Look at my sig, downgrade the case (to a $100 HAF or Corsair case), GPU (this depend's on how much you game) and PSU (to 600W), upgrade the CPU to an i7-3770k and RAM to 16GB. Drop/downgrade the SSD if you wanted to save more cash. That will edit quite nicely.

The build cost me $1700 AUD, so downgrading some parts then accounting for the fact everything is expensive down here, that should put you around $1500.

Definitely a 256GB SSD as a boot drive. I would suggest you read the ssystem builder articles and go from there. Tom's builds some awesome machines for every budget.

Before I can offer a suggestion, my question to you would be: how many objects in a scene do you plan on rendering - if it's more than 1000, then you should look into a workstation rendering card - cost on average is about $450, get a TESLA card for more power. For less power, any standard, high quality gaming card will do.
