AMD Is Better for rendering.

Only when on a severe budget. An E3-1231 V3 will out-perform the FX-8350 in rendering.

So what are all the GTX980's going to be doing for this build? (FYI, just because it's called a "video card" doesn't mean you should pile as much of it into the build as feasible. In fact, for most video editing, performance scaling drops off abruptly with anything beyond a GTX750 when paired with such a weak CPU. )

Green drives are terrible for video editing. Pass.

Where's the power supply and operating system?

The more the cards, the more peformance. I seem to be forgetting about bottlenecks.
