Is this Hardware configuration Good?

Hi there,
Looking to edit HD film and as a result upgrade my system so I can then buy hit film and make cool films :)
I am considering ordering from Ibuypower gaming desktops. The system below will have a 20% overclock on the processor and use liquid cooling. If I am correct the gtx 670 should be even superior than the gtx 580. If anyone notices anything that would mean hitfilm would not perform well while running lots of effects, please let me know before I hit the send key (lol!) Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    That system looks sweet.

    This setup looks pretty darn good, the GTX 670 is great! I bought one to speed up my real time rendering and rendering times.
    I did notice a difference when I upgraded to a Solid State drive from my Western Digital Black Hard Drive for certain things as well :)
    Either way though, your system will run HF plenty fine ;)
    Regarding the 670 vs the 580, in general the 670 is much better specifically in games, heat and power use. The only issue was its compute power I think was fairly close if not slightly lower than the 580 (Based on benchmarks). However, I don't know how much that affects HitFilm.
