    You don't need a 4820K.
    Going to assume it's main use is gaming. And you dont need to stray past a 4770k for that as you're just dropping more money for a 2011 Socket Motherboard for the 4820k compared to a cheaper 1150 socket on the 4770k.

    So you're saying I can go lower on the cpu and the motherboard well what would you recommend?

    40 bucks for shipping of the case, lulz.

    Yea, definetly throw in an SSD(like 840 EVO).

    What's the main purpose of the build?

    If gaming only->you don't need 16GB of RAM and the 4820K(and obv, this LGA 2011 board).
    So:

    4670K + Z87-A(a pretty good board, you can do a nice OC on it and it's not pricey compared to some other boards) + 8GB of RAM

    or

    same as - 4670K + 4770K(unless more games will start profiting from hyperthreading, you won't need it)

    And regarding the 4820K, buy it only if you're going to upgrade to the 4930K/4960X in the future, but anyway, I wouldn't(especially if you're going to use this PC only for gaming).

    Oh, then the 4770K and 16GB will be a great combo.

    Somehow I pefer the 840 EVO when it comes to SSDs.
    Take a look:http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Compare...0GB/1511vs1594
    There's a ten bucks difference, so you dedice wether to buy it or no:
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E3W1726/?tag=pcpapi-20

    As you can see, there are multiple complaints around the ********* about MSI's quality control and their support. The board itself is great, but if you ge it DOA or if something breaks on it, I'm not 100% certain what will happen when you call the support..(I have never called them, so that might just be a wrong assumption).

    Unfortunately, this is/was a great deal , which apperars to be over now, because the PSU is out of stock(SeaSonic, 620W, 80+Bronze). This one is great, too.

    BTW, why not a bit bigger monitor(like 23-24 inches)?

    .
    The Z87-A should be in that price range(and The Z87 Fatal1ty Killer, but AFAIK, Asus's slightly more reliable then AS, atleast according to what ********* say).
    But yea, whichever you choose, you won't lose anything and will get a great board.

    Seems pretty ok now.
    Could maybe step down a notch on the RAM as even for Video editing half of your 16gb wont even come into play mostly.

    Cool board, but if I was going to get it, I'd get some better cooler as these mentioned above(if I'm not wrong) will be good enough to OC your CPU to the 212's "normal" boundaries.
