Hi All,

This is my first hack build. I have been on g5's for the past 8 years and it's time for an update the won't break the bank. I will be using the machine for video editing and will be using FCP studio 2, and Adobe CS 6 premier and AE. I have been researching for a month now and I'm going to pull the trigger on black Friday. If some of the more experienced builders on the forum can double check the compatibility of the build that would be most appreciated!!

Here it is:

Corsair Carbide Series 500R case
EVGA GTX-680 2GB video card
ASUS P9X79 PRO LGA 2011 Board
i7 3930k 6 core
2x Seagate Barracuda 1tb drives
SanDisk extreme 120gb ssd
Corsair Vengence 32gb 1866 ram
Corsair h60 cpu cooler
Corsair HX series 750 w
Sony Optiarc 24x dvd burner
TL-WDN4800 wireless card

Any issues or am I missing anything? Is this optimized for video editing?

MOBO may not be the easiest but worth the extra trouble. Power Management and sleep may not work.

What do you mean when you say "not the easiest"?
