Hi all, I currently have a PC with the following specs:
GeForce GTX 1080
i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz
Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 Motherboard
32 GB RAM
Kingston SSDNow UV400 960 GB SSD

I used it mostly for gaming but I will be doing a lot of 1080p/4K video editing from now on (Adobe Premiere) so Im looking to upgrade my CPU now:
  • Would the new Ryzen 7 3700x be a recommended upgrade?
  • Would it be compaitble with my current setup or will other parts also need upgrading? motherboard etc
  • Would it shorten times of video encoding and would it be noticeable to my current CPU?
I am also looking to get a RTX 2080Ti in a few months time.

Thanks
