opinions wanted on computer build $1000+

It looks like something on the motherboard in my 4-5 year old computer has been going and finally went. I wanted to wait for Ivy Bridge, but I won't make it. I don't do gaming or overclocking only Photochop CS5 and work with raw files, so my pics and directories can be large. From what I've read the i7-2700 is almost as fast as the much more expensive processors, so I leaning towards that. Sounds like the new Sandy Bridge may not be that much better than the 2700 considering the price difference. I may wait for Black Friday (Monday) and shop from Newegg and Amazon. Want SATA III and USB 3.0. Here's where I am:

Iintel i7-2700K
ASUS P8Z68-V Pro motherboard
Corsair vengence 1600 mHz 16GB
Windows Home Premium 64bit
120GB SSD drive for boot - looking to see what's on sale

Case SSD support USB 3.0 - live in dusty area so should have filters will need room for up to 4 hard drives - suggestions?

Video card - not sure what to go with?


Samsung i7
