uses gaming at 1080p(ultra) video editing of the footage and general video editing i already have a 1080p monitor and keyboard and mouse i have a donor hdd with win10 on currently i use a i7-4700MQ which clocks to 2.7-2.8ghz when saving/loading videos on windows movie maker, waiting to get another video editing software at somepoint 16gb ram 128gb corsair flashdrive 'temporary load/storage/save drive' 1tb sshd

the cpu is at 100% i experience system wide slow downs when loading video rendering times are not as important to me. thanks :)

will moderatley overclock but liquid cooling is preferable looking at the new swiftech expandable aio 360 or the largest rad they do

Caveat: a 1080p on this build is an insult to the GPU:

im quite aware of it being overkill for 1080p but i want smoothness no matter :P

The extra cores of the 5820k vs the 6700k does wonders for video editing and rendering. It can be easily overclocked to 4.4ghz. The 390x is enough to game on high-ultra on the monitor I threw in there. You could go with 32 gb of ram which will also help in editing but I would start with 16gb and see how it goes. Just make sure you get the same ram if you do upgrade. The power supply is amazing. Its not color coordinated so I got the windowless nzxt 210 because that just irks me but you could splurge on a better case though I have used the 210 and do like it a lot. It doesnt have support for large radiators if you go with water cooling. Good luck.PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
