What's a good build for editing? Spent around $2000 on my last computer and it's just not cutting it anymore. Once I start adding effects it's impossible to play the timeline smoothly. My current specs are:
i7-7700K
32 GB ram
GTX 1080ti graphics card
480GB SSD

I do a lot of heavy duty visual effects so I need something pretty powerful.

I was thinking of getting something along the lines of this build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/K6F4fH

If you have any suggestions for me please let me know!

@ANDREWPROTV I don't see a motherboard in your build on pc part picker? I'm assuming it is very top line to have everything you want from this build? Also that is a lot of storage space, but if you are doing a lot of high end lengthy videos I understand. One thing I would change is to swap out the rtx 2080 and just get a titan x to prevent bottlenecking
