Watching Phelous, Building a list

Hello,

Full Disclosure: This is my first venture into hardware. I have not bought any computer parts that were not RAM/Ext HD/mouse&keyboard.

What I would use the computer for: minimal gaming, amateur video editing and production, amateur music editing and production, frequent open source software testing (I test/explore open source software all the time! I currently have ~20 programs open from video editing software to a text-adventure game creator). I plan on booting multiple OSes.

Based on the previous description, I realize my build may look a little overzealous; however, I plan on increasing my video/music production to a more professional level and would at least like a machine I can use as an all encompassing media station (4k+ video streaming and rendering if possible).

Please feel free to criticize (constructively or invectively)! I appreciate any of it. Let me know if I am completely off my mark here.

You seriously need Help..

First off give a MAX Budget..

Do you need Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Speakers, Headphones, or things of that nature, or are we just going to Focus on the Computer itself ?

Also, What Video Editing software do you Use. And is it more CPU or GPU intensive or a Nice Even mixture of both ?

No. Just computer itself.

I have access to all peripherals.

Max budget is $1500, but I would like to keep it closer to $1000. What specifically do I need help on?

Thanks for the answer.

Aw, man.

I thought I was ready to throw down with the big boys! Based on the answers so far, it looks like I am better off lurking more and coming back with another try at a later time.

Thanks for the answer, my friend.

Being realistic 4K is a bit out of the price range.. BUT, this should get into 1440p very nicely..
