    I want to give a present to my brother. While he is learning and will make use of intensive graphic and video softwares, I want to give a PC ample enough and future proof for the tasks.

    It is about $1.8K within my 2K budget.

    The specs are great except the PSU.. why not buy a fully modular corsair ax860i ? its about $230 but will definitely can handle that GPU on full load.

    I have i7 3770, 8 GBs DDR3 and GTX 750 ti and I can still edit videos fast :)

    +1 for upping the PSU a bit, but apart from that, that's a monster PC.

    Thanks!

    I am not well understanding about PC gig. I didn't aware that PSU plays important role with GPU.
    I am now added Corsair AX860i PSU and CPU Cooling Fan.

    It's a nice PC, but I'd recommend to increase RAM to 32 Gb and PSU to 900-1000W.
