I was thinking of using this build to play games like Arkham Knight and maybe The Crew, and edit with Sony Vegas Movie Studio. Any suggestions/comments?

Are you going to overclock?

No. Thus, I'm sticking with the stock cooler.

Ok. Umm...I wouldn't use that case if I were you. I have it (You can see it in my build) It provides decent airflow, but I wouldn't trust it with a GPU, I would go for the Cooler Master N200 If I were you. Also you may want to consider that Hard drive...it is not reliable, This Hitachi is much better. It is a server grade hard drive so it won't fail you. It is more pricy though. Hope this helps. Good luck with the build

If you're doing HD editing consider 32gb of memory, a Crucial M550 SSD, about 750-850w PSU and a bigger case to start with.

Do you think that the SSD is really vital to editing? The 32GB Ram is already pushing me out of my price range.

Not sure. Try posting this on the Adobe Premiere Pro Hardware forum. I know from experience the first thing they'll probably suggest is either the memory increase or the power supply. A lot of people in that forum who build NLE systems for a living.
