looking to get first time PC for Adobe premier video and photoshop photo editing but I don't feel confident doing so myself, are they any specific builds or bundles that would be ideal for me? I don't mind buying 2nd hand to lower costs if it means I can get a better pc

Do you want a desktop or a laptop? A desktop with a good monitor would be good for those applications. The more RAM the better. When you decide which option we can make more specific recommendations.

I would wait a day or two for suggestions but as a start have a look at Novatech and Chillblast as suppliers. One exampe of Novatech is


Plus a good monitor, I suggest a 24” one, Do wait for more suggestions as Easter is delaying responses at the moment.

I can vouch for Novatech. They're very helpful and you can have specific requirements added to your build.

After care is fantastic, for as long as your machine is in use

I have done all that Premier and Photoshop. Regarding Photoshop you have no special requirements except good graphic card. As far as for memory dont go beneath 8 GB and for video editing don't go below i7. Frankly I was looking to save money bought i5 didn't save much and lost a lot, when videos render one after another it can make a huge difference. Either way, good graphic card, best processor meaning i7 is the lowest.
