New Build for Video-Editing, Illustration, and Gaming

Hello, I'm a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle. I need help with my first build which is essentially nothing at the moment. I will list as much information as I can to help properly produce the right build. Thank you so much for helping me out.

The build will be used for video-editing, illustration, and gaming. I would say it will be used more for video-editing and illustration than for gaming. However, I do wish to play games at reasonably high settings.

Adobe Photoshop CS6
Adobe Premiere CS6
Sony Vegas Pro 12
Corel Painter 12
ZBrush 4R5

Approximate Purchase Date: Within 2 months
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Video-Editing & Illustration, Gaming, Surfing Internet
Are you buying a monitor: Yes
Parts to Upgrade: Everything
Do you need to buy OS: Yes
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: None
Overclocking: Not Sure
Budget Range: $1500-2000

Any other information needed I will gladly give.
Thank You.

  2. Monitor is mostly up to you. I have no idea if you care that much about 60Hz or 120Hz, or if you just want stable 60 frames or whatever.
