    $1500 Editing PC.  Help with Build.  Socket 2011 or 1155

      Hello everyone,

       

      I am looking to build a new editing PC this week.  My primary work is with Canon t3i and GoPro video files.  My projects are usually around 15 minutes.  I do a lot of after effects work as well.  A lot of color correction. 

       

      I am wondering if socket 1155 will be okay.  I really don't want to play the higher price for socket 2011 right now.  Here is what I am thinking of building (socket 1155):

      Maybe I should add more RAM, change my video card, or add more storage drives?  BTW, I do have multiple USB 3.0 and Firewire external drives, so if I can use these for editing than I can save money by not having to purchase the drives.

       

      Can someone critique my build?  Thanks
