Within the last year, my video editing hobby has led to many paid professional projects. Since I'm starting to shoot more and more paid videos, I need to be able to edit much more efficiently.
This will be my first build. I understand Haswell-e is about to be released and will be a significant upgrade, but I have to upgrade from my dying 5 yr old ASAP because I've got projects that need to be finished. On top of that, the 5930k and DDR4 RAM will unfortunately be out of my price range.
I really don't want to spend any more, since my original budget was $2000. What are your thoughts on this build? Are there any places I can cut costs any more? Will I need any other parts like extra case fans or anything else?
*The reason I chose 3 1TB HDDs is because I need multiple HDDs for my workflow setup
I appreciate any help you can provide.
