Video Editing Build (some gaming)

Hey guys. I am purchasing a new pc sometime soon and would like input on the best build I can get for $1000. Must include an OS, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Only parts from newegg.ca and amazon.ca please. The build is for rendering hd videos h.264 (not 3d editing). I also play LoL. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

  3. If your primary goal is to do the Video rendering and editing, u should go for Quadro or Firepro series.
  4. No, you don't need a Quadro or Firepro for video editing and rendering. If you're using a CUDA application like Premiere, a consumer Geforce card will work fine, especially since you can get more CUDA cores and memory bandwidth for your money.

    Yeah if it's running off CUDA you can pretty much scrap the build I suggested.
