— Buying a PC for Video Editing: What You Need to Know! —

** Gear Provided by MSI ** The PC in this video and all its components were provided by MSI. We were looking to upgrade one of our PC’s, and MSI reached out offering to send us some of their awesome gear. We provided them with our standard terms (TL;DR version: “Sounds great, BUT we will only ever present our full, unfiltered, unbiased opinions – both good and bad”). Not only did they agree, they insisted we go all out with our thoughts on the good, the bad, the awesome & the ugly. They sent us the full PC, and we’ve been basking in its awesomeness ever since.

A powerful Video Editing PC can dramatically improve your editing workflow, significantly reduce render times, and make a BIG boost to your productivity. It was time for us to upgrade our primary video editing PC build recently, so we thought we’d put together a series of videos helping others do the same.

Whether you’re looking to build a PC yourself, or buy something pre-assembled you can just plug-and-play, there are a few key things you need to consider if video editing performance is your main objective. Plus, with the fast pace technology is changing it’s important to reach a balance between price, performance and ‘future-proofing’ your new computer, as new updates to software, hardware, ports and workflows like 4k video editing become the de-facto standard.

In this video we take a look at everything you need to know, including the critical components, specs and features to look out for when deciding which is the best PC for video editing within your budget.
