Question PC for Video/VFX Work

Dec 23, 2018
Hey Guys,

2012 together with the community of Tom's Hardware Forum I build a PC for my main work. Since then technology quiet moved on and I want to upgrade or build a new system for me.

I usually do a lot of editing in Premiere Pro, but also InDesign and After Effects. Maybe in the future some VFX work in Nuke. My Budget is around 1000 - 1500€.

Here is my config for my new system:
  • Mainboard: ASRock X399 PHANTOM GAMING 6
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X WOF
  • SSD: Corsair Force MP510 480 GB
  • Graphics: MSI Radeon RX 570 ARMOR 8G OC
  • RAM: G.Skill DIMM 16GB DDR4-3200 Kit
  • Power: be quiet! POWER ZONE 650W
My old PC:
  • Mainboard: Gigabyte GA-H77 D3H Intel H77
  • CPU: Intel XEON E3-1240v2 4x 3,4GHz
  • SSD: 128GB Samsung 830 Basic
  • RAM (32GB - 4Sticks): 8GB DDR3 1600 DIMM Vengeance
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 970 4GB
  • Power: 360W Seasonic 80+ Gold
I'm living in Germany and gonna buy it in The current price for the system ist 1400€.

I want to build the system myself as soon as possible.

What do you think of my new system? I think upgrading the old one, doesn't make any sense, doesn't it? Do you have different ideas for the components?
