This is a machine I'm building for running video editing applications such as Adobe's Creative Cloud as well as being able to play all the newest games that I hope will survive a good lifespan. The prices listed here total to around $1,600 USD, however, by hunting everything down individually or in bundles and with rebates and deals and so on, my build came well below that number.
This is the first time I've built a computer. I have no previous knowledge about computers until I started to do my research at the beginning of the week, so let me know your thoughts and feedback! Is it going to be able to handle video editing/visual graphics? How long do you think it will handle this next generation of video games? And of course, is it a machine I can be proud of?
My Video editing purposes include Adobe's range of Creative Cloud including, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Illustrator, SpeedGrade. And 3rd party things like Cinema 4D for 3D rendering.
