Hey everyone, would love to know what you guys think of the components list I've arrived at after much deliberation.

I'm in Canada here, and have decided to go with all Newegg-sourced parts for the sake of ordering/shipping simplicity and also because their Canadian pricing does seem to be quite competitive overall.

As I stated in the title, this rig will be used for HD gaming and also HD video/audio editing. It is probably somewhat overbuilt, but I have a few family members contributing to the total cost as my Christmas gift for this year, so I went a little higher-end on some aspects of the build than I would have were I to be paying for it entirely myself.

Why get a non-K processor and get a very nice overclock ready board? Why no SSD?
