If you don't care about what speeds you save at, do as you are going to do, and make a large drive, but not with F4's please their at 5400rpm, maybe an RE3 and setup a Raid 0.
You were initially going with a huge budget, why not just purchase an i7 980x and 6gb of ram? I'm no pro, so maybe I should just shutup but I'm trying to help as much as I can, sorry if my information is flawed for your purposes
OK, NOW I understand. I think your help is great, pro or not.

F4's are the best for RAID 0, trust me, unless you jump to a SSD RAID setup, F4s are 7200RPM (at least the 320 GB version is) and at a 200GB stripe on each, and in RAID 0, they can pull MEAN write speeds.

Why I'm not buying a 980x(?) b/c it costs a BOAT load. For now, unless someone can find a few quotes on how Cuda truly helps for what I am doing, then I will probably stick with what I'm currently looking at, unless someone else thinks of something.

The GPU is my only worry now, and maybe a GTS 450 is the route I will go, idk.

KEEP THE FEEDBACK COMING, I LOVE TRYING TO LEARN ABOUT ALL THIS STUFF.

OP UPDATED BTW

HOLY CRAP I JUST SAW WHAT GOD AWFUL SCREEN YOU ARE GETTING:
Get this:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/p...9&sku=320-9270
often goes on sale for $250. Being someone that deals with graphics and video editing and you're getting a junk TN panel. BAHHUMBUG. Get this eIPS and be happy. How do I know? I own a TN panel and I'm typing from that very same IPS. I have both side by side in a dual monitor system, so I can tell the differences. let me tell you:
WORTH. EVERY. PENNY.

Go the intel way

Six gay cores vs. 4 perfected architecture cores = Intel win.
If you were on a budget I'd say AMD ALL DA WAY 1075t 199

Without mentioning names, this thread made me chuckle a little

Here's what you should do:
  • Get a cheapo graphic card (or a decent one if you also want to game, of course)
  • Get an Intel CPU (or two).
  • Don't get a SSD. Media is about consistent throughput, not random access. Waiting 16ms more while seeking inside your project won't kill you. Make sure the files you're working on aren't fragmented so you get maximum throughput.
  • Use x264 if you plan to use more than 8 threads. Other encoders will probably fall over and die (i.e. generate output with quality lower than usual or just not utilize so many threads). x264 is the most efficient and high quality encoder out of all encoders for all formats (assuming you're using sane bitrates), and that is not opinion, but scientific fact.
  • From your editor, export to a lossless video and audio format to avoid generation loss, and only then encode with x264 (unless your editor can feed x264 directly).
  • Understand that there is no trick to "best quality". Every video and every encoder (even those that encode to the same format) are different. If you really want quality, then you need to manually tweak some settings for every video, including the bitrate or quality threshold (it isn't particularly difficult to understand how to tweak them, they're mostly just different modes of operation for "smart" algorithms). That said, there are general settings you can use universally which will yield pretty good quality most of the time.
  • If you ask a question that should have a scientific answer and you get a lot of differing answers, then they're probably unsubstantiated opinions - try elsewhere!

Finally, stop posting on OCN and sign up for doom9.org's or doom10.org's forums for advice on this subject. OCN might have a lot of computer enthusiasts, but a lot of computer enthusiasts don't know jack about media. Even forums dedicated to this subject are often full of misinformation, but those two are an exception - most of their members know what they're talking about. As long as you follow the following rule of thumb while asking questions there, you should be fine: don't ask for the best. Describe your situation and goal as best as you can, and others will hopefully present the options you have, with all their pros and cons.
