  1. Hey, that's what this forum is for! 1080P gaming (most, not all) will also benefit from the Intel i7-8700 over the Ryzen 7 2700X. HOwever, I still advise waiting for Ryzen 3000 and checking reviews and benchmarks. Oh, I forgot to mention that I increased your RAM for video editing. www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgB7nXliBiE www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWvNbqFKLrs www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvfGWx0B4PY
  2. If you can, wait until Puget tests the Ryzen 3000 chips, but with what we have today for Adobe Photoshop/Premier Pro I would go with an Intel/Nvidia build for Intel Quick Sync, Cuda acceleration, and greater Adobe compatibility. Although the Ryzen 2700X is a little superior in Premier Pro, the Intel chip is better in Phtoshop. You can look up the Lightroom tests at Puget if you use that too. It seems like most people are going to Intel now for the Quick Sync. (I only saw 3 builds on your link, not four) This would be a nice build.If it's over budget, I can make changes. The i7-8600 is loud and throttles at turbo, so it needs an aftermarket cooler. If you have another £100, I would move up to the 8 core i7-9700K.

  3. This Asrock Taichi would be very good for $165, but I wouldn't buy a MB until I was ready to build and had all my other parts so that you don't close the window on MB returns if you have a problem. https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813157835?Item=N82E16813157835&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL052119&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL052119-_-EMC-052119-Index-_-AMDMotherboards-_-13157835-S2A2D
  4. What type of editing will you be doing and with what software?

    My very first build

    It's not exactly a benchmark site. Here is what they say: "... We compare the complete build and focus on frames per second performance in the 3 main gaming resolutions 1080p, 1440p, and 4K. Our algorithms have been carefully designed and validated by studying the best graphics benchmarking review results in the web. Sites that are truly authentic such as: tomshardware.com, techpowerup.com, techspot.com, anandtech.com, and more of the same level of authenticity to validate our results in GPU scaling, CPU bottlenecking, and impact of performance...." "How do we compare and rank these graphics cards? Real-world game benchmarks are used to determine the rankings of these graphics cards. We always look for performance in Frames Per Second, not TFLOPS or GB/s or other specification theoretical numbers that are meaningless for the gamer. Our GPU benchmark results are measured against the user preferred gaming resolution and game quality settings. We have sophisticated algorithms that have been carefully designed to produce 90% accurate estimates of gaming performance based on analyzing over 70,000 benchmark tests. Although graphics card performance varies greatly among different games, this comparison chart provides a general ranking index for graphics cards. In addition to our own graphics cards benchmarks, we use various trusted sources for validating gaming benchmarks including TechPowerUp, TomsHardware, AnandTech, TechSpot, and many more."

    Really? I looked over the site and it seems as though they are pretty rigorous in their testing.

    Ryzen 7 2700x OR I7-8700 (Non K)

    Note that the i7-8700 will throttle on turbo, so you'll want to use an aftermarket cooler with it. The Ryzen 2700X comes with a good cooler.

    I'm still a little concerned about putting a i7-9700K and a RTX 2080 in that case due to heat issues. Here's a review of the case: www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=7HK5Aulw7YI Addendum: Reviewing the video, I think my concerns are unfounded. He had a 1080 in there which is a much hotter card and no problems with temps. At the end of the video he does discuss that a 240mm AIO will probably not fit, so I would reconsider using an AIO in this case.

    Help me choose a processor

    You may be right. I am not sure why they make no mention of it, as many of the youtubers find it quite helpful-enough even to sway their decision toward Intel.

    Intel i5-9400f or Ryzen 5 2600x

    The Intel 9400f is very loud. Add the cost of a budget cooler to it's price.

    You're welcome. Actually, Puget lists the Threadripper 2990WX as being superior, but I think that was prior to Quick Sync. With everybody moving to Intel, I think I would too. Gaming will be better on the Intel chip too.

    i9-9900K if you are using Premier Pro. https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CC-143/Hardware-Recommendations
  14. Your friend's build looks good and BigRom's does too except for the GPU. For an Adobe Photshop/Premier Pro build you'll want to stick with Intel for Quick Sync, and with Nvidia for Cuda acceleration, and both for better compatibility with Adobe products. A GTX 1660ti would be a good choice, though you could spend more on the GPU depending on how much video editing you are doing. Use your old SSD for the C-drive and the new NVMe for working with your video files. Prices on the CPU may go down after Zen 2 comes out.

    Your build looks pretty good, but would wait for Zen 2 since it's almost here. Depending on how much video editing you do and what software you use for it, I would consider moving up to an i9-9900K and paying for it by moving down to a RTX 2070. Though very popular, I'm not a fan of the NZXT H500 case due to potential cooling issues. What about the Cooler Master H500? JonnyGuru doesn't like cable extensions. What about the Corsair RM750x White (2018) ? That MB is fine, but I think the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro wifi is a bit better.
