Default First build Silverstone FT03 case

hello all. first time build. I'm gonna be doing video editing, gaming in the near
future, and multi tasking with a secondary monitor.When i am gaming or editing, i want
to be able to have other functions running on the side. such as Skype and internet browsing.
I don't want background actions to slow me down such as video rendering.

Budget: I'm going to list the parts below that i picked out so far. The total so far is at $1100.
I still need to choose a power supply and an SSD to store the OS. As well as a regular hard drive
for the bulk of storage. I only chose to run with one video card for the time being. But i want to
be able to upgrade to dual when i need it later in the future.I don't want to exceed $1500
for the initial build.

Parts list: Buying all parts from Newegg.com

Motherboard is the Asus Maximus V Gene. I chose this in hopes of not having to upgrade this
part of the build for a long wile.

CPU:Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core

Video card:EVGA SuperClocked+ 03G-P4-3663-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB 192-bit
GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card:
Again not sure. I chose this because I want a less flashy looking card.

RAM:Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB)
240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800):
I have heard great things about Mushkin,they are located here in Denver CO. So I would like to run
with this brand. I am open to other brands if it comes to that.

Power supply: all i know is that it needs to be modular and fit into my case.
when and if i upgrade to dual SLI, I want the power supply to be capable of provide the power.

Storage: I want an SSD just to store the Windows 7 OS. As for the main storage on a regular
HDD, I could use a suggestion for level of capacity.

Monitor: I already have a SEIKI 39" LED 1080p TV with an HDMI port. this will be my main monitor. In the future i want to add a much smaller monitor for the multi tasking side of things. Can this be done with just one video card?

Overclocking: I'll jump into this when I'm ready to upgrade parts for cooling. I don't think I need to do this now.

I want to build this PC ASAP. I have looked at threads like this and read the sticky post regarding asking for help with new builds. I hope I gave all the information needed. I would be grateful for help with this
build.
