    Advice on building PC for Premiere Pro / After Effects

    funkytwig Community Member

      Hi.  I am on a bit of a (student) budget  but think I cam build a PC for video editing without breaking the bank.  The 'AMD FX-6100 AM3+ 3.3GHz 14MB 95W' seems very good value and is 6 core.  There seem to be various bundles for around 200 pounds (I am in UK).

       

      The Motherboards the bundles come with are Asus M5A78L-M, Asus M5A97 PRO S/L and GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3.  Not sure of the relative merits but like that they all have 2 full sized card slots.

       

      The other question is what is a good CUDA graphics card that wont bread the bank.

       

      Regards,

      Ben
