I've been tasked with assembling or purchasing a new video editing workstation capable of injesting Uncompressed HD content from our 3 camera studio, "sweetening" it (color correction, audio tweaks,etc.), bundling in pre-made 2D graphics and animations, and rendering out multiple delivery formats [b]in under twelve hours[/b]. The system would normally only be dealing with a single (switched) live feed. Content length is 40 minutes to 1 hour.
I hope to order the parts for this system by Friday. My budget ceiling (for hardware) is 5000 USD (I am currently $50 over). I don't "plan" to overclock (I don't own the rig) but might revisit six months out or so (once the system has been running stable for awhile).
Software being used (all CS5 in order of usage): Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Encore, Soundbooth, Encore, Illustrator, InDesign, Bridge.
OS: Win7 64 Ultimate.

I'm a bit worried about heat sink/mobo/processor/case compatibility. Also looking for ways to trim w/o compromising the timetable mentioned above. I've spent a bit of time researching these parts. I'm looking to those more knowledgeable to point out any conflicts and any "hey, you forgot X". Alternate component suggestions are also welcome but vague "their better" reasoning won't carry any weight.
ADDITIONAL HARDWARE ON-SITE:
Blackmagic Multibridge Pro (for interfacing with studio) PCI-E 4x break out box
16TB (max, currently 2TB mirrored) NAS for archiving video assets (connected via dual 10/100/1000 ethernet)
Multiple Calibrated NTSC CRT Monitors and large format LCDs for review
Thank you all in advance,
