Went with Skylake, 16gb of DDR4, managed to fit in an SSD with 2TB of mass storage because video editing takes up quite a bit when saving videos. Also chose the R9 390 because it is an amazing card for $300. Any questions just ask :)

If u need a proper Workstation.. Without going into multi-faceted details,

http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/guides/workstation-adobe-4k-guide.pdf

A proper workstation would need a Xeon or Haswell-E cpu as Xeons do offer massive performance scaling over enthusiast i5's & i7's.. They also lend themselves more to parallel architecture involving multi-core & multi-threaded processing..

see this.. http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/workstations/workstation-configurator-tool.html

The second imp point of a video editor would be a 30-bit GPU which can display 10-bit (210 colors), like the NVIDIA Quadro or the AMD Firepro, that have native support for 30 bit output. {10-bit each for the Primary RED/GREEN/BLUE -- 3X10=30}

What is a 30 Bit Photography Workflow?

I'd recommend:

A more robust workstation would cost you around $2-3 K but the above E3-1275 V5 won't be any slouch either.. about 60-70 % performance of a 3k, I'd say..

OR....  If u are into casual video editing..

You could even reduce the GTX 960 to a GTX 950 or even a 750 Ti..
