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

    Cross Aerial Photography Level 1

      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






      CPU: 2.6 GHz Core i7 6700HQ








      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.
