I'm planning to build a $700 4k editing rig, can anyone help me pick parts? I am an experienced PC builder, but I usually build gaming rigs. I plan to use Adobe Premier for editing videos. Thank you in advance. I live in Florida.

What camera/source and recorder are you using? What format/bandwidth is the footage?

Nothing here is really ideal, but the budget isn't here for ideal.

Proper 4K editing rig would have 32GB RAM and a GTX 1660. A Full ATX board with more I/O would be nice for the long run.

If you can wait a few months and save a few coins, a Ryzen 7 3700X would be nice. Probably ~30% faster than the 2700 shown in the build above for 4K editing.

Best to go used for this, here. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vRRKfH

Used 1070s are a gold mine, around $230, and is so far the best used video card in the performance and price range.

The difference in performance between a 1660 and a 1070 for video editing would be a few percent. Not worth the risk of buying used when a brand new 1660 is $220.

When the 1070 is $150 used... then it's worth consideration.

I don't understand the used GPU market. Both buyers and sellers think these things are worth way more than they are.

Okay so this build would give me the best performance possible for 4K editing? Do you have any graphs for me to look at rendering times? I’m willing to chip in more to get a r5 2600 if need be!

Generally for $700 you're looking at a 1650 TI, or a 1050 TI / RX 570. A 1070 is faster than any of those used. If you can save up another $100 or so, you can get a HDD and a R5 2600 / R7 1700x, i'd go for the R7
