New Editing Computer
So this past week I had to build a new editing computer I'm. Unfortunately mine got fried oh, so I knew it didn't computer had to happen. This is the reason why I didn't have any videos at last week. Not to mention I was building a bathroom as well in my house. So I was pretty busy. But here's a look at the new editing computer. I ended up having to change out the motherboard because the first one came DOA. In the CPU fan was obnoxiously huge and got in the way of everything. I also ended up ordering an m.2 Data drive and a RTX2060.
Looks nice. Is it still cheaper to build your own tower pc or did you do it just to have the certain components you wanted?
That is a really good question and there is a really good answer for it. I would have loved to wait for the new Ryzen. However, my editing computer literally died on me and I needed to get something immediately. SO to make a long story short, this was the best processor for that at the time. I really wanted to wait for Ryzen. However, I did go semi cheap on the graphics card in hopes to upgrade it in the future to a new Ryzen card.
It all depends on the price range you are looking at. If you are looking cheap, then it is typically better to buy it premade. But once you get into higher end gear made for editing and gaming, it is almost always better to build your own.
- I have the 2700x which is perfect for workstation stuff as it has 8 cores and 16 threads, much faster than Intel for the price when comparing multithreaded performance (important with workloadd), I would have gotten a chip like that and saved for a 2nd rtx card to put in SLI.
Ask anything of me. I rebuilt my PC recently and I keep up to date with the tech news.
