I'm looking to build a gaming/video editing machine.
This is what I have so far: PC Partpicker Link
Any advice on where to cut unnessary spending or increase performance while not increasing the cost too much will be greatly appreciated.
Feel free to steal my build if you want.

For video editing, I would suggest going with the i7 3820. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115229&Tpk=3820 It will surely be better than the 2600k for video rendering. Unfortunately, it's a different socket (LGA 2011), but this socket is newer, and most (if not all) of the motherboards come with better chipsets than the standard LGA 1155 socket motherboards.
Nice system there.
Great CPU and RAM
Always good to have SSD for bott and you videos and games on a hard drive!
Go for it!

Better then mine! Should be a great build. But like Jackster said an SSD would be great.
