My future gaming rig under $2000

hello i am looking to build my own gaming rig under $2000 including a monitor. Could someone recommend some parts. I was thinking of 16gb of ram and win 8 and other than that i am not sure. I am looking to play planetside 2 and other fps. I also might do some video editing so i need a good graphics card.
Thanks
