Help on a new build for video editting please :)

Hi guys been reading this forum for half a year and this is my first post. I need some advice regarding my first (educated) build. I need a rig for light video editing using premier pro, about 10 minute long video clips, also adding a few animated effects using after effects. That aside, a want a system I can probably upgrade in the future and overclock. I'll also use it in programing with sql, android studio and Ms visual studio

I'm thinking
Mobo: msi z97 mpower max ac/z97 gamer 7
Cpu: 4690k/4690k
Psu: seasonic s12ii bronze 620
Ram: ripjaws 1600 (12800cl9d) 2 X 4
Hdd: 500gb wd caviar blue

At the moment i plan to use stock cpu cooler. Would this build be sufficient enough for my needs? I do plan to upgrade the cpu cooler with a closed loop cooler but probably in a few months from now since I'm running low on funds. Also any recommended upgrades or future upgrade suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Btw: I'm in the Philippines so I'll be getting most of my parts from pcx.com.ph

  1. if u are not planning on buying a GPU then 620 watt psu is a waste of money get a 400 watt psu instead and buy a good af cooler and oc the cpu ....
    also i would recommend an ssd as it will realy help u in fast loading and saving....
  2. I'm kinda hoping I could add a video card in the future, that's why I wanted a 620w psu. I'm also looking at a closed loop cooler, probably a h100i. Probably buy those upgrades by December :). The ssd was a great idea, I'll try to fit that in my budget. Will an i5 lag too much behind the i7 for my purpose? I'm in a pinch since I'll be doing the video editing before I upgrade with the video card and after market cooler by December.

    for rendering i7 is far ahead from i5 but if u are into moderate rendering then i5 would be fine and if u are not into heavy gaming and dont mind playing games at medium to high settings then u can get a gtx 750 in your future upgrade and still the 620 watt psu would be overkill unless u get a r9 280x or gtx 770.....i am just saying so because u have a limited budget so the extra money u save u can put into other stuff ...
  4. I really appreciate the help, so it's better to take seasonic s12ii 520. Regarding cpu, I'll be doing roughly a ten minute clip. It's actually just adding some sort of overlay on another movie, kinda like adding animated speech bubbles on a video. Should I take the i7 just to be sure? Also I'm still torn between mpower and gaming 7?
  5. well for small rendering work like that u will fine with the i5 i7 would be obviously a better choice but it cost lot more.....and for mother i dont really trust MSi board for past bad experience ........so i will recommend u these boards...

  6. Those gigabytes are not available where I'm at, so we're leaning towards asus then. Is the z97 pro wifi (we don't have the non wifi version here) a good overclocking board or would I be better off with mark 2? Aside from the wifi of the pro, is it better than the mark 2? I plan to overclock by December :) (Christmas bonus yay)
  7. well going for the z97 pro wi fi ac would be a better choice here is a comparison table.....http://www.asus.com/us/site/motherboards/Z97/comparison/
  8. So here's my tentative build

    Mobo: Asrock z97 extreme 4 (the asus z97-pro was sold out at the moment, not sure if they will have the stock by next week, this is what the salesman offered me)
    Cpu: 4790k
    Cooler: Stock
    Psu: seasonic s12ii bronze 520
    Ram: ripjaws 1600 (12800cl9d) 2 X 4
    Hdd: 500gb wd caviar blue
    Case: Thermaltake V4 Black

    Note: they are also selling Asus Z97-a, would this be better than the asrock? The extreme 4 won awards here at Tomshardware

    Then by December

    Mobo: Asrock z97 extreme 4
    Cpu: 4790k
    Cooler: CoolerMaster Seidon 120m/Thermaltake Water 3.0 Performer
    Psu: seasonic s12ii bronze 520
    Ram: ripjaws 1600 (12800cl9d) 2 X 4
    Hdd: 500gb wd caviar blue
    Ssd: Samsung Evo 840 evo 120gb
    Case: Thermaltake V4 Black
    GPU: ASUS GTX750TI 2GB DDR5 128BIT (GTX750TI-OC-2GD5) video card

    What do you guys think? any suggestions?
  9. well if u are buying the 500 gb hdd then dont the 1 tb hdd cost only 5-6 $ more....
  10. It's actually an old Hdd same as an old case I already have. So just the Mobo, cpu, psu, and ram will be bought in the first round.
  11. ohh i see..
  12. I think it is related but

    What is the benefit of using an AMD R9 290X over say am Nvidia 880M

    Unfortunately this only focuses on games testing , the original question was over video editing, as far as i know.

    as long as your chosen software supports both Nvidias CUDA , and AMDs Open CL then both should work with a you tube video showing that Open CL has a slight , but very slight advantage over the Nvidia offering , weather this is down to card design or not i cannot say

    the originator did ask about video editing not games

    i dont understand why you are bringing the 880 m here its a laptop based GPU and the gtx 800 series have been cancelled and instead of then the gtx 900 series is going to launch next month .
  15. Drooling for high end graphics card. Although i think ill be going with GTX 750ti as prit87 suggested since that's all my budget could afford probably. I don't play that often anyway, and I don't think i can afford a video card that's actually going to have a noticeable performance boost for video editing.
