$1100 Video Editing PC Build

I do lots of video production work where I edit HD DSLR videos in Adobe Premiere Primarily. I have used a 2011 i5 21.5" iMac in the past, but I want a faster machine. Will the parts I have listed result in a significantly faster machine for my purposes? Also does anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to keep the build under $1,100 (excluding the monitor).

The parts I have so far:

Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor $299.99

ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard $104.99

Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $67.99

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $73.75

Intel 520 Series Cherryville 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk $119.95

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 2GB Video Card $149.99

Antec Twelve Hundred V3 ATX Full Tower Case $119.99

Raidmax 530W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply $38.93

This ends up costing around $1,100 and it seems to me like it would be much faster than my current iMac for editing HD video on Adobe programs. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

  1. Looks solid man, I'd have to say, drop the Intel SSD. They're not very good well... There good, but just not as good as Samsung 830/840's or Crucial M4s.

    Cheaper and better.

    Drop that garbage PSU, switch to this one and it'll be much better:

    Would this machine be considerably faster for video editing than the machine I have now?
  3. ? I didn't reccomend a whole build. I meant that you should just change the SSD and PSU. So essentially there wouldn't be a real world change, but the PSU will supply a more consistant power output as well as saving you a slight amount on your energy bill from the random spikes of not so hot PSus.

    As for the SSD, it'll be faster in benchmarks, realworld performance isn't any different but you're saving money for a faster SSD so why not righT?

    No, I mean would my entire build (what I picked combined with what you suggested) be much better than my current i5 2011 imac?
  5. OHhhh, yeah it'd be MUCH MUCH better, I can guarantee it.
  6. Folks, I built this PSC and I dont see the BIOS screen to get started. Are you sure the memory is compatible. Corsair site says it is not?
