My friends in the know say this is where the computer minds play so here I am asking for some of your time and expertise. I will be using this computer for editing videos and not gaming so with that in mind this is what I got so far and yes it is up and running as I am posting on it now. First ever build...Thank you. Sorry it is big to me and fun as HELL! Not sure what order to list so go easy

MSI Z97-G45

i7-4790 3.6 GHZ 8MB Cache, LGA1150

PNY 32GB 4x8GB Quad Channel Memory kit/ DDR3 (now I know should have got DDR5) PC3-17000 2133MHz CAS10

SamaungSSD 850 EVO 500GB

WD NAS 2TB 64MB Cache

Powered by a Thermaltake TR2 600W 

And plenty of room in an Antec P100

 

Just reading a couple of hours today I know where I should have stepped it up but hey in 18 months I get to do it again right? I need to get a graphic card that complements this set up for editing my company videos we shoot on a DSLR and post is all done on CS6. I would like to warp this up and have said card kickin by the weekend. Thank you in advance!

Probably a GTX 980 or a Titan card depending on your budget.

I wonder if an X99 platform with its increased memory limit (64GB) would do better.  If you want to go for that platform, the ASUS X99-A LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 motherboard, a Intel Core i7-5820K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.3GHz LGA 2011-v3 CPU, and one or two packages of Crucial 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 memory.  With the graphics card part of it, which one to get depends on the budget since CS6 can use GPU-accelerated processing.  Many suggest Nvidia cards.  Going from least powerful, and expensive, to most, you can get the EVGA 04G-P4-3966-KR GeForce GTX 960 4GB, EVGA 04G-P4-3975-KR GeForce GTX 970 SSC ACX 2.0+ 4GB, EVGA 04G-P4-2983-KR GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 4GB, and EVGA 06G-P4-4995-KR GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB.

Either of those 960 cards should work.  The GTX 970 is a definite step up in performance.
