Adobe-Oriented Build For $1,000-1,500

Hey all! I am looking to make my first build and I honestly do not know much about hardware. I am a wedding photographer/videographer and have a very media-heavy workload, and I am looking to make a build from scratch. I mostly use all Adobe products including: After Effects, Premiere Pro, Maya, Lightroom, Photoshop, and Illustrator.

I would like a build that can handle sifting through 8-10 hours of 1080p & 1440p footage without a glitch. I also plan to touch base with 4K footage from time to time, so I need the build to be able to at least edit and render in a fair amount of time.

I don't game often on PC but I plan to try it out so I'd like the build to handle that as well. Anything below budget is very welcome here. Any help is greatly appreciated in advanced!

Budget: $1,000 or $1700 max for 4k editing

Location: USA

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming, Rendering, Editing, perhaps Streaming as well

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): No Peripherals

Operating System required: Unsure.

The Quad-channel Haswell-E i7 with a 30-bit GPU should be spot-on for your editing needs, with about good gaming as well.. The Firepro 5100 will really speed up ur editing workload as compared to a GTX 970 or R9 390 GPU..

I like the first build. Just saying, you can get much cheaper DDR4 32GB, for around $160. Also, I would get a higher-end PSU, like a EVGA 650G2. Also, another choice for the motherboard would be the X99-PRO from ASUS that is more reliable, and less gaming-orientated.
