PC Build For Editing and Rendering

Lykheang

9 months ago

I want to build a pc for around 2000$( Don’t Includes Monitor )! a pc focusing on editing and rendering (I render a lot of video everyday like 4hours of videos) so It need to render fast and temperature. I also need to record online game like pubg using OBS (I think if Render well recording also well cause doesn’t use much CPU than rendering) .Hope to get good suggestions from you guys! Thank for your help!

Another question is I want to build by myself and I never build before . A few questions: - should I buy pc part from store or online? - what I need to know before build a PC ? ( like how to setup window etc.. )

What software do you use for rendering and video editting? Render engines can use raw CPU or GPU grunt, so depending on the software it may mean you need to focus on more than the other.

I would go for something like this then, great Adobe products performance for the budget, as well as future proofing with thunderbolt. Get a cache/scratch nvme drive if ram is exceeded, or you can add more in future. Decent cuda core GPU for Adobe and gaming. See what you think. Check out this link for background on my choices

Here's the pc, it i slightly over budget at 2096 dollars. If you need help building the pc there are multiple tutorials on youtube that tell you to corrrectly insert and place everything in the right place, nevertheless building a pc is like "adult legos." If you still do not trust yourself i recomend this pre-built pc: https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/VR-Ready-Deal-RTX-2080

Threadripper is probably the best way to go but isn't the one you've selected a 1st generation chip and not the latest generation?

The first build, while not as powerful for gaming, will eat through CPU rendering workloads thanks to 16 cores.

The second build, while relatively modest in terms of CPU, will have a better time with GPU rendering. On top of this, it can easily accept multiple more GPUs to further reduce your render times.

Both include more storage than I normally recommend, since if you have that much video chances are you need the extra space. You may also want to look into more robust storage and backup solutions to handle all that data.

32GB of RAM, expandable, for video editing purposes.

Both builds have good coolers.

Also worth noting that some programs, like After Effects, use a mix of cores and clock speed in such a way that a 9900k would likely be worth considering. If you list out your programs it will be significantly easier to tailor a more specific build.

I think it comes down to whether you want maximum export performance or more balance between gaming and rendering.

1950x/X399 platform Benefits:

  • Supports up to 128GB of RAM (in case you start working with extremely large projects or higher than 4k resolutions)

  • More robust storage options

  • Potential CPU upgrades

Downsides:

  • Lower gaming performance

9900k/Z390 benefits:

  • Fastest gaming CPU available

  • Easily capable of pushing the highest framerates in games

  • Slightly cheaper than 1950x/x299

Downsides:

  • 64GB RAM maximum

  • No upgrade path on Z390

  • Slower rendering than 1950x

first of all, build of course (unless you find a prebuilt that costs less than what it takes to build it yourself-not likely)

a) ground yourself. you can ruin a rtx 2080 ti with static electricity.

b) i usually buy in-store since its easier to return stuff, but for stuff like ram i order online
