Gaming pc / 1080p editing - 4k editing in the future

Tylcleaner
  • 53 months ago

I have built one gaming computer before, but didn't do research before hand. Therefore, I didn't realize how little I knew.

Budget: $1500 Location: USA Use: Gaming/1080p Video Editing - hopefully 4k in the future Peripherals required: Mouse/Keyboard/Monitor all needed Operating System required: Windows 7 or 10 whatever you think is better

Games I will be playing: Fallout 4, GTA V

I do not have the funds nor do I think it would be wise to build such an expensive computer for 4k editing at this point. However I recently got a HERO 4 Black and would love to do some light editing on some 4k res 30fps videos in the future. So parts geared towards future upgrades are welcome.

Preferences: OS on it's own SSD for fast booting Large cases are nice to work with!

Open to any and all thoughts on this.

I appreciate any help. Thanks!

By 1440p you mean the resolution of that monitor correct? Any advantages of that over the 1080p?

Better quality images and you can push the Monitor above 24"

The Haswell-E build below is certainly worth considering.

Should be able to keep this for a while. When you want to get into 4k stuff it will be pretty easy you just have to choose what to do first after getting a 4k monitor. Could throw another gpu in for gaming, or more ram in for video stuff (much cheaper)

Thanks! Once making that decision to upgrade to 4k is the biggest thing just going to be the RAM as you mentioned? Or are there other improvements in general that should be considered when making that jump?

it depends on what you do really. Video editing and heavy multitasking really depend on having a lot of ram, but crossfiring the 390x is key for high quality gaming at 4k

just make sure to match your ram up properly (very easy to do, google when you decide to get more)

Would y'all suggest getting 2 hard drives each in a raid 0 setting? Also, how much space do you actually need for the OS on the SSD?

  • 53 months ago

SSDs in RAID 0 are feckin fast. W10 64-bit takes about 40GB iirc.

I was looking at doing that more for two or more HDD drives. The SSD just seem to expensive to have any decent amount of memory running on a Raid 0 setting

Read online that a fresh install of windows 10 64bit is 20g, so i though a 32g was plenty for updates and stuff

Just confirmed the size online on their website - it says 20GB. Thank you!

Get to 1600 here... 1080p gaming at high setting for sure with gtx 970 strix And i7 5820k for better video editing 16gb of ram because I found that better in video editing in my personal opinion (I am doing photo editing) Fractal Design S are meant for large spaces for cable management and great airflow also pretty quiet. You can buy Fractal Design S with window for extra few dollars if you want to. MX200 SSD because personally I think it is a reliable SSD for me
