First PC Build Help

Hyeonmu
 Share

Hi there, 

 

I'm currently planning my first build-an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 rig for around £1500 in the U.K for gaming and some photo and video editing.  Do you guys have any advice on how to improve this?

 

Thanks

- Get better CPU for editing (Ryzen 7 1700 would be ok IMO)
-Get more RAM for editing

- Do you need 1080 for gaming (do you want 1440p/4k)? If you want to play 1080p then 1060 6GB or 1070 (or 1070Ti) would be better

- 750W probably a bit of an overkill. (But not sure how much Ryzen + 1080 would draw)

Try, fail, learn, repeat...

Which programs will you use for photo and video editing? For Adobe CC, depending on the use case, a Coffee Lake I5/I7 might perform better. For gaming, an 8400 will perform better.

The R5 is a fairly old case. There are plenty of newer and better ones, unless you absolutely need that many HDDs. 

750W is way overkill. 450-650W is fine.

Do you really need a Blu-ray player?

Ah, I inherited a Dell S2716DG so I thought that the 1080 might be better for that.

Mainly Adobe Photoshop and premier, as well as less intensive stuff like Virtualdub. For gaming anything from AAA releases to things like Europa Universalis 4.

To be honest I choose the case as I liked the look of it-I hadn't quite realized how old it was though! 

Thanks, I will correct that. 

Ideally as my old Blu-ray player broke and this seems like a economical way to replace it.

Depending on what you'll do in Premiere and Photoshop, a Coffee Lake can perform better. Check out Puget's testing.
