My buddy asked me to build a computer for him, and its primary purpose is to do video editing on Adobe Premiere Pro with a budget of $500-700.
I usually build systems for gaming so I'm unsure what video editing demands.
I was thinking of doing something similar to the $550 system that this site had an article on with a few changes like maybe Intel instead of AMD, and a larger hard drive.
All the guides I've read from just googling recommend having a video card though I'm not sure why, like I said I don't build computers for video editing, I'm assuming it would be for 3d effects, but I have a 9800 GTX lying around since I replaced it in my own system with 2 ATI 5770s.
My friend is an amateur film-maker who just finished shooting and wants to edit a feature length film, so under those circumstances would this be a good system for that price?
The prices differ from newegg because I get my parts from http://www.ncix.com and they match the lowest price from any other Canadian e-tailer.
^ A video card will only be useful if it would offer add-ons like CUDA which some video editing and rendering apps support, which speeds up the process...
Just check if the apps that he would be using supports such features...If it does, then the 9800GTX would be fine...
As for the rest of the config, if you will be adding a graphics card, then you wont need an 890GX board...get the 870 - GIGABYTE GA-870A-UD3
