Buying a computer for video editing?

Need to purchase a 16” MacBook Pro soon. Unfortunately I’m not able to wait for Apple Silicon with the 2021 redesign.

For video editing, what’s more important or at least what should be upgraded first? The graphics, processor or memory?

I’ll be working with typically 3 streams of 4K 30fps video in Final Cut Pro. Many third party effects and color correcting goes into my projects. 

I’m looking into the base model which starts @ $2,400. I can’t go above a subtotal of $2,900. 

Upgrading just the RAM from 16 to 32GB is $400 which almost hits my limit. Any advice?
