of the parts I have right now anything is up in the air but I would like the GPU to have four GB and I would also like to have a gold rated power supply. The biggest things I think I need help on or the motherboard and storage. I'm open to anything right now because you guys have way more experienced than me and the biggest thing I would like to stress and this is him first-time PC builder so would like everything to work right away and be reliable.
in the future I have some upgrades in mind first I would like to upgrade the RAM to at least 16 gigs but for the right now second would be to have a bigger hard drive third would be to put a blue Ray player in it and would eventually be to put a Intel Xeon E3-1231 V3 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor

The Xeon is fine for what you are doing even for gaming cause I own one myself. You don't want a Z series motherboard for a locked cpu which is basically throwing money away. I have managed to get yourself a decent gpu that has 4gbs of ram and you can grab an OS dirt cheap online....... ( I am not responsible of what anything happens if you go that route.).
Heres what I would say
-Buy a cheaper motherboard. (your not going to overclock either a xeon or an i5 4460).
-Buy a cheaper power supply. (you don't want to skimp, but $80 seems overkill.
-Buy your copy of windows resold on reddit for like $15
-Either use the extra money to get a xeon, or just get an 8350. (i5 will outperform it, but paired with a 960 the 8350 is fine).
how do you buy one on Reddit i never use Reddit.i need the power supply to be gold certified. thank you for the help :)
The GPU need to be from Nvidia because it works better with it cuda cores works better with adobe aft effects Adobe premiere and that is the editing software i will be using. is the micro atx hard to work with i have big hands and i think a atx board would be better than a micro atx board
Premiere and AfterEffects work quite well with OpenCL and the AMD cards.
In either case, you won't really see a major boost in performance with 4k video using either CUDA or OpenCL until you have a really BEEFY card. Like a Quadro or FirePro.
As for 1080p video, I cut my render times in half with an AMD 280x
that is nice to now thank you
