I want to build a gaming/video editing PC.

Recommended Posts

Can somebody recommend me a budget PC that can run smooth in games and can handle video editing programs like adobe premiere and after effects?

I'm curious about this as well. I wanted to get some information on it. I'm bumping this thread up so others can it so we can get an answer :)

If you don't mind brands and stuff, it would be cheaper to go for AMD processors with their equivalent Intel counterparts. They are priced lower compared to the more popular ones. Though when it comes to RAM, the sweet spot is having 8GB  or more so that you'll have an optimized machine.

How much is your budget? I can quote you an estimate on the parts I recommend in PHP and also a reputable seller here locally.

 

I agree with NerdIndeed. I use a Ryzen 7 system myself and so far it's still running buttery smooth 8 months in. I do some occasional gaming and CAD software work (same load as video editing) and 3D modelling software. Main reason is for the cores (which is vital in video editing). Intel only offers 4-6 cores for their CPUs, even the i7 high end consumer grade CPUs. You'd have to spend double the price if you want to match Ryzen 7's 16 cores.

I'm not choosy about brands as long as it can perform like the branded ones and durable. Not all branded items have good quality anyway. 

How much is the minimum budget a person needs to make one?

I beg to disagree. There are branded components which are of good quality and poor quality. The unbranded ones are still branded, just by unknown brands from China. I've had experience with poor quality and unbranded parts before and they've all failed me within 2 years. That's why I invest into buying quality parts.

 

A desktop computer which is the cheapest a person can build but can only do basic word documents and web browsing is worth $200 (Excluding monitor, keyboard and mouse). If you go unbranded, you can probably get it with monitor, keyboard and mouse.

30-40k budget? I badly want to upgrade my PC right now, it is old as hell and can be considered a Wooden PC just because it lag in Dota 2 in ultra settings but not at all times, but it still sucks.

That's just what I meant when I said that not all branded ones having good quality. Some of them have poor quality and you're only paying for their brand name. 

 

$200 only? Wow I wasn't expecting it to be that cheap. So how much would something with good quality parts would go for?

CPU - AMD Ryzen 3 2200G or Ryzen 5 2400G (If it's still in your budget)

GPU - 4 gb Zotac GTX 1050 Ti Dual Fan OC

Motherboard - Asrock AB350M Pro 4

RAM - 2 x 4 GB G Skill Ripjaws X (Any dual channel ram brand you can find totalling 8 GB)

Storage - 1 TB Western Digital Caviar Blue

PSU - Raidmax 500x RX-500XT

Case - Tecware F3

30-40k budget. Mileage will vary on parts availability depending on where you purchase it. There's a Newegg Philippines now if you're too lazy to buy from local retailers. I will PM you the site where I bought my parts. They'll assemble all the parts for free if you buy the complete system from them. Will even load Windows 10 for free. They ship from Laoag.

Things go up to $500 to $750 to $1200 even up to $2000. It all depends on how much dough you want to spend on a system. Anything above $1200 is overkill for a consumer to be honest. I think you should also consider the cost over the years you'll be using it for to justify your purchase. Most desktops last up to 5 years before slowing down. $240/year for a $1200 system is a bargain if you compare the price to performance.

So anywhere between $500 to about $1000 will get me a really good PC? Thank you so much at least I now know how much I need to spend. You know a lot so I'm going to apologize in advance if I ask you again for information.

I would go for AMD build! If I were the one who could build your rig, the specs would be: 

16 GB DDR4 RAM ( frequency of 2133 Mhz would be fine )

AMD Ryzen 5 2600E

AMD RX 580 8GB GDDR5 

Of course, some decent SSD along with HDD and 4K monitor and you would be perfectly fine with these specs. However, this is not affordable to everyone. I do not know how much budget you have for building your new PC? My friend has similar PC to this one and let me tell you: all of the new games for flawlessly on it! So, if you have this kind of budget, you should go for it. Of course, if you opt for Intel and Nvidia graphic card, you will not make a mistake. I prefer AMD build because my rig is based on it so that is why I recommended it to you.
