      Hi guys,

      I'm looking for some expert recommendation for a new computer I'm aiming to build. Of course, budget is an issue but I've narrowed down few options and I'll really like to hear your thoughts. I'm working mainly on Premiere and After Effects. So here are my options:

       

      1. CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K / 1151 Tray 3.6 GHz

      GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 GV-N1070D5-8GD-B

      Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z270-A

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      2. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X AM4 Box

      GPU: ASUS GTX 1060 DUAL-GTX1060-O6G

      Motherboard: Asus PRIME X370-PRO

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      3. CPU: Intel Core i7 6800K 2011-V3 Box

      GPU: ASUS GTX 1060 STRIX-GTX1060-O6G-GAMING

      Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z270-A

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      4. CPU: INTEL i7 5820K 6 cores 3.3GHZ

      GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1

      Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z270-A

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      5. CPU: Intel Core i7 7700 / 1151 Tray

      GPU: Palit GeForce GTX 1080 SUPER JETSTREAM 8GB 

      Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z270-A

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      6. CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X AM4 Box

      GPU: ASUS GTX 1060 DUAL-GTX1060-6G

      Motherboard: Asus PRIME B350-PLUS

      Memory: 2X16 DDR4

       

      As you can see, I can invest either in a stronger CPU or a stronger GPU, can't afford both.

      Any ideas what is the best combination?

       

      Thank you all!
