Hey Guys,

I am looking to build a new machine for photo/video editing as well as other general purpose PC tasks. No gaming.

Budget: <> $750

Location: US

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Photo/Video editing

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Already own this stuff

Operating System required: Win10

This is my first build in a few years, and I just want to get a good gauge of what is the best build for the money.

Thanks..
