Video Editing Build

Hello, I'm quite a noob so I need some help here. Firstly, I want to run programs like adode, which I heard is pretty graphically intensive. Does this mean that I should buy a good graphics card? Secondly, I would want to edit and render videos on this new comp more quickly. Are these kinds of multi-threaded programmes cpu intensive or gpu intensive, or both? Would getting more ram help as well? Thanks.

  1. Typically video editing is more CPU dependent but some software does have GPU accelerated rendering.

    CPU: On applications, like video editing, where high memory bandwidth or extreme ends on PCI-e bandwidth are heavily multi-threaded jobs the newer 2011 sockets will perform slightly better than the older 1155 sockets.

    This would mean the i7 3820 3930K 3960x.

    and a 2011 MOB

    MOB: Of course if you were to go that route you would also want a LGA 2011 MOB like ASRock X79 Extreme4

    These are higher end buys but I don't really know what kind of budget you are talking. They will give you the best video editing possibility for CPU/MOB though difference would not be a drastic step for LGA 1155.

    In terms of a GPU this link goes into depth in the discussion of what you are looking for in a GPU with video editing. Some of it really depends on what program you are planning on using.
