I have compiled a page of parts I will be using to build my new video editing machine. Next year I will be enrolling in an advanced media studies diploma, so this computer is intended to help me improve before then, and ultimatley be used during my education period. It will also be used as a gaming machine, seeing as I was recently seduced by the atmosphere of my first LAN party.
The case is
set in concrete, please dont tell me it sucks because its allready been ordered. The main theme behind my case and hardware is blue lights and blue PCB where possible. Lastly I do not intend to set up SLI, even though the mbod supports it.
What would help me most is if you could look it over and just make a list of things you would change if you were building it. Example:

-Ulead video studio is no good
-Download AVG free instead of wasting $40 on pc-cillin
-Get XP Pro instead of Home
The list of parts is here.
Give the images time to load, it is a little slow.
Thanks, all advice much appreciated!
