I rate it a 7. Your rig is more than sufficient for your needs. However, I would suggest getting an ATI CF capable GPU to run in hybrid CF with the onboard gpu on your mobo. It will add speed to your video work. Any upgrades you would do to anything else there would be strictly for bravado, but I'm guilty of that because I'm not a gamer, I love hardware and benching. If you are doing alot of photo/video/music work, then a few useful upgrades for you would be to get another SSD or sell that one and get 2 x 64gb's for raid 0 to enhance speed for the editing, encoding, and rendering. Also, add another 500gb WD Black and run those in raid 0 for speed of non essential programs and basic storage of your finished work as well. Keep a system image backed up on an external with acronis, or just to store important files. I just built a rig for a lady that does photography & videography. I set her up the same way and it absolutely murders all her tasks. You still have a strong rig for your work so don't listen to these people trying to tell you do all these upgrades that wouldn't give you much more power for what you do than what you already have. Hope that helps!
