Hi Guys,

My Computer Fried and I am on a very special request.

I only have $500 bucks to assemble a video rig.

I have:

Monitor
Mouse
Keyboard
Software

I need,

Processor,
Hard hard drive,
case (optional)
Video Card
Motherboard
Memory Ram
Power Supply

My budget is 500 but if you see that with 600 or 700 you can get something that is MUCH better I can extend to that too.

Thank you so much for your help guys.

I Live in California

AMD APU seems good too?
or 8350 seems very cheap and still fast with 8 cores. Future will also bring more multi threading support, therefore win - win situation

SSD 128 samsung Pro, EVO, 840 or seagate 7200.14 or WD Blue or BLACK or RED for nas

Case you decide lol maybe corsair 200r or 300r

gtx 760? or hd 7870, 7950

Ram not sure anything that is 8gb or higher with low cas and high memory

PSU from Corsair, EVGA, CM, ENERMAX budget psu

e.g. eVGA SuperNOVA NEX650 with 10 year warranty

the above are based on GBP UNITED KINGDOM

What software do you edit with? Is this strictly for video editing and no gaming?

Assuming your not gaming here are some builds.

Intel build, no optical drive. DVD for $20 bux and bd for well under 100. 4770k for another $100 will give you hyperthreading but may not help much over a 4670k. Using built in graphics assuming your not gaming.

At that price point, your options are very limited. For now, just focus on spending most of the budget on CPU horsepower, and spend less money on unnessasary components. Maybe go with an AMD APU. That way, you won't have to buy a GPU because obviously APUs have built in graphics.

I'd get something like this. Gotta love the mITX form factor. Video editing is a light workload. There's really no need to go overkill if you dont want to game at all.

I wouldn't say that, video editing for the vast majority is a CPU intensive ordeal, especially when it comes to encoding the video or re-encoding it to another format. Like anything else it depends on the level we are talking about. Windows Movie maker and your short cell phone clips are going to require alot less resources then Premier Pro and Raw HD footage.

Some software can make use of the GPU to help speed up encoding but as i understand it there is usually a quality tradeoff when using something like CUDA, quick sync, and whatever AMD's tech is called.

Most encoding software is very well threaded (like handbrake) and will not only do well with a faster core, but will benefit from more cores too. Editing software tends to be less well threaded but that doesnt mean extra cores wont help, just that faster cores are more important.

Video editing for the most part is not reliant on a good gpu, but a powerful cpu and a good platform.
