Do you know what applications you will be using yet ?
I really recommend finding some representative benchmarks
at a site like Anandtech, to make sure you are starting
with the right platform.
Some people use hardware acceleration for their video station,
and that adds the complication of finding a motherboard which
is compatible with the accelerator card(s). If you are
planning on buying a hardware accelerator, that may have
a major bearing on what motherboard you can buy. Some
of the Canopus stuff, doesn't work with just any motherboard.
