I use this for video edit with Adobe Cs6 Master suite/collection & Blender 3D I also create flash video and all the assets needed for it This build will get you through the longest footage in a decent amount of time. You could add 16gb more Ram for another (Market price) and it will be a few minutes quicker when editing 20-30 minute scenes. If editing 5 to 10 minute scenes that 16gb I used is fine. Rendering 3d in Blender? Get the ram and skip the quadro card and grab two GTX's instead. I used the Quadro card at the time of build due to 'that is what was there' and I thought Adobe Ray Trace was something I was going to use, instead I know use Blender to create anything 3D and that software is superior for rendering then Adobe as it will access 'chained' GPU's more efficiently then Adobe does. FWIW
If you went over to get one of these from the known high end brands it would cost you about 3800, easy... I did it for 2000 but the market changes and at time of edit has dropped in half.
The assembly is so easy an 11 year old Chinese boy could do it and probably does at those big name places. The only thing I may have done different was get a case that had 3pin fan connectors in it, so I have speed control over the intake and exhaust fans too. I did add a Cougar for a side intake. My side intake and rear exhaust are set at low. The CPU is set at Auto. The MB on average is about 94F and the Cpu is about 108F when editing,rendering and having 3-4 Adobe programs open while downloading an update or some assets.
