  1. I'm in the process of assembling a 4K editing rig parts list and wondering if I should go for the new 3070 or 3080. I previously had planned to get the 2070 Super for about $700 but once the 3000 series was announced I put the 2070 behind me. The goal for this rig will be to easily edit and render 4K video, mainly inside the Adobe Suite.
  2. What's the advantage of the B550 over the one I had listed?
  3. I put this list together based off some of your recommendations and a couple build videos. What do the people think? https://pcpartpicker.com/user/thatdiabeticguy/saved/NqVsXL
  4. Is there something cheaper than the 2070 Super you recommended that will still get the job done?
  5. Hey everyone! I am a freelance videographer and am in need of a serious PC upgrade. I built my current machine back in 2013 and it hasn't received too much of an upgrade since. I can edit 1080p footage just fine but 4K is basically out of the picture. I can't even scrub though a single file in Premiere Pro without it lagging and skipping frames. I'd love some help putting together the best editing focused rig possible. Here's what I'm looking for: OS - Windows 10 CPU - Probably AMD (just whatever is going to give me the best performance) RAM - 32GB minimum GPU - I own a GTX 1060 but I assume I'll need something better Boot Drive - NVME Case - NZXT H500 - 2 USB-C 10Gbps ports if possible - WiFi and Bluetooth if possible (not a necessity) - Fast file transfers and fast Premiere Pro timeline performance are the two biggest goals for this PC. I'm constantly moving large amounts of footage between hard drives and on/off my NAS so I need those fast transfers. And obviously I spend most of my time editing so I need Premiere to handle 4K workflows like a champ. I would love to build something for around $1,000 but I also want this to rig to last me awhile and be good at it's job so I'm okay going higher if needed. Budget (including currency): Under $2,000 Country: United States Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Editing 1080p and 4K footage primarily in the Adobe Suite. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I plan to use the NZXT H500 case
