Hi Everyone,

I am looking to either build or buy a desktop computer for Video Editing.

Quote: $1866

I also got a quote from someone to build a system for me and the main configurations Include: -CPU: Intel Core I7 6700 -MB: MSI B150M PRO VD -MEMORY: Kingston 16GB DDR4 -SSD: Samsung EVO 250 -HD: Seagate 1 TB -VIDEO CARD: MSI NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB -MONITOR: LG 24MP48HQ-P -KB AND MOUSE: LOGITECH MK 270 Wireless -CASE: GOLDENFIELD MATX CASE -POWER SUPPLY: THERMALTAKE 500W -OS: WINDOWS 10 HOME

Quote: $ 1880

I am new to this so any suggestion would help.

Thanks in advance :)

The Dell prebuilt is an atrocious value. Go with your friend's custom build. Only thing I'd change is the PSU.

Thanks for your response. Would you recommend any specific PSU?

This is a really good value at the moment: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/TgW9TW/seasonic-power-supply-m12ii520bronze

Seasonics are all solid. EVGA B2/G2/P2s are also good units, but I don't think their pricing is stellar at the moment.

The Corsair CXM is at a great price at the moment. Same goes for the RMx
