    Father/Son New Desktop Build for Premiere Pro


      My son and I are planning to build our first computer to be used for #1 Video Editing and #2 Video Games(Battlefield4).  There lies the potential problem Video Editing vs Gaming.  I cant afford to have two seperate computers.  I am trying to find a happy medium.


      Currently using a Gateway FX6800-01e, has an Intel i7-920/2.67GHz Processor, with 9GB of RAM, and a GTX 560TI Graphics Card.  The computer is struggling with some of the video editing that we are performing and expect to have additional issues with the higher resolution video that we will pull off the gopro3+ and Canon 70D.


      I have not used Premiere Pro although it is one of my christmas presents.  Most of our editing at first will be to pull together a varity of videos and edit/combine them into a movie story.  We will use Premiere Pro for Video editing and Lightroom for Photo's, next year when he heads off to college we will purchase Photoshop CS.  I need to consider growth as we develop our skills within Premier Pro.  We both have the interest and are for lack of a better term - excessive compulsive.  Once we start something we dive into it hard.


      Here is where we are at.  My Budget is $2500 - if its less great, if its more not so good.  I have pulled information from PC Parts Picker on a desktop that I think may work for both video editing and gaming.  Can anyone give there two cents on this build. I think this will be fine for gaming.  My concern - is this enough to grow within Premiere Pro. Any recommendations or changes to this build are welcome.
