Building a computer for Editing purposes

Hello,
Im in the search of getting a computer and I came across building my own, Ive considered it before. however I thought it was more for gamers. Im a Video editor and I wanted to make a computer that fits my needs. I need it to run monster files and high quality images without any lag on the footage. what areas do you think I should look into when I consider my custom PC?

Thank You

  1. What is your budget?

    You're lookig to gt an i7 just so you know. The rest will be fit to bufet
  2. If you're looking for a computer that can do hard-core editing, you need a good processor, preferably one that can handle multitasking very well.

    Your graphics card does matter, but it shouldn't have to be that high-end. If you are on a budget, go for the Radeon HD 7750. If you are going to game a little bit and want a performance boost, try the 7770. Both are great for the price.

    You will need a lot of RAM if you are editing like crazy. Preferably 12-16 GB of DDR3 1600+ RAM is good enough.
