Hi everyone, been googling for a few days now, trying to find the best bang for the buck and Ryzen 5 seems to be the way to go when it comes to video editing. Here's what i come up with. (had to change the total as some of the prices were too low ). £ 950 is the top bracket, would love to spend less if possible.

PC is meant to be used for video editing only, 1080p max. Premier Pro, After Effects.
Since I'm on Asus N550j right now, this will be massive improvement anyways. I'm not fuss about rendering times too much as my projects are quite short and as i mentioned 1080p max. I do care about somewhat smooth preview, especially when there's a few effects added. Same with After Effects, some projects are simply impossible to preview.

Thanks for any input
 
Throw in an hdd, shrink ssd for booting purposes and video editing. PSU is not good, pick a better MB, keeping all the peripherals, better rams and cheaper in total.
