    New build need to trim some stuff to meet my budget...

    wraptors Level 1

      I'm about to build a new NLE machine which will mainly be used with DSLR/EX1R footage. Besides PP I will be using a lot of AE (probably more so then PP). My budget is around 1600 but right now what I have picked out adds up to around 2090. Any suggestions on what I should consider going with to meet my budget? Just not sure what the priority of parts is. Would going sandybridge at this point be cheaper for same perfomance at my budget? Any help is appreciated.
