New Build for Video Editing Tags: Homebuilt Video Editing Systems Last response: August 25, 2010 3:01 AM in Systems Share stking August 23, 2010 4:16:40 PM My dad wants a new computer as his current is really old his new interest in video editing is taking days on his current 5 year old pc. I've put together a few parts and I was just wondering if you guys think this would work and be a good build. He plans to use it mainly for editing videos and watching 1080p videos.

More about : build video editing Finchee August 23, 2010 9:15:56 PM What video editing software is he going to use? And if you're not limited by a set budget, you could probably go higher. The Phenom II X4 965 BE scored well on the Adobe Premiere Pro benchmarks. Ram... you might want to go 8gb or more. I remember reading the documentation for Adobe Premiere saying it recommends 16gb of RAM >_< And if you could get a 10,000 rpm hard drive, sata 6gb/s, that would be great. Not sure if this works for the best, I too am looking to build a new pc that will be used for gaming and video editing. Hope someone else can shed some light on this. stking August 24, 2010 3:29:24 PM I'm not totally sure what he uses to be honest. He says he doesn't want to spend more than about 400-450 pounds. I'll check out the Phenom II x4 965 as well as the extra ram...although I dont think i'll have much left in his budget lol Can't find your answer ? Ask !
