I was gonna go with an AMD build do but since I do video editing and you want a Rig for video editing as well, Nvidia Cards are the best for the reason I already mentioned above. I dont know the technical aspect of it but heres the thing:
AMD- OpenCL hardware acceleration
Nvidia- Cuda Core acceleration
Video Editing programs like Vegas Pro and Adobe Premier Pro make use of the CUDA acceleration and help reduce the render time. This helps to reduce the load on CPU. OpenCL is currently not supported by a majority of programs.
