    Build Worth the upgrade: is this worth it for video editing.

    Cross Aerial Photography

      I run a aerial photography business and do alot of 4k 60 fps editing and rendering out effects in Premiere Pro and After Effects. I edit currently on my laptop but will be switching over to a new system. I want to know:

       

       

      1) What can I expect from a new system?

       

       

      2) Should I upgrade my GPU?

       

       

      Here are the towers specs:

      MOBO: ASrock Pro 4

       

       

      CPU: i5-3570k

       

       

      GPU: Powercolor R9 290 PCS+

       

       

      PSU: CX750M

       

       

      RAM: 8Gb of Corsair Vengeance

       

       

      Case: HAF 932 advanced

       

       

       

       

      Laptop:

      CPU: 2.6 GHz Core i7 6700HQ

       

       

      GPU: NVIDIA GTX970M 3GB GDDR5

       

       

       

       

      RAM: 16 GB DDR4-SDRAM

       

       

       

       

      So for the upgrade, I am thinking this:

      MOBO: ASUS Prime X370-Pro

       

       

      CPU: Ryzen 1700

       

       

      GPU: 1070 or keep current GPU

       

       

      PSU: CX750M

       

       

      RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)

       

       

      Case: HAF 932 advanced or something smaller

       

       

       

       

      So what upgrades can I expect? I am tired of long render times.
