Hi,

I'm looking to get a quote on building a PC from scratch that is capable of heavy video editing and gaming on the side.
It would be great if I could get 16GB RAM minimum and the Intel i7 8700 in the quote.
I'm aiming for a price range between $2000 - $2500.

Cheers Angel

Morning JLMacca151,


I have quoted up a well balanced render system for you and have stuck with a 3GB GTX1060 for your gaming needs.


This will be a fairly capable editing machine and a decent 1080p gamer usually pulling off highish settings


Have a look over the below quote and let me know what you think :)

Sorry for the late reply, but it looks great!

I'll probably look to purchase this around the beginning of next year when I can afford it, unless you guys have some sort of plans that could allow me to get it earlier?

Cheers

Morning JLMacca151,


Unfortunately there hasn't been any movement in pricing since this was last quoted.


Let me know closer to the time of purchase so I can re quote for you as with next gen cards trickling out over the next few months prices are likely to decrease.

Awesome, I will let you know closer to the time.
Also is there going to be any price difference if I wanted to be able to have dual monitors?

Cheers

Hey,

Once you are ready to buy let us know and we will re-quote. Hopefully if there is any price difference you can get dual monitors.

Unfortunately, we can't tell you what prices are going to do, especially since the NZ dollar has been tanking. Which has seen prices increase over the last couple of months.

Hi Guys,
I've been doing at bit of research on editing computers and have read a couple of articles that say having more cores is better than clockspeed for editing on Adobe Premiere Pro. I was wondering if you guys would know what is better? If it is cores would it be possible to get a new quote with the AMD Ryzen 2700X? Also i'm mainly editing 1080 60fps videos so just wanted to make sure that 16GB of RAM is enough, some articles suggest 32GB.

Cheers

Afternoon JLMacca151,


Overall the AMD CPUs are better balanced at different workloads, with Adobe Premiere Pro the 2700X seem to consistently be faster than an 8700 especially when dual rendering.


Based on this I have quoted you up an AMD equivalent of your previous build, the GTX1060 can natively run 3-4 displays depending on the resolution
