$1000 Video Editing Computer

So I was asked by an employee to make a budget video editing computer for 1024 resolution. My first thought was good CPU and ok GPU. I know when editing videos 16GB of RAM is the sweet spot, and anything above it will allow for you to work on the computer while it is rendering the video. He was also wanting 500 GB of SSD, For his OS, Programs, and active videos. His color scheme is blue. He has 4TB in 5400 RPM HDD that he want's to connect up to this new system.

i'd recommend maybe going for a 550watt gold psu instead of a 650watt bronze or maybe go for 16gb of ram and get a better psu like a 650watt gold just i wouldn't recommend a psu like that for anything more than a 600$ build

What's the difference between a Gold and Bronze certified? Also, after talking to the employee he said he wanted the 32GB of RAM. The main reason was so he can use the computer while it is rendering video.

@mark5916 When you said "There is not such thing as rendering videos. He meant editing videos." it gives me the shivers. When you render a video, that is the last step of the project. Rendering is when you take your edited video and export it into a format that the media player can read. When you edit video, is when you take the raw footage and manipulate them to do what you want.

There was a reason I went on the forms for this, I am not a hardware person. I don't know the benefits of one item to another. I know enough to build a computer if I have parts given, but not enough to be able to pick the parts out that will give you the best bang for your buck.

I know he wants to use Sony Movie Studio for the editing software, and yes I did mean 1024x768. I was trying to type on the go.

Do you think I should upgrade the GPU? I don't think he will be doing any hard core editing, just simple stuff. This is what I currently have:
