Video editing - PC rig update

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



I'd like to upgrade my PC which was built in 2015 (4770k, GTX760, 24GB's of RAM).


My aim is to build a system for the next 3-5 years. I would like to edit 4K 60fps footage in the future (currently using Premiere Pro) and game at 1440p while streaming at 1080p/900p 60fps.

My plan is to buy:

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 / Noctua NH-D15 Chromax Black (Which would you recommend?)

Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super Windforce OC 3X 8G

G.Skill Ripjaws V 32GB Kit 3200Mhz CL16

MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC

Arctic MX-4 paste

Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q monitor for gaming (Or what IPS high refresh rate monitor would you recommend at around this price point?)


I would keep my:

Corsair Obsidian 450D case (I have the included 2X140mm fans in the front and 1X120mm fan in the back... Would it be worth buying more?)

EVGA Supernova G3 550W (Would it be enough?)
3 WD HDD (2 Blue, 1 Red)
2  Samsung SATA SSD (850 and 860)
Eizo CS270 monitor for editing


What would you change? I'm not planning to overclock the system.

Also, would you wait with the build? If so, why? Promising rumours of new product launches, possible price drops? It's not essential for me to upgrade right now, but I'd like to build it in the next four-five months.



Thank you!

I added different motherboard, faster ram, and 750w power supply. The moniter is straight from acer, it’s sold out everywhere else. It’s IPS, 1440p 144hz, gsync compatible, 1ms response time, and HDR 400. Based on your budget, I might consider waiting for the new graphics cards.
