This is FTW!

You got a great 6 core CPU with hyperthreading that overclocks really well, and for about $200 less, can match the power of a 5930k. Also, the H100i is a great water cooler that will help keep the CPU cool under heavy loads, even when overclocked. You get 32 GB of RAM, with video editing, the more RAM you throw at the program the better. You get a super fast Samsung SSD, which at 512 GB is pretty big. Also, the 2 TB hybrid drive will be great for storing all your large files and accessing them quickly because it has a 8 GB caching drive within it. Then you have the GPU, the almighty 980 Ti, which really doesnt have to be justified at all. You have a clean, large case with an excellent amount of room for cable management and it being Red/Black ties all the parts together into 1 cohesive theme. And finally, the large 850W PSU which is at 80+ gold efficiency, and has lots of headroom for overclocking, or adding another 980 Ti.

Overall, I think this is the best build possible for video editing within your budget. Please dont hesitate to contact me if you want me to make any changes or need any other advice about this build. Also, feel free to ask me any questions. Good luck, merry Christmas, happy building and thank you for joining PC Master Race!
