4k Video editing, non-gaming pc thoughts on this choice and vendor?

On a limited budget (approx 1700 UK pounds) so while I know it is possible to construct a monster editing powerhouse rig from the ground up, it is just not fiscally right for me at this time. Came across this setup and wanted to get some expert opinions on the specs. Has the Ryzen 7 1800X processor that I was looking for as well as the standard Nvidia 1070 graphics card. Would think I would upgrade the storage HDD at some point as well as taking the memory up to 32gb, but for a start will this get me going. Little fuzzy on the other components (Motherboard, power supply etc...) if they are sufficient. My main concern is lagging in editing and when adding effects, I suspect the render times may be a bit on the slow side, but I can live with that as long as it isn't hours +, it's just the choppy, lagging I have to currently put up with drives me nuts. Finally, has anyone bought from DinoPC in the UK? Seem to have fairly good reviews, a few negatives, but there is always going to be that with any supplier and they seem to have been resolved satisfactorily. Thank you in advance for your opinions and suggestions.

    Looks pretty good. Make sure the PSU is the right Corsair variant... cxm/rmx, looks good otherwise.
    If you put in another 100quid, here is what you can build yourself. More RAM/SSD, slightly better board and psu.

  2. For video rendering i like this build but id get faster ram since the ryzen favors fast ram and get 32gb 8x4gb 3000mhz or faster if ts not in budget dop the cpu 1 step (will still be more than enough)
  3. Thanks, guys, that's the part I was a little hazy about the motherboard and power supply unit. I'm not that knowledgeable on hardware, just really picked up some learning on CPU's and GPU's in the past couple of weeks, so I thought those items that came with this were pretty good and I could fine tune the rest. So from your thoughts, I should make sure the power supply is a variant of Corsair cxm/rmx (I'll have to research what that means) and 32 gbs of faster ram. I take it that that mean this part of the memory description 'DDR4 2666mhz' is not very quick, so I'm looking for 3000MHz. I will look into the specs you provided Hellfire and see how that works within the funds allocated, suppose I can find another 100 to play with. Hellfire 13 and Dorkarts Gaming, I can't thank you enough for your wisdom on this, it is very much appreciated.

    The CXM you are talking about is the old(Green Label) model. It has been upgraded with better parts all over and launched fresh last year. The new units have While Label on them and is a high quality unit often recommended by experts in this community.
    Moreover that Tier list is old and got a few flaws too. Although it is good for loose reference, it is not precisely accurate.

    I have already included all quality parts in the list including higher channel RAM. If you can stretch your budget a bit, you can go for that list anytime.
    And, you are welcome. :)
