If you're looking to game, I would suggest getting a better graphics card. More along the lines of a GTX 780. Maybe down-grade on the cooler a little bit and possibly the Motherboard. This computer is looking like a Server!

by down grade I mean allow more room for spending on the 780

What exactly do you imply when you say 'like a server?'

Thanks ,

Video Editing Mainly, but also 3D rendering and such.

Thanks,

I would stick with the 16Gb RAM since 3d Rendering and editing takes up a chunk of it... the Video Card should hold well for gaming but I would go for the 780 for 3d rendering etc... All in all, it is good.

You should try to get a different hard drive. Seagate has a much higher rate of failure

I have had a 1Tb Seagate for a very long time now... it goes fine... I would recommend it...
