It's actually the first and only showdown - I don't have as much time as I'd like to do thorough research on this and need to get moving - have actually looked at a number of previous posts on this site with recommendations for video editing, though many of the builds also include gaming and what not. I will be using this computer more or less strictly for editing, as I have a cheapo computer that works great for everyday work use. Will be importing RAW video footage so storage is certainly a consideration. I mostly use After Effects (with lots of effects), Premiere Pro, etc. I have a preliminary list of parts that I have cobbled together from various posts as I mentioned, but if someone could recommend me a build this would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: footage I work with is 2.5k RAW - not planning on working with 4k for now, but the 2.5k files are still huge in that format.
Also a couple things I forgot, I also need a decent monitor and would like to stay under $3k with that included, though I could go over if it is necessary. And I noticed a number of people recommended Windows 10 Pro recently on similar builds - any reason in particular?
