Advice on Professional Video Editing Hardware, JAN 2012

Hey all wonderful experts,

I'm looking for some advice to build a computer suitable for professional video editing.
The issues that makes me particularly dizzy are combining...
- CPU
- MOBO
- Video Cards (e.g Geforce, BlackMagic, etc)
...into something that don't stumbles into any face-palm bottle-necks.


Approximate Purchase Date:
- Ready to buy


Budget Range:
The budget for the whole computer, including a decent case + PSU is about...
- ~2200 USD
- ~1400 GBP
- ~15000 SEK
(As time saved is money earned, I'm very flexible here... But don't wish to be foolish nor cheap)


System Usage from Most to Least Important:
- Video editing
- Encoding
- Game recording(Read Gaming)


Parts Not Required:
- Keyboard
- Mouse
- Monitor
- Speakers


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: (e.g.: newegg.com, ncix.com -- to show us selection & pricing)
Doesn't really matter, if it's good I will get it from wherever I can. Though my normal "go-to" sites are:
www.inet.se
www.webhallen.se
www.dustin.se

Country:
- Sweden


Parts Preferences:
- Preferably not ATI/AMD, as I have never had a good experience with them.


Overclocking:
- Probably


SLI or Crossfire:
- Perhaps SLI...
Seems it wouldn't do much though, except for getting FPS up for the recording-part.


Monitor Resolution:
- 1920x1080


Additional Comments:
- MOBO should support RAID 0
- MOBO should have at least 6 SATA connectors (1 system SSD, 4 RAID0 HDD, 1 Bluray writer)
