Re: Need help picking the right parts for build
$700 - $1700 is a huge range for a budget. You will need to narrow that to get more useful recommendations.
If you're doing video editing and rendering, you need a lot of horsepower. I would go with an i7-4770, K series if you're going to overclock. If you want to get closer to the $700 mark, an FX-8320 would do just fine. It performs very well in heavily threaded workloads.
If you're not gaming, the integrated graphics that the i7 offers will be more than enough.
FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0
