Approximate Purchase Date: next 2 weeks

Budget Range: max $1600 After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: video editing with adobe premier, other general everyday usage

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country of Origin: U.S.

Parts Preferences: nothing major (see list below)

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: No

Additional Comments: I've put together a list from newegg that I think will do pretty well. This is my first build, so I'm open to suggestions. The Nvidia GTX 470 GPU is recommend by adobe for the Premier software. Please just take a look at my list and see what you think. I can't really increase my current price by much right now, but I could possibly upgrade in the future. I know a RAID setup is suggested for Premiere but right now I don't think I have the budget or the know-how for that. That's something I can always add down the road. Comments/Suggestions Welcome.

you'd be crazy not to go Sandy Bridge at this point in time... here's a build (based on some of your choices), great for video-editing and within budget:
