Need some help planning

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I am planning on saving up for a new PC as the one that I have currently is a 6th generation i5. My brother uses this PC for his video editing and as of late we have started to feel a bit of the age on it, especially when editing and rendering larger files. I am planning on getting an AMD Ryzen based PC, because we heard that it is better for editing. We are from Malaysia and the budget we have sort of planned out is about RM5000, or about $1200. So far the one that I have planned is this, but any help would be really appreciated! Also, if you can suggest any cuts we can make to the cost without affecting the quality of work being done that would also be much appreciated. The first image is a PC built using pcpartpicker.com. Some of the parts might have to be ordered from overseas, so I am not sure what the final price might be. The second image is from a local PC builder, but they don't have some parts that I want to use so I just put some placeholder parts that are about the same, as far as I know.2123502372_AMDcustom2.thumb.png.9cfccf117b5a1f284e6b8238591c9c52.png754977737_AMDmalaysiabuild.png.a72105d5143942fb1d5f0cfab7fa4b01.png

you can reuse all parts except for the cpu & mobo for upgrade

are you looking for a new pc?

Probably worth getting an R7 2700/X if it's a lot cheaper, then using that money on the GPU if you do a lot of gaming, like an RX 5700/XT or even a used 980ti if it's cheaper than the 5700

Those smaller air coolers aren't a huge upgrade over the stock cooler. Look for dual tower coolers like the neptwin or Arctic Freezer Xtreme

The Q300P has really bad airflow, you'd want the Q300L or Q500L at least.

 

Just double check power supply reviews, would probably just get the coolermaster power supply there.


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I am not sure if my brother wants to sell off the PC for parts. Currently it has 12GB 2333mhz RAM and a Nvidia 750ti 2GB, along with an older transcend 128GB SSD. If possible, a new PC would be nice, and even if we don't manage to sell the old one off, I might be able to use it for my work as it might not need as much power as my brother's workload.

My brother does play some games, Overwatch and Rainbow 6, but for the most part, this PC is supposed to be for his video editing, although if you ask him he wants to stream. I'm not sure about the fans because there is not much choice on most of the websites I checked for fans, so I just picked whatever and hoped it would fit. This is also my first time trying AMD so I'm not very sure about the differences in generation between the 2700X and the 3700X.

I think the 980ti might be more of a shout. The 5700 is about RM300 more than 1660ti. Thank you for the suggestion for that, I forgot the 980ti existed, as bad as that sounds

you may skip that tx3 cooler,  coz the stock cooler is just fine.

 

Thank you very much for that info

It's like a 10-15% jump depending on how fast you can get your memory going. 2000 can handle up to 3200mhz RAM, 3000 can handle up to 3600mhz RAM, would want Cl16 or lower in either case.

The stock coolers will be fine in any event until you can find some major upgrades to them.

Thanks so much for your help. I will discuss all of this with my brother
