Desktop Requirements For Video Editing Not Gaming

  PC0202 10:39 12 Aug 2018

Hi Folks, a total numpty when it comes to computers, however having read so many articles on requirements for video editing i need some advices on specification with a £1600 Budget +/- £100, my hobby is photography & video, i have a mavic pro drone & a GoPro Camera, i enjoy travelling & wish to create some satisfying videos from footage that i have captured. The Footage i have off the drone is in 2.7K, also 1080 & the GoPro is a 1080 too I Understand its all about power in terms of cores & cpu & a high end video card.....but that is where my undertstanding comes to an end. So is it Intel V AMD? will a 1070 be ok or do i need a 1080 graphics card? I would very much appreciate your input of exactly what components are needed & more importantly what is compatible with each other. I don't need a Monitor, Mouse or Keyboard.....a new desktop i certainly do! Budget Approx £1600, Not sure about which video software to use, but nothing that is too complex, i am leaning towards Filmora Many Thanks Neil
