At your budget, for Audio & Video Editing, AMD FX 8 Core CPU are the best choice.

Get the following:-

AMD FX 8150 @ 11.4K
Gigabyte 970A-DS3 @ 5.5K
Corair Value Select 4GB X1 1333 MHz @ 1.04K
MSI HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 @ 8.2k

@Cilus
The board you suggested doesnot support FX8150

I would suggest you to buy GA970A-UD3 rather. I made the same mistake buying DS3.

People seem to be having trouble with the GA970A-UD3 bios too. Please suggest a board that is confirmed working with the proccy.

And as for GFX card I prefer AMD Normally , but my experience has shown that Nvidia cards outperform the radeons when it comes to Video editing and rendering. and I'm sure its not just my experience.
as for graphics it boils down to GT/GTX vs Quadro 600.
Note : Avid Recommends Quadro 2000 or higher.

Got a UD3(rev 3.0) for my friend and it runs 8150 perfectly. Mine Ds3(rev3.0) gives the first screen and then reboots while on 8120 it works fine.
Remember to get the latest revision of the board from market
