Video editor

Build Description

I built this PC as a hobby and for video editing. It's been over 20 years since I've messed with computers, and i wanted to build a desktop PC. I recently decided to wade into video production, so i changed my build plan from general mid grade PC to future proof video editing PC.
The most challenging part was finding a sufficient GPU for a decent price. Because of Covid lockdowns and Bitcoin mining, the GPU was the most difficult to obtain. I got screwed on Amazon once and again on Ebay. Definitely shop around and be wary of shady sellers. In fact, I'm still waiting for my GPU. It's supposed to be here tomorrow!

Favorite Feature

I'm really impressed by the boot up and shutdown speed. Both processes take less than 30 seconds to complete.
