Looks nice. I love my hard drive space, and if I were building a new computer I would not go under 500GB, but that's just me. Not to mention, video editing tends to fill a drive real fast. Hehe. Also, you have not listed a operating system.

PSU I would change. My suggestion go 650 to 750. that will ensure you have enough for upgrades in the future.
Lowest for any new build should be 500 watts as far as I'm concerned. Anything less with the new hardware is worthless.
