That extra real restate helps so much with any video editing or 3D modelling.

Good build but you did miss out on some deals this Black Friday that would've saved you some money.

A 120 GB Vertex 3 went on sale on Newegg for $50, other 120 GB SSDs were in the $70 range.
A 3 TB internal desktop HDD went on sale on Newegg for $70 or so (IIRC)
An ASUS 23" LED-backlit monitor with 2 ms response time went on sale for $119 after MIR/coupon (9 bucks more than the monitor you have litsed, but it's 3" greater in diagonal size)

Honestly, stay up until 2:15 AM central time (or 12:15 AM pacific/Newegg time) and the Cyber Monday deals go live. In my experience, CM deals are better than Black Friday generally. If you want a good website to find deals, slickdeals.net is the best.
