    New PC Build Help (My First)


      Ok so I am making the move from Mac to PC and after a lot of research and planing have decided that building my own is the way to go.  I shoot 2.5K, 4K Raw and also HDSLR footage (4K timlapse and 1080p RAW video using Magic Lantern).  I am trying to stay under $2000 for everything as I am going to need a monitor and some software as well.  Any help would be greatly appreciated in terms of if all the pieces will work together and if there are better options to go for.  I have never built a PC before, but consider myself pretty tech savvy, plus there are a lot of build videos out there.


      Looking to have a system that can handle the up to 4K (can be at 50%) through AE and PP CC without dropped frames.

      Again, any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!


      PS I already have number about 8TB in other drives and am thinking about a 120GB SSD for the software and keepnig the 240GB SSD and a 480GB SSD drive I already own for the clips I would currently be working on.
