Hey guys, my brother is after a new build that can do video rendering, I’m more of a gamer so not sure what the best build would be, I’ve looked at the Ryzen 3900x and that looks good, budget isn’t really an issue but obviously price to performance will play a factor, No sense in over spending, any build suggestions guys? Thanks chaps.

What SOFTWARE is being used? "Rendering" means lots of different things. Some software scales well on CPU, some uses CUDA.

I went more price/performance, for this build. Not knowing storage needs, I only put in a drive for OS, and programs, and one to be able to use as a scratch disk. The 3900x is a nice price/performance CPU, while the 3950x is not a terrible idea, depending on just how serious the work is. I would watch some Gamer's nexus reviews for each. I chose the 2060 KO ultra, from Evga, because it is cheap, but is a cut down RTX 2080. It games the same as a 2060, but its workstation performance is quite a bit better. Sky's the limit, on that one, obviously. I chose air cooling, for reliability.

Edit*
I see you posted a UK budget, as I was building up a system, so here is one, for your currency.

Nice build, there won’t be any gaming happening or nothing serious anyways if that makes a difference To the gpu but that looks a nice build, really appreciate it, storage would increase a little more though, other build specs are welcome guys, be interested to see other peoples opinions as amd isn’t set in stone, I just choose it because it’s looked good from the knowledge I have, obviously you guys are the experts.
