Looking for a pc

Looking for a pc

Postby OlberJ » Mon Mar 30, 2015 10:42 pm

In the market for a new desktop pc that can handle video and audio well.

Any suggestions what to go for and where best to buy? Just the case and hardware I need, no peripherals.

Been a while since I built a machine but I'd like to use it for editing and also a bit of home music production with the geetar etc.

Gaming not a concern. Not interested in a mac. Budget would be good but I'll spend where vital.


Cheers in advance,
Olie

I bought one of these last year (so the exact spec has probably changed a wee bit):

Not the cheapest but it's fast and handles video editing no problem at all.

I also got this (but version 12), which is good value and pretty capable:

I'd spend the money on CPU, RAM & graphics card. If you want to save a bit, could do with out the solid state drive and RAID?
