So we won the www.Ultrawidefestival.com run by LG, and we're absolutely clueless on where to start on building two computers to fill our set-up with!
We got $10,000 altogether but as theirs two of us we're going to be sharing this on one set-up for our channel! And obviously we're not looking to spend it all on the PCs, so we've decided to budget $5-6k (£3.3-3.95k) on building two gaming computers that are both capable of recording all the gameplay, webcams, audio at once and then be able to edit an export effectively on afterwards.
Regarding peripherals we have a monitor already through LG, but probably get another of the same model for the other comp separately from this budget! So would just be looking for quiet mice an keyboads preferably wireless for both of us to use and then also we don't know if this exist but is there a way/ piece of hardware that letstwo adjacent computers share a folder/ hardrive so we can easily share files when working alongside each other?
Probably use windows 7, or 10 (haven't tried it yet so don't know its effectiveness) as an OS
We're located in London, but the price money is in dollars (don't know the logistics of how this'll work yet.
Another thing to note is that I built a custom PC a couple years back now so any re-use we could have would be good to save !Dollar! What i have ATM is : GTX 650 GC
2x4gb Corsair sticks of Ram
Asus P8Z77-V LX2 Intel Z77 MB
550W XFX PSU
Intel Core i5-3330 3.00GHz
Enermax ETS -T40 TB liquid CPU Cooler
Much appreciated in advance
