Hey I am wondering what your opinion is on this part list. The two SSDs are for a RAID 0 setup for my OS and temporary project files. The PC is mainly for video editing/encoding but I will play some games on it. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!

[REVISED] (Changed PSU, Added speakers, changed monitor, added vesa adapter)

Change the PSU to the G2 version and you're good. The one you have is low quality.

Just so you know the G2 750w should be only $5 more at $99, in case you want a little extra power.

great parts list. It will work great. Only suggestions I have are

1) getting an EVGA g2 or a Corsair RMx powersupply instead of that one. Same price (and sometimes less depending when you buy it, ive seen them go down to the 70s and 80s) and better quality. The one you have is decent, but you could be paying the same price for a near perfect psu (the evga g2 and corsair rmx have pretty much perfect scores).

2) For video editing the 144hz wont help you much. You are much better off going for a higher res and/or IPS. That'll give you better detail and color accuracy.

Ok thanks. I was originally going to get a 29:9 aspect ratio monitor however I decided that it would be nice to have one for Premiere and another for After Effects or Audition. I had a little extra money to blow so I figured I would get a 144hz monitor for gaming. If you can find a better monitor please don't hesitate to tell me.

If you like the ultrawide look heres a great monitor http://pcpartpicker.com/product/wNcMnQ/lg-monitor-25um58p : 25", 1080p, 21:9, 75Hz, IPS and $200. Which means you could get two of these!

or you could go a different route and get two 1440p monitors. you lose the ultrawide but get higher res http://pcpartpicker.com/product/D7hj4D/acer-monitor-umkg7aa002

(for the ultrawide monitors you can split them into multiple virtual monitors, so you could easily split the two of them into 4 monitors (or more) http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-25UM58-P-ultrawide-monitor scroll through the page to see the options they have for that coolness)

OK. Most of my editing I'm going is 1080p up sampled to 4k (sometimes). Which one do you think is better?

  • 38 months ago

I have no idea. Both are great options. If you wanted to do upgrade to 1440p editing then go with the 1440p monitors. But the widescreens look pretty nice as well (at 1080p but still). Plus they are 75hz vs the 1440p monitors are 60.

I think I'm leaning toward the 1440p monitor due to the resolution and the lack of desk space i have lol. Thanks so much for your input!
