My Macbook Pro isn't cutting it for editing HD videos from a Hauppauge HD PVR in iMovie. It runs really loud and hot when I'm importing and exporting videos, and it takes several hours for each. So since I was in the process of selecting parts for a gaming PC, I thought it would be a good idea to see if I could also get parts that would make my editing process go faster. Can I get any help? This is what I have picked out, but any suggestions would be appreciated.
I think your build is great for your usage. I'm not sure with the ram, but if your not with that hardcore editing, you'll be fime with 8gb. 3570k would be better for gaming but since your with other usage also, You can have that i7. But if I were you, if I don't go with serious editing and stuffs, I would just go with a 3570k and then upgrade that gpu or get a better case.
