    Please critique my custom video editing build

    Michelle_02

      Hi AdobeForums,

       

      I wanted to get your take on my custom build as it's geared for mainly Premiere Pro and After Effects (Adobe CC). My budget is $1000, I'm $200 over but I guess I'd have to accept that (not sure where else I could cut costs.) There are three things I'm keen on - ASUS motherboard, Intel CPU, and at least 16GB ram.

       

      Please set me straight if I'm making a big mistake on this system. Appreciate the wisdom of those who've had more experience in this sort of endeavor. I did talk to a few different computer people and I did post to another forum. I've made mods to my list since then, and I now wish to gain the feedback of those who are familiar with and use Adobe CC.
