I need some help in choosing parts to upgrade my PC, I've got a general plan in mind but could use suggestions or directions for final choice since watching ton of reviews did not help so far.
I'm looking to upgrade my 8-year-old PC based on I7 950k, so gonna have to replace pretty much everything apart of my GTX970,1000 Watt Cooler Master PSU and an SSD I added way later.
I've got a budget of about 700-800 Pounds so about a 1000$, for a new CPU,MOBO, Case and Ram.
Nowadays I mainly use my PC for Editing loads of photos and editing video (1080p/4k) using Adobe CS.
I can't really decide between 8700k and Ryzen 7 2700x Can anyone point me towards some meaningful benchmarks?
How does one even behind to chose a MOBO (besides socket obvs) as in what features should I even look at?
Case ! I'm looking at NZXT S340 Elite, but I worried about sound my current system in the CoolerMaster C690 can be noisy and get rather hot to touch under load atm, am I right in thinking that the new cases will be nowhere near as loud as my current one or should I look at something like Darkbase 600 ? I'm not a huge fan of its looks but I live in a small Uni flat with my girlfriend so don't want anything noisier than my current build and would preferably go for something a little quieter.
Cooling, I really love the look of NZXT Kraken, but are they much noisier than (or quieter) than air coolers? I've seen people say both of these things online so I'm not sure, also which disperse of heat better? Currently with the PC on the floor next to my legs, it's not uncommon for it to raise temperature in that area for it to get uncomfortably warm (annoying the summer, great in the winter! Doubt there is a way to have it hot in winter and cool in summer, but maybe?) so I would like something that will let me avoid that.
And memory, what sort of speeds should I go for with 16gb DDR4?
So can anyone help me with this?
In short looking for something
not too noisy
good for editing photo and video
