  1. It doesn't really matter for this build, but "monitor resolution" is not asking for a preference - it's asking what resolution your monitor uses (you should generally be using the highest one to get the best performance). It matters in gaming builds but in rendering builds it's not quite as important.

    You will need to spend a little extra if you plan to SLI in the future. If you only ever run one card you can save $30 on a PSU and $40 on a motherboard. Also, you can't overclock the build below. It would really only cost you an extra $20 on the processor (2600K) and $30 on an aftermarket cpu cooler to give yourself that option, but for your usage cpu clock speeds are less important than they would be in a gaming build.

    ($300) i7-2600
    ($190) ASUS ENGTX560 - well reviewed with a mild overclock. For video editing builds you're better off with nvidia
    ($125) ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 - there are cheaper LGA 1155 motherboards but if you want to SLI you need x8/x8 mode
    ($41) Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2x4GB) 1600mhz, 1.5V, CL9
    ($90) XFX Core Edition PRO650W - solid performer and will run two 560's
    ($40) NZXT Gamma - this is a great case for $40

    Total: $786

    If you give up on SLI then you can use these parts to replace the PSU and motherboard above:
    ($60) SeaSonic S12II 520W - this is a really good PSU
    ($86) ASRock H67M-GE - this is a budget board with no bells and whistles
