Solved Build Help: Pro Video Editing and FX PC ($6,000 Budget)

November 20, 2013 at 07:09:15
Specs: Windows 7
So far all the PC Builder advice I have gotten from others around the net only utilizes <half the budget. Which I appreciate, but I want this build to do the most amount of beastly damage within the $6,000 budget.

I will be using the PC for the Adobe Creative Suite. Specifically, Premiere and AfterFX CS6.
Within Premiere I do a lot of color correction and FX applying which is extremely CPU heavy to render, as is previewing and rendering out in AfterFX.

Really, my only requirements are the case has to have a minimum of 4 bays (for the recommended Adobe SDD/HDD setup).I need this thing to fly during all operations of video production (rendering, exporting, and FX applying is the most CPU/GPU heavy). Enough to justify the price and possibly building more for my coworkers. I don't see why it wouldn't though with the budget.

**Oh, and I already have the windows7 key.And a couple of 3TB 7200 to use as my D: and E: drives.

Why would you want to spend more if you don't have to? If you want to waste your money, I'll be glad to help:

CPU - $1050:
M-board - $430:
RAM - $900:
Graphics - $1185:
SSD - $870:
Power Supply - $300:

Total = $4735

I'm sure you can find an overpriced water cooler, case, & blu-ray burner that will put you over the top.

CPU - $2,750 - Intel Xeon E5-2697


RAM $690 - Wintec Server Series 64GB (4 x 16GB)

Graphics $1,020 - EVGA 06G-P4-2791-KR GeForce GTX TITAN

SSD $600 - SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" 1TB

That brings you up to $5,790 and the case I'd suggest would be a 1U or 2U server case which could run about $1,500, at least that's the price range of the 1U cases we use.
