Hi guys, I am not completely new to building a pc, but its been 7 or 8 years since I last built one. Things have changed a bit since then. My system is getting old and I want to invest some money in a new one that will hopefully last me ideally 4-5 years. Trying not to buy the fastest or newest necessarily, but items that are a good bang for the buck.

I plan on using my system as follows:
30% office work and research (MS Office, Adobe Acrobat etc)
20% video editing and rendering (Adobe CS6 Premier, Sony Vegas etc.)
20% photo editing (Adobe CS6, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash etc)
30% streaming media, surfing the web)
I am not a gamer, but might try some now.

I will try to buy these or similar items over a period of a few weeks as I see good deals appearing online. Let me know your thoughts please.

    Operating system: (Latest)
    Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit ($140)

    Processor: (new, lot of bang for the dollar)
    Intel Core i7-3770K ($320)

    Mother board: (has some cool features)
    ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE ($270)

    Graphic card: (new, bang for the buck, 4 monitor support, might get a 2nd GPU in the future)
    NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660 Ti ($300)

    RAM: (plan on multi-tasking on 4 monitors a lot)
    CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10 ($150)

    SSD: (C drive for OS and programs, D drive for media files I am working on)
    (2X) SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC256B/WW 2.5" 256GB ($190)

    Hard drive: (E drive for completed projects, F drive for RAID back up of the other drives)
    (2X) Seagate Barracuda 7200 3 TB ST3000DM001 ($140)

    Case: (contains a 240mm cooling unit vent)
    Corsair Carbide Series 500R ($90)

    CPU Cooling: (plan on overclocking a bit)
    CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 ($100)

    Power supply: (Seems enough power, might need more)
    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 CP-9020038-NA ($65)

    Optical drive: (BlueRay, DVD and CD burners, all in one)
    ASUS Black 12X BD-R BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS ($60)

    Monitors: (Need lots of work space, 3X 27" parallel to eachother, 4th on top 47" for tv/streaming media purposes)
    (3X) ViewSonic VX2770Smh-LED Black 27" 7ms (GTG) IPS-Panel ($300)
    (1X) LG 47LV4400 47" Class LED HDTV - 1080p ($500)

    Speakers: (newer with good reviews)
    Logitech Speaker System Z623 ($130)

    Keyboard & mouse: (more manual buttons the better)
    Logitech MX 5500 ($135)

    Router: (need to do some more research on this)
    Linksys EA6500 ($200)

Of course starting out I didnt think I would be up to $4000 on this system. If I find a pre-built comparable system for significantly cheaper, I will opt for that instead. Its the monitors that are super pricey in my dream system. lol
