Time to build a video editing and gaming PC

1 minute read

Recently after several frustrating hours of trying to edit videos to upload to YouTube I came to the realization that my computer just wasn’t up to the job.

I would like to say I spent a good deal of time considering my options but that isn’t the case. It took me all of a couple of minutes to decide that this would be a great idea for my next project – build a custom video editing PC!

Building your own customized PC can be a challenging but very satisfying experience. I’ve always enjoyed creating things and when I built my first PC many years ago I felt a real sense of achievement.

The great thing is that you’re in the driving seat, you get to pick the components and you get to build the thing from scratch. Maybe you’ve been looking for an excuse to upgrade your desktop pc as well? With the release of the new Skylake processors and compatible motherboards I think it’s an ideal time to build a new computer.

If you’re like me you’ll probably want to start straight away but for those of you that are novice builders the idea of building a computer might seem a bit intimidating.

Well, in the coming weeks I will be posting my amazing, no…ultimate guide to building your own pc. I’ll include step by step instructions and videos to help you along the way.

Although my main focus is video editing the finished build will also be able to play mid-level games making it an excellent budget gaming rig.
