Primarily for editing 20-30 minute 4k Videos

Hello all!

I'm looking to build a rig that will be primarily for editing 4K video with total run times when finished of 20-30min (not sure if that's entirely important). I also do some gaming but am not as concerned about gaming in 4K just want something that allows me to go through 4K video I need to edit (being able to play new games on decent settings is enough for me!). I don't need a monitor, mouse or keyboard. Will need Windows 10.

Budget I'm eyeing would be sub 3000$ Canadian (about 2200 USD right now)

I'm in Ontario, Canada.

I'm pretty new to this and trying to learn, figured some advice will be useful. Thanks!

No monitor? No problem: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/dionisios/saved/#view=VTm9TW

You need lots of RAM and lots of CPU cores and LOTS of cheap disk space...feel free to add another 3 or 4 TB HDD.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Just curious since this is well under my budget what things would be upgrade able for even better performance?

If you don't mind the cost, I'd grab a 980TI GPU for 1440p at 60fps gaming on ultra settings.

What about for specifically video editing/workflow?

I'm not sure what software you plan to run, but I would budget the cost for that as well- like Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Photoshop at a minimum. How are you capturing the footage?

The footage is 4k Raw from a Black Magic Production 4K,

Here's a good red/black build that would suit your needs. It has plenty of upgrade paths and sacrifices little while improving aesthetics. It can upgrade to better enterprise 10-18 core processors when businesses begin upgrading down the road, can easily fit 2 more 980 ti's for 3 way SLI and has 4 open ram slots with a max of 128 gb. The motherboard bios is excellent and has manual overclocking and preselected overclocks for different processors. It overclocks this processor at 4.4 ghz at 1.308 volts stable. If you need an optical drive you will need a different case but in this case I would use the radiator in an exhaust configuration with the two 120mm fans I selected. They have a much higher cfm and well they just look cool. Also replace the back fan with the 140mm. This config will cause negative air pressure in the case so the front fans should eventually be replaced with better fans when budget allows. This works as a great 4k video editing workstation and will play all current high end games on a 1440 120+hz on ultra rarely dipping below 90fps. Sorry its all US links but it should give you a good place to start. Good luck. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

The fans I selected are not the best by any means. They have great cfm but only ok static pressure at like 1.2. If you want to spend more you can find fans with slightly lower cfm but 4 or 5 times the static pressure which helps keep the fan at speed with resistance from the slowed air in the radiators. Just fyi if you didnt know.
