Hi guys,

I want to buy a computer for video editing and 3D render for example. I read some reviews and i have in mind this following components:

CPU - Intel CORE I7 4790 3.6GHZ 8MB SKT 1150 (274,60€) SSD - SAMSUNG SERIES 840 EVO ULTRASLIM 250GB 2.5'' SATA III (129,90€) RAM - CORSAIR PC3-12800 1600MHZ 16GB VENGEANCE PRO BLACK CL9 (2x8GB) DDR3 (162,25€) ou KINGSTON PC3-12800 1600MHZ 16GB XMP BEAST CL9 (2x8GB) DDR3 (159,90€) MB - ASUS Z97-A SKT 1150 (139,20€) ou ASUS Z97-PRO SKT 1150 (173,90€) GPU - ASUS GEFORCE GTX760 DIRECT CU II OC 2GB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 (228€)

Mu budget limit its about 1350$ (1000€). I will keep my case (Antec Three Hundred) and my power supply (Corsair 550W). Btw, im from Portugal.

Hope you can help me and suggest things.


My best regards

It looks like a good setup. My only suggestion would be to get a larger hdd, or ext hd.

Unless I am mistaken there doesn't appear to be a standard hard drive listed. The SSD will be fine for programs and windows but I suggest that you need at least a 1tb harddrive to store the video and a back up too (externally). You could possibly cut back on the graphics card.

I would also be tempted to put in a higher rated Power Supply Unit whilst doing this initially. I agree vwith Woolwell. The hard drive is essential as 250GB will not go far considering the size of video files.

Or a separate NAS Drive
