New PC Build primarily for Video editing and minor gaming

Hello, I have a videography company , and currently wanting to upgrade with a pc. We mainly use Adobe premiere pro, adobe after effects, adobe photoshop, adobe Lightroom. what is the best pc build for a 4k editing beast?

  • Do you have a specific budget in mind? Once we know that, we'll be able to get a good idea of what the best build overall would be. As a preliminary recommendation, I think the AMD Ryzen CPUs are going to pretty much be the way to go for you. AMD is the king of workstation and multi-threaded workloads right now.

    So because you want to jump straight into 4k video editing I'm going to assume you have roughly 5k to spend on a system excluding peripherals.  Now for mass storage it's up to you I just included a 7200rpm drive just because for mass storage it's cheaper.  But your main drive is a gen 4 nvme drive to help with transfer speeds and read/write speeds.  The case is also subjective on whether you want a more "professional" looking case, the lancool 2 is just a solid case with plenty of space.  The last thing is the AIO I put in here does have some issues with breaking after like only 6 months.  So perhaps try to find a different AIO, I only put it in there because I absolutely know that one works with threadripper cpu's.  Now if you come back with a much higher budget we can redo some things, but I also left some space on a presumed 5k budget for extra storage.  Now I did the 2080TI just because you can use the hardware enabled encoder in some of these programs I believe and take advantage of the 2080TI but that is most defiantly a spot to drop the price down to something more like a 2070 super or 2080 super and put that extra cash into perhaps more storage or better cooling and fans.  Without a set budget and perhaps some more preferences a more precise build will be tricky.

  • My budget is $1500-$2000 
    excluding monitor 
  • Soon I’ll upgrade but for now anything beats what i currently have. I’m hanging on a thread with a laptop that’s outdated so premiere crashes all the time.

  • That's a solid build overall for sure. If you want to pack in a little more CPU power, you could downgrade to a 2060 Super for your video card and go with a Ryzen 9 3900X, but it's preference at the end of the day. Either combination I think you'd be very happy with.
