Xeon or i7?
What the best Mother Board?

Hello  ChadSeaton
Seems as though no one has any suggestions, we can't really give specifics since building a computer is an individual journey.
What I like you won't?
read the feedback and compare that's what I do.
As for it being built for video editing specific well you could buy over the top and get stuff you don't really need, IMHO

The newer i5 - i7 provides impressive performance.
What's your budget,
Which windows?
Different brands have different opinions as to performance.
If you're savvy don't necessarily have to head for the biggest since good brands can give better performance than quantity.
Also take into consideration that the GPU power consumption can be quite steep.
How much are you prepared for a power increase?
The nvidia  has a better power consumption than the newer ATI after what I read
The Nvidia is also quiet I hate that fan noise as it spins up under workload.
Personally I like the brand gigabyte nvidia

Coincidently I have just finished picking out the parts to my new system have paid $1860.00 dollars Australian for it and they are now assembling it.
I'm in Australia ok.
It will be courier to me next week. Can't wait.
I'll lay out what I picked then maybe you can build on that, there so so many choices/
do you like a Laptop or Desktop
I'll use two examples, one I built for myself and one my son built Laptop, first mine>
 
I took a custom build and modified it to my own preferences, this way I guaranteed compatibility
This was the custom build desktop I used
Model Gigabyte HD7970 Gamer

This is what I modified to>
So starting with a case I like to have lots of grates to allow airflow this is important.
Less heat less stress.
I also prefer lots of the USB in front as well the rear of the tower.

Then there is the PSU I prefer the Antak brand and went with 850w since this guarantees that my system will never exceed 65% max power output of the PSU.
Antec - HCG-850M

case fan
BitFenix - BF-SPRO-120

The motherboard I left as is
Gigabyte - GA-Z87X-UD3H
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4481#ov
CPU
Intel® Core™ i5-4670K Processor
(6M Cache, up to 3.80 GHz)
http://ark.intel.com/products/75048/
ram I settled for 8 gig
G.Skill - F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
http://www.gskill.com/en/product/f3-12800cl9d-8gbxl

I settled for just one card instead of two in SLI,
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 Super Overclocked (Base:1137MHz,Boost:1202MHz), 2048MB (6008MHz) GDDR5, PCI-E 3.0, Dual DVI,
HDMI, Displayport
GeForce GTX 680 vs Geforce GTX 770
http://www.hwcompare.com/14636/geforce-gtx-680-vs-geforce-gtx-770/
I was considering the 770 TI  and the  Amd Radeon
To compare them I use these
Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Ti - AMD Radeon HD 7970 X2 Devil 13
http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=1884&gid2=969&compare=geforce-gtx-770-ti-vs-radeon-hd-7970-x2-devil-13

I also prefer not use use SSD and went with a 500 gig WD Caviar HDD since everything is stored on USB drives and off my system drive
I also bought he windows 7 x 64.

The Laptop my son built, cost around $4000.00 dollars Australian, it is a brand name DEL,
 i7 4800 and upgraded to 32GB ram.
 dual 780M video cards,
4th Generation Intel(R)Core(TM)i7-4800MQ processor (6MB Cache, up to 3.7GHz w/ Intel(R)Turbo Boost)
