Don't worry about what the guy before me said, all of that will fit in your case no problem.

-For a cooler I'd say don't bother with the Corsair Hydro series. They are more expensive then the top air coolers but they have just about the same cooling performance. The Venomous-X is my favourite, it has almost the same performance as the Noctua NH-D14 and ThermalRight Silver Arrow (top air coolers on the market currently) but it's a bit smaller which means it won't get in the way of other components like RAM with large heatsinks. But having a performance cooler isn't going make much of a difference to the systems life span if you are not going to overclock the CPU and have it near it's maximum temp under load most of the time. Seeing as how you said that you aren't going to overclock it then i'd say you would be fine with the stock cooler.

-For an SSD I would say go with a 64GB Crucial C300 and use it just for the OS and some of your favourite programs. The C300 has faster read speeds then almost all of the other SSD's in the same price bracket at the cost of slower write speeds. But i don't see a point in blazing fast write speeds for SSD's in my opinion.

-For PSU, as said before, get a better brand. Corsair is my pick when it comes to PSU's. If i were you i would get the Corsair TX650W V2.

-For HDD I'd get a Samsung F3. If i were you i'd prefer to have two 1TB HDD instead of one 2TB HDD's. That way if one fails you have another. But that's just my opinion, not really necessary.

Ok I have read some great replies at this point and I am very close to scrapping the build and starting over with the i5 2500k as my CPU. But I would like to know this...

1. With just day to day computing will I see any real difference between the two CPUs?
2. Whenever I get into video editing and rendering, will the i5 2500k be noticeably better?
3. Are we talking about preference or is the i5 2500k really that much better of a CPU?

1. No
2. I think you would be better off with the 1090T for that kind of work because of the extra cores. The 2500k would be better in games and applications that wouldn't utilize all 6 cores of the 1090T.
3. The 2500k is better in benchmarks. But you're not going to notice the difference much in day to day stuff. Probably shave a second or two off of some applications but not really noticeable.

Yes stick with the AMD for what you're doing. I am a noob and had 0 idea that it would be better for video editing.

Do yourself a favor and go with an Intel build if your putting out that kind of money.

You dont need more than 600 watts for any of the systems that have been suggested.
