I'm the gaming guy, not the video editing guy, but I do have a little knowledge. IMHO, you are all set! Your use is what the 5950 was born to do, and it will do it very well. There's plenty of everything else to achieve your aims at a very high level. And under budget, too!

The Velox is often touted as the best airflow midtower, and the GPU mounted upside down in the reversal of the normal window position allows heat to escape upwards where it want to go anyway. I don't anticipate any problems.

It seems you just want 2 of the 6TB HHDs, and not a raid array. If that's the case, you might want to include that advisory in the Build Comments to avoid confusion. If you can saturate 128 GB of RAM, it's in the budget. Having a brand name PSU is also peace of mind. Looks all good to me.   

I'm not sure you have to do this, but the 2/4 year warranty FREE upgrade may need to be selected. There's also a free mouse pad available.

Thank You Cretae! I actually already have a dedicated NAS drive station that I'm using so the RAID array isn't really necessary for me at this point. Thanks again for input!

I agree with @Cretae on this one.


Having an obsession of being thorough, I'll make two points -- overall, nit picky.

The RTX 3080 is the sweet spot (i.e., best value):

Nevertheless, the RTX 3080 Ti does provide value in projects containing many effects:


Source: Adobe Premiere Pro - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti & 3080 Ti Performance | Puget Systems
(The 4K Heavy GPU Effects results show a mostly predictable scale. Otherwise, the benefits top out when reaching the RTX 3080 or the performance is flat (within margin of error) across the board.)

MrCheetah is our resident studio graphics guy on the Forums. Having his endorsement is a lot better than mine for your use!

Neither of us mentioned, but the 3080 will have no problem with running 2 monitors at once. You have a solid build.
