  1. Either of the previous builds would be fine, butr if you are building a gaming PC you really should get a gaming monitor, otherwise you might as well be playing on console with a TV. Try this: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($191.59 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Deepcool GAMMAXX 400 Blue 74.34 CFM CPU Cooler ($19.79 @ Amazon) Motherboard: ASRock B450M/AC Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($79.99 @ Newegg) Memory: GeIL EVO POTENZA 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($55.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Crucial P1 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($99.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB CHALLENGER D OC Video Card ($383.98 @ Newegg) Case: CiT F3 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($25.43 @ Amazon) Power Supply: Corsair CX (2017) 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($69.98 @ Amazon) Monitor: Sceptre C305B-200UN 30.0" 2560x1080 200 Hz Monitor ($284.98 @ Newegg) Total: $1211.72 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-01-04 11:45 EST-0500 The motherboard is the same thing as an ASRock Pro4, it sjust has onboard WiFi. I've personally done a couple of builds with that case for friends and its really easy to work with.
  2. 660p is fine. Its actually way faster for gaming than most other SSDs when it can use the intel smart caching. It's a QLC with an SLC cache so it runs about as fast as an SLC drive for gaming and most editing loads.
  3. All things considered, not really, especially for a mobile i7. People having been making huge projects with less for years. The only real difference upgrading will make for premier will be your render times. Any issues you are having with the software itself running slowly is primarily going to be due to running it off of a hard drive, as well as pulling clips into your timelime from said hard drive. I would highly recommend trying the SSD swap before plundering your wallet on a desktop. The laptop is also nice because you can bring your work with you to a filming site, library, or production meeting.
  4. Yo, if you went for the 3600 and instead of the 3700x and drop the meme RAM you could have a 2080 super. Hell, you could do a lot: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($189.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: Asus TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard ($184.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($69.98 @ Amazon) Storage: Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($94.99 @ Adorama) Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 @ Walmart) Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER 8 GB Video Card ($699.99 @ Best Buy) Case: Cooler Master MasterCase H500 ATX Mid Tower Case ($109.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: EVGA GD (2019) 600 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($64.98 @ Amazon) Total: $1464.90 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-17 03:52 EST-0500 Hell, for $200 you can get a 2080ti. https://www.ebay.com/itm/ZOTAC-Gaming-GeForce-RTX-2080-Ti-AMP-Graphics-Card/383243656558?epid=27026720738&hash=item593b1a1d6e:g:WuwAAOSwPAldu3yg You weill see literally no difference in games between the 3600 and the 3700x, the only difference is that one cost $120 more. The Trident Z does nothing for you, best just go with Vengeance LPX or Ripjaws V and get the best GPU you can.
  5. Oh shit thats right. Yeah might as well go with the 9600k at that point. Microcenter sells it for like $179, and you can bundle it with a MoBo for a $20 discount. Would be a faster machine anyway. OP could probably make it work in their budget by going with DIYPC F2 case, and cutting out the 5 pack of fans I suggested, as that case comes with fans and is a little cheaper than the one I originally suggested.
  6. I got you: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor ($189.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: ASRock B450M/AC Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($74.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($69.98 @ Amazon) Storage: Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($94.99 @ Adorama) Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($49.99 @ Walmart) Video Card: XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB THICC II Video Card ($369.99 @ Amazon) Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($44.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: Corsair CX (2017) 650 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($69.98 @ Amazon) Total: $964.90 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-17 00:39 EST-0500 Corsair h100i for $60 (absolute steal). It didn't show up on pcpartpicker. https://www.amazon.com/CORSAIR-Radiator-Advanced-Lighting-Software/dp/B07PJY3CF1/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=240+aio+renewed&qid=1576561124&sr=8-1 The 3600 and 3600x are the same exact chip, so no point in spending the extra $10 if you are going with aftermarket cooling (h100i). That motherboard is the same thing as the b450m Pro4, it just has onboard wifi (and bluetooth I think). Its not super flashy looking, but its reliable and you can overclock on it. I've always been a propenent of MicroATX builds for gaming, as no one does dual GPUs anymore, and the saved desk space along with easier mobility of the system are nice things to have.
  7. Hell, if you're itching for an upgrade, get a better monitor before anything else. ANY better system would be meaningless if your display is still 1920x180 60Hz I know you said you would get a monitor later on, but right now its the only thing that would actually improve your gaming experience. A 2600 witha 1060 3GB will be almost no different than a 4670k with a 10603GB. Get this monitor, and in a few years when you are making more money get a whole new system that can make use of it. https://www.amazon.com/MSI-Non-Glare-UltraWide-21-Resolution/dp/B07G5FCR6X/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=curved+monitor+ultrawide+3440&qid=1576560179&s=electronics&sr=1-4
  8. To be honest, you're not in a great position to upgrade. The 4670k pairs pretty well with a 1060 3GB, neither really bottleneck each other. If you got a significantly faster video card, the 4670k is gonna be a little too slow, and if you upgraded your CPU RAM, and MoBo, you wouldn't likely see any real differences in game performance as the 4670k can handle the 1060 3GB. Get another 8GB dimm of memory and your set for afew years at least. Put the rest of that money away and wait until there's something worth actually upgrading to.
  9. And if you go the desktop route, this configuration would be my highest recommendation for a performance per dollar premier build. PCPartPicker Part List CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F 2.9 GHz 6-Core Processor ($144.99 @ B&H) Motherboard: Gigabyte B365M DS3H Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($64.98 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($49.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Intel 660p Series 1.02 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($94.99 @ Adorama) Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($44.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: EVGA GD (2019) 500 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply ($64.98 @ SuperBiiz) Case Fan: ARCTIC P12 PWM PST(5-pack) 56.3 CFM 120 mm Fans ($27.99 @ Newegg) Total: $492.91 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-17 00:04 EST-0500 These parts with a 480 from ebay.
  10. Also, don;t buy a new 580 (or 480, same exact GPU die) if you go the desktop route. Craigslist and eBay are flooded with 580s right now for a significantly lower price and eBa cards are totally fine. If it arrives and it doesn't work, eBay will get you your money back. https://www.ebay.com/itm/GIGABYTE-Radeon-RX-480-Windforce-Gaming-8GB-Graphics-Card/193260263536?hash=item2cff359870%3Ag%3AyJ8AAOSwhJtd-Fq1&LH_BIN=1 https://www.ebay.com/itm/MSI-RX-480-8GB-GDRR4-Gaming-X-PCIe-3-0/263986753111?hash=item3d76d62e57%3Ag%3AnooAAOSwD~FbwLXF&LH_BIN=1
  11. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TBQ637W?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1&pldnSite=1 This is slightly higher end SSD for about $15 more.
  12. Try an SSD first. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/4CzFf7/mushkin-enhanced-raw-960-gb-25-solid-state-drive-mknssdrw960gb $78 for a TB is unbeatable. Even with a lower end SSD like this one, it will be a night and day improvement over using a HDD for both windows and your editing software. Premeir is designed to favor intel, so your i7 is what you want to probably stick with. Look at it this way, you can try this, and if it works, you keep most of your money, and if it doesn't, at least your laptop will be faster for mobile editing, and you're only out $70. You could even move the SSD you bought into a new system you would build later.
  13. Whats wrong with the a400? Pretty standard sata r/w speeds, anything faster doesn't have anything to really offer for gaming performance.
  14. If you can fit it (and you shouldbe able to), i'd go with NH15. https://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NH-D15-heatpipe-NF-A15-140mm/dp/B00L7UZMAK/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=noctua+dh15&qid=1576549164&sr=8-3 $10 more for a WAY more powerful cooler with twin radiators, you could get that i5 to like 5.2 or 5.3.
  15. Yeah. Do you live near a microcenter? They have the 9600k for $179 and they'll give you a $20 discount on a motherboard with purchase. They also sell 120GB SSDs for $15 (their generic brand which actually perform quite well). I would still recommend the 5700xt over the 2060 super all day now that drivers have stabilized. https://www.amazon.com/XFX-Radeon-GDDR6-1980MHz-RX-57XT828D6/dp/B07XQN95HY/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=5700xt+thicc&qid=1576548912&sr=8-5
