8GB of ram

That should save you a lot.
Okay I'll probably copy n paste my spread sheet change those and see what I can save. Open to suggestions! Thanks to the help so far, I could never trust myself to check the benchmarks and expect a purchase off that, its best to gather real opinions on what own and test.

Thanks!

I still think he can pull it off and it is a mistake to get a single 580. But that is simply my opinion. It is his build.

Get a COUGAR PSU. They're very well made, reliable, and you can get one with the same wattage for half the price of that Corsair.

Ok i will eat my cookie!, and i am Mr.Expert (just kidding) but i meant more or less from most of the people i have talked to who are running those rigs is that they wished from the start for a single GPU, and in the future if he decides to upgrade 2 580's in SLI beat 6950's in the future

Getting back on topic...

OP, you can honestly save money on changing out the CPU, MOBO, GPU, RAM, and CPU COOLER. Quite a bit actually. What parts in your original list are you deadset on keeping? Because I am pretty sure we can easily get you to your goal if you let us change out the parts I listed in this post.

I think you are spending too much on MOBO. I imagine you are looking for P67?

RAM has been covered.

GPU has been covered.

CPU has been covered but I will state again that even with the difference in editing between the 2500k and 2600k I still don't think the difference is worth the price difference.

CPU COOLER has been covered.

you could get a hyper 212+ for 20 bucks and it will preform sufficently well to allow high overclocks, also, consider a 570 or 570 2.5gb or 6970, or get a 9600gso for 20 bucks and wait till the next generation comes out and snag a 580 at a steep discount

Well originally I wanted to go with the theme just for something nice to look at, but if I can get a PC built keeping the i7 2600(K) and a GPU that allows me to play BF3 on Max or Ultra I'll be happy. Basically Gaming (2012+ Games). Video Editing. Nice looking computer to look at.

Yeah I honestly never have heard of Cougar either, not saying they are bad just never heard any honest reviews or anything from them.
