So I need to finally upgrade my old pc and have been out of the custom building world for over 5 years. Use to do it when I was younger but am not update with the new boards and cpus etc. out there.
Want to build a rig that can withstand me editing large res gopro action footage and already have a few parts. I know editing requires a lot of ram and cpu power so that are my too big concerns and also possibly staying with a smaller form factor if possible like mini itx. Standard would be fine but don't want a huge gamin tower that's blasting away. So I am looking for some recommendations from you guys. Here is what I have so far:
4. Optical drive
2. CPU - (Like the Intel Core i5-3570K for $190)
3. Ram - 16 gigs
1. Editing of hi-res gopro footage in Adobe Suite
2. Want a smaller tower if price of components doesn't change dramatically $$$
So I am thinking $500 should get me a pretty decent setup but should I wait for the new processors to come out his spring?
Going off pcpartspicker it looks like I should easily be in range. Intel better then AMD when it comes it editing? I don't have a preference and will not be overclocking on this system.
