First time building a PC. Gonna try to get as many parts as I can for cheap(er) on and around Black Friday.

The i7 and 16 gigs of RAM is for Sony Vegas and the 850 watt PSU is for a second 780 in the future.

Solid build. Don't know what you can change to make it better. Perhaps the motherboard? But imo it's enough.

Cool, glad to hear it. Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything obvious.

That would be for the OS right?

Would that be something I could buy later and install fairly easily? I barely have the cash for the current part list.

Yeah. It's foolproof.

You need an SSD for something like Sony Vegas plus making your general use much better.
You also need a CPU cooler, don't go with the stock cooler.

I recommend a Phanteks PH-TC14PE, as it cools better than the Noctua NH-D14 and is ever so slightly louder (1-2 dB). But it doesn't look hideous like the Noctua.

Avoid closed loop coolers. The H110 doesn't beat the Phanteks but by maybe 3 degrees, but it's a LOT louder.

Okay, a few people said I wouldn't need a cooler unless I overclocked but I'll look into getting one sooner than that.

And for the SSD would I just install programs that I used a lot on it? (Like Vegas, Photoshop and the OS)

Yes, that's the most common way people use SSDs since they don't have a lot of space.

I wouldn't bother with the SSD unless you had plenty of money to throw around.
