Hi Experts,

I am fresh to the forum and have signed up few minutes ago. To be precise, I am building a new system for my brother who is an entry level photo-video editor. All the rendering work, he is doing, is focused over Adobe Photoshop & After Effects.

As I am not a hardware geek and searching many forums to get a best build within the budget of $1000 that can be stretched a bit with $100 or $200. In my knowledge I am at the best place for the solution I am seeking for.
So here is the raw specs -

PC Configuration :-
(1.) Intel i5-4670k
(2.) Asus Z87 Pro MoBo
(3.) Asus Geforce GTX 660 2GB
(4.) Corsair Vengeance Blue - 2 x 8 GB
(5.) Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB
(6.) Cooler Master Hyper 412S
(7.) Corsair CX 600M PSU
(8.) Asus DRW - 24D3ST DVD Burner

I want to add an SSD of 120 GB as well but that's running me out of budget.
I need a best build within this budget that will be enough capable of rendering the hard stuff with Adobe PS & AE especially.
Please help me out to get the best out of it.

Thanks in advance.

Best solution

Hey thanks for your quick assistance and I appreciate your guidance. But I have few queries after going through your configuration.

- Would there be any compatibility issue between the GPU mentioned by you and Windows 8.1 64 bit ?
- And do I need any extra CPU cooler with your configuration ?
