I've upgraded a few pc's; cards, processors, etc, but never built from scratch. I'd like to build a new super computer for my office, which will also double as a place for my photos and video, and be a gaming machine as well. What do you folks think of these specs? Will all this stuff work together? I've done some homework, but I'd love to hear experienced builders have to say. Thanks in advance...

Here is my shopping list from NewEgg:
