As the title says, I want to learn how to build a video editing workstation/gaming PC.
What forums do you all recommend as a good place to get started as noob and learn about what I need to do to build my own PC?
I have been watching random YT videos, and reading blog posts. What online community is the best place to interact with experienced pc builders?
https://www.phoronix.com/forums/forum/hardware may be one possible place to start. There’s a complete hardware section, so you can at least find out about various hardware components.
Have a look at the build guides here to get an idea of what is needed, within a particular budget and type of PC required:
thanks for the recommendations!
What kind of budget are you working with and is it going to include a new monitor etc or just the tower itself?
2,000 USD, just the tower, I have a current desktop, so I’ll be using my monitor from that.
You should have no problem with that. I already priced it out in Cdn so this will get you decent parts. I use parts picker sometimes but I’m so familiar with the parts and pricing i just look up the stuff from my Canadain computer parts supplier where i purchase everything.
I am hoping with some new GPUs coming out in the next few months and the crypto crash, that maybe I can get a decent graphics card somewhat close to msrp
All graphics cards i buy are MSRP. I only buy from a reputable supplier who doesn’t play that game. Mostly it is AMD cards they have availability. I don’t see much Nvidia. The new AMD Ryzen processors will also be available in the coming months and they are a new am5 socket design so will be a newer motherboard with DDR5 memory. Boards should also be Pci-e 5.0 Keep in mind the latest newest products will be more expensive.
