Default Need advice on new PC purchase.

Hello everyone,

I am planning on buying a custom built PC from ncix.ca. I have made a few customizations to one of the PC's that they offer and I would love some feedback as this is my first time buying a PC. I plan to use this for gaming and HD video editing. I will list the parts of the default build and then the changes I have made. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Vesta i7 5800 SLI
Intel Core i7 3770K Processor - changed to i5 3570k (I did this to cut cost and I heard the i7 is not necessary)
Corsair H100 Liquid Cooling - changed to H60 (I read somewhere that the H100 doesnt fit will in the antec 1200 also I don't plan on overclocking anytime soon)
Corsair Vengeance C70 case - changed to antec 1200 case (I don't like the look of the C70)
8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM - no change
ASUS GTX 680 DirectCU II Graphics - changed to 670 (to cut cost)
120GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD - no change
2TB Seagate 7200RPM Storage Drive - no change
24x ASUS DVD/CD Writer - no change
750W Corsair HX Series PSU - no change

Thank you kindly
