My first PC build for video editing purposes

Apr 16, 2012 12:19 PM

I have done some research into building my own video editing PC. I want to spend about 800 pounds. I will list some of the components I have so far. Any suggestion would be welcomed and appreciated.


ASRock Z77 Extreme6 Intel Z77 (Socket 1155) Motherboard - £159.98

4 x Kingston 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM Memory - £12.76 each

For CPU I am going to wait for the Ivy Bridge Core 17 to come out

PNY nVIDIA Geforce GTX 570 Graphics Card with 1280MB GDDR5 PCI-Express



I have heard that it does not matter how fast the RAM is but it is more important how much you have. My Mobo can take 2800 Mhz. I have also heard that the graphic card is important when video editing. It acts as a secondary CPU which enhances the performance.


Is all the above information correct?

    Hello again


    You, ummm, DO realize that you are still in the wrong forums, no?


    What Adobe application are you planning to use? I don't imagine it's Captvate. I might imagine Premiere Pro, Premiere or After Effects.


    Please tell us what application you are planning on using to do your editing and I'll get you to the correct forum.


    Cheers... Rick
