Don't forget your OS...are you going with Windows 7 or Windows 8?

Make sure they are both 64-bit versions

I agree with this.
No need for the 7950 unless you're doing heavier gaming. The 7870 should be sufficient. However you did say "monitors" so if you're planning on gaming on 2 monitors I would suggest the 7950 because it has more ram.

as for the motherboard, i never skimp since my old biostar. but valid point about overkill, however i'd rather have it and not need it, then not have it and need it. really up to what you know you need vs what you think you may need and will never need.

ssd is a nice thing to have, yet with video editing you'll suck up a ton of hd space. the size needed while editing videos its a very bad investment. ssd isn't going to help performance other than boot/shut down and program load times.
the focus here is on rendering and storing these files.
the psu is overkill but a quality psu you can move on to a new system down the road, with the extra headroom there's never a worry.
the ram i picked due to quality and colors. theres cheaper out there but i like knowing that i can look into my system and it looks all geek-sexy

Yeah, of course the i7 will come in handy, but not $90-extra-handy. It performs on-par with the i7 for a fraction of the price. And while it's rough that you had a bad experience with a motherboard, it doesn't mean all less-than-high-end motherboards are trash. At this budget point, the money saved from your proposed motherboard is far better spent elsewhere. And I still insist an SSD is important for overall system response, etc. With a 240gb SSD, video files could be moved to the SSD to work with temporarily and stored later on the TB drive when finished.

Save yourself a little bit and get these. I'm also a little confused, since in your initial post you mentioned going up a notch, but you've selected a regular 560 which is actually a notch down from your 560ti.

I probably would just buy another 560ti but it looks like they're discontinued. I don't want to downgrade like some people are suggesting and I'd like to stick with this line since I'm already familiar with it, but I'm having a hard time finding something comparable to the 560ti that doesn't involve moving up to a 660ti which is significantly more expensive

The 7870 is actually going to be stronger than the 560ti, it's comparable if not faster than a regular 570. Once overclocked will easily be in 580 range.

It has 2 Display ports,1 DVI and 1 HDMI. Monitors come standard with HDMI, so this won't be an issue.
