Building new computer

I've been slowly gathering up the pieces to build me a new computer and today I should be getting the rest of the pieces.
So far I have the Antec P280 (Google Affiliate Ad), a Rosewill Capstone 650 W power supply, a LITE-ON optical drive, a Kingston 64 GB SSD, and a Western Digital 1 TB hard drive.
My initial plan is to install Microsoft Windows 8 Pro (Google Affiliate Ad) onto the computer as I really want to see what it is like on some hardware. Previously I've only tried it as a virtual machine and wasn't all that impressed. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be ok to use. Unfortunately, I have read that my video editing software doesn't work well or at all with Windows 8, so I may be forced to use Windows 7 if that's truly the case.
What still has to come is the Asus US P8Z77-V Motherboard (Google Affiliate Ad), Intel i7-3770 CPU, and an Antec KUHLER H2O 620 CPU Liquid Cooling (Google Affiliate Ad).
Stay tuned for more...
