BUDGET $1400. Really need some Help. PC BUILD for fast rendering in adobe suite and video editing. STREAMING PC

I been trying to come do a decision on this PC for a while now, I need help. I have a budget of $1400. This PC is going to be used for editing video through after effects and premiere. And streaming. Also lots of graphics on Photoshop and Illustrator. I want somethings that is going to run fast, especially rendering. Eventually I would like dual monitors but for now if 1 monitor can be included to this list I would like it to be a 24 inch or bigger. As long as the pc meets the budget im willing to let the monitor make it over budget a little.

    THIS SHOULD DO WHAT YOU NEED.

    3.5 GHz Xeon processor tied to a GTX 1070 with a 25" 4ms IPS screen at 1440p
    512 GB M2 SSD (currently on sale!) and a large standard drive. I couldn;t quite swing a second SSD, but it would be a likely upgrade.

    Would I be able to just buy a second Sandisk X400 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive?
  3. I would get the 6700k it's only 30$ more and out of the box it has .5GHZ ahead of the Xeon and has a unlocked Multiplier. Unless you have a need for ECC ram that is.

    It was on sale over the July 4th Holiday for 300$ on Ebay.

    I don't think the 1150 Xeons use ECC RAM anymore. But don't quote me on that.
  5. the board I listed uses both regular and ecc
  6. Something like this would be good, but I'll have to do more research on the monitor:

  8. g-unit: you need to include a monitor. ytheres a reason I went with an Xeon E3 instead of E5

    Oh yeah I usually don't include monitors because I always feel that's more of a personal preference thing, and especially people in the design world are particularly picky about the displays they choose.

    Do I need a disk drive to install the OS?

    For Windows 10 you don't since it ships on a USB flash drive, but any other version of Windows you do.
  12. if you just need it to install an OS, cannibalize one from an older PC. However, the Skylake processor in the best answer build will run better in 10 than 7 or 8.1
  13. Your video editing and streaming would benefit from a 6 core processor. If you want a 4 core processor for Photoshop, the i7 6700K would be your best best as jtk2515 noted.

    the Xeon + C232 board saves over $100 over a 6700K + Z170

    True, but it's significantly slower. Maybe the 6700K is too expensive for this build, though. The 6 core is really where he should be anyway as video editing and streaming are the primary uses.
