Okay, but first, what are you working with right now? Do you need a monitor included in your rig, or do you have one? What's the resolution you have/your desired resolution? How big do you want your monitor to be (if you need one)? Will you also need a keyboard and mouse? Gimme some more info and I can whip something up.

I need a monitor, i have a keyboard and mouse. Res preferably FHD 1920 x 1080 but ONLY if that's a resolution you'd recommend, if not, tell me what you DO recommend.

This is looking more into video editing perspective rather than gaming perspective

Looks like someone got to it before me, but this is pretty much what I was going to recommend. Really solid build all-around.

When i set this up am i going to want to over clock anything or do anything extra other than just put it together?

Better use of funds for slightly less. You get a better gpu, and a fully modular power supply for 50 bucks less:

Am i overclocking anything in this scenario?

the power supply is in case you are overclocking yes, in fact it would probably be enough not only for overclocking but having two cards while overclocking. According to hardocp, 2 overclocked 290x (which consume more power than 290s) will hit 833w load. The 290s will be a bit less, if I had to guess around the 775W range.

i literally just gave these two to another person on a different thread, take a look.

Which build would you recommend personally? I see that the AMD build's processor is quite a bit higher in terms of GHz. What abgout a CD/DVD drive? Any run of the mill one works i suppose?

an optical drive is up to you, whether you want it to be able to play blu-ray, write dvd's/cd's and what not is up to you.

the amd build does have a beefier cpu but it does not meet the 4770K at its stock clock. overclocking it to around 5ghz will give you the same performance as the 4770K and the 4 more cores will help in any rendering you ever do. hyperthreading is nice and all, but the more cores the better lol.

so personally i would chose the amd build. its got plenty of room to expand if you ever choose to and its more powerful when you overclock it.

Am i good to overclock the gpu and motherboard here? Im not really sure how to do any of that but i know it has something to do with balancing the frequencies and multipliers or something along those lines. If i choose to overclock the cpu am i most likely going to overclock the gpu or the motherboard?

you cant overclock a mobo. most gpu's come with software that will let you just unlock the card and set simple overclock settings. but yes the mobo does support overclocking, so you can overclock the cpu to around 5ghz and the gpu to whatever you feel like it running at.
