If you do a lot more editing than gaming, you might consider the i7-860 instead of the i5-750, but it's about $80 more. That's the only change I would make to MadAdmiral's build, and only if you do a lot more editing than anything else and don't mind stretching your budget just a little bit.
Thanks, I am hoping that consumer prices come down a little, or start looking for cheap parts. I assume that I might have to drop 1200, how long do you feel that will last? I plan on doing some podcasts that is in the woodworks of being produced right now and want to know if there are any specific sound cards you would suggests too thanks for your input guys.
