I missed this, sorry.

If you feel like saving some money, downgrade the case to a HAF 922 which is basically a slightly smaller 932.

16gb of ram is quite a lot, you could go for 8gb instead and add more when needed.

You could also get a Nvidia 560ti video card instead of the 570. Honestly, I've never really like the 570, there's nothing much wrong with it, but I just never thought it fit in the market. You could also consider a AMD 6950.

If you have a bit more money, you could upgrade the processor to an i7-2600k although I would only do that if you do a lot of video editing.

You could also upgrade the graphics card to a Nvidia 680 or AMD 6970ghz edition.

Agreed with most of this. Going from recommending a 560ti or 6950 to saying a 680/7970GE is quite a jump though. Go for the 670 and save yourself $100 with very little performance drop.

I'm saying that the 570 is a good card, but if has doesn't have much to spend, get a 560ti and if he had more, he can get a 680. It all depends on the budget.
