Hey there. I have been in dialog with the members of this community about building a custom pc as well as the people over on Reddit /buildapc. The PC is primarily oriented towards video editing and image production but I want it to be robust enough for the current gaming era and several years to come. Was just wondering if I was in the overkill zone or the build looks appropriate to you guys? I've been swapping out parts based on rec's and think I'm about there. However, I want to attach...to the best of my recollection, my current build and see if there's even the possibility of resuscitating that and just building a budget family comp for replacement (it's been relegated to the family office and gunked up with files and its a memory nightmare) . Thanks .

If you really want the PC to last long over time I recommend waiting for few months. New hardware is going to launch specially the Video-cards from NVIDIA and AMD that will big jump in performance over what is currently available. Wait for it and get a PC that will last you good 5Yrs+ with little to no compromise at all in performance. By that time add as much as you can to current budget and have more than satisfying experience.

Well here’s the thing, I’m trying to film a bunch of video and perform editing tasks right now in summer so waiting isn’t really an option. I do have some extra money to spend right now , this build isn’t final. I was watching either Linus or JayzTwoCents and they said in all likelihood nvidia wasn’t about to launch any new line of cards because sales are so good on current models.

I appreciate it. The price of $1200 actually reflects the computer I built 5 years ago, however.

You won't get several years out of a gpu - at least for gaming. That's usually the part to show it's age first.

The biggest weakness of the OP's build is the monitor. 1080P @ 75hz is terrible. If the budget is tight, substitute a Ryzen 5 and put the savings into a better monitor 2K preferably at a minimum of 100 hz.

What's terrible about the current monitor when the focus of the build is video editing and image production > actual gaming?
Then you proceed to recommend an eSports gaming monitor:
-OP didn't say what kind of games they play
-to maintain that 240hz is going to require a even bigger budget, which they may or not have room for
-240hz is going to be useless for their work

A monitor will last a very, very long time. It's usefulness will outlast pretty much every other component in a particular build. As far as games, the OP can go to gpucheck.com to see what is the best combination of GPU and CPU with regard to each game that will be played on this future build. My first suggestion being a 2k monitor with at least 100hz refresh rate would work fine with video editing and image production as long as that video editing and imaging production does not require a 4k monitor. It would also fare very well in gaming. As for my 2nd possible suggestion - a 240 hz gaming monitor that is dirt cheap ($1.05 per hz) is just my way of showing that there are even more options that the OP may not be aware of. I am just offering suggestions. I don't have a stake in this build.
