I'm putting a build together over the weekend and would like some experienced input since I haven't built in a couple of years. Main use will be gaming and video or photo editing.

Thanks for any feedback

Pretty damn good except you forgot a CPU cooler. I recommend a liquid cooler, for example a h100i.

Updated with the Noctua, thanks for catch. Any power supply suggestions?

I'd swap out the PSU, a 550w would suffice or 750w if you intend to add a second GPU later. I'd go with http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550bbefx or http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr

The monitor is going to be great for gaming, but it is a TN panel which has inferior colour reproduction compared to an IPS panel. This may not be ideal for photo or video work.

I agree about the monitor, i'm planning on setting up a 2nd monitor that will be an ips panel but am having a hard time decing, any suggestions on ips panel for photo and video editing as well as general use?

ok, looking for some advice for monitor selections, i'm considering an xl2729z for gaming and the pb278q for a dual setup for photo and video editing and all around excellent ips monitor, anyone have a better suggestion to consider?
