$1000 Editing and Gaming PC

Fury8793
  • 52 months ago

Hey guys,

I need a good, quality PC that I can edit my GoPro videos on along with being able to game on Ultra Settings. I mainly will be playing Battlefield 4, Red Orchestra and Arma...basically FPS shooters. As for video editing, I'm not sure what programs I will be using but I'd like a PC that can handle my editing needs. My videos will tend to come under the ten minute mark.

Thanks and please provide windows OS and the display, mouse and keyboard don't need to be included.

With mantle updates and DX12 incomming, ide say the good ol FX 8350 is a solid choice still in 2016 and will have longevity with its fast speed, overclocking capabilities and EIGHT EFFING CORES. Plus if your editing, get a decent sized SSD my friend (i picked one). MY BUILD has a 27 inch monitor too (cause im the best ;-0 ) if you can only have 1 monitor, it should be AT LEAST 27 inches for editing. The R9 380 4gb OR a GTX 960 4GB version will be PLENTY of power for 1080p 60hz gaming. The r9 wins the FPS war in some games, the GTX in others..by 5 fps or so. If you want to be POSITIVELY POSITIVE that you can run your games at MAX MAX settings, spend 80 bux more and get a R9 390 instead, but ide say thats overkill at 1080p 60hz gaming because at 60hz your monitor can only display 60 fps. This card will sit around that in ARMA3 with high to max settings, over 70FPS in BF4 with high>very high settings and will completely rape red orchestra at over 200fps im sure (isnt that like a bf4 knockoff broweser game? why are u playing that **** lol) .. As for CSGO and COD, those games are highly optimized and were built to run on AMD systems. You will have no issues.

The NEX is not a good choice, change the PSU for the EVGA GQ 650 and this will be a very good build.

Also that ram with a latency of 11 (that is high....)

I wasn't sure is the NEX psu's were bad, thanks for pointing that out. Also, what is the difference between the Latency, i thought the higher the better because DDR4 comes with 14,15 and 16.

Yes the NEX G1 is the older one (also try avoiding the B1). The good ones are the G2, GQ, GS, B2.....

With ram the lower the latency the better. DDR4 has a higher latency because of the higher speed. At higher speeds, the higher latency helps maintain a more stable system. But with 1600 and 1866 DDR3 you should get one with latency CAS9.

(CL/(Freq-in-MHZ) * 1000) = speed in ns

1600 with latency CAS11

11/800 X 1000 = 13.75 nano seconds

1600 with latency CAS9

9/800 X 1000 = 11.25 nano seconds

Thanks for the explaining, so with DDR4 would it be better to get CAS 14 DDR4?

It depends on the speed. But lower CAS is better which each speed. I would look for a balance as the ones with the lowest are just so expensive. For example with DDR4-2400 there is CAS (16,15,14,13 and 12). Obviously the best one would be CAS12 but its also very expensive (13 is not available). I would just go with CAS14 for DDR4-2400.
