Gamer PC for editing

jakeman3's picture

A few years ago I was upgrading to HD video. I found a ASUS off the shelf desk top gamer computer with the newest i7 processor, OS8, 32 gig RAM, USB 3, HDMI & VGA outs & 1 TG hard drive. All for under $1000. After doing all the new machine Microsoft upgrades I loaded the software & it ran smooth as silk & has since. Everything in real-time (but I rarely have more then 3 video tracks). So.....give a pre-made gamer a serious consideration before you spend a ton on a custom built.

Best Laptop for Editing

Great article, Chris. It got me excited about this Acer laptop, except for one thing, "made for gaming". I am not a gamer and if I am going to spend that much money, I want to get the best laptop "made for video editing". So, what is the best Video Productions mobile workstation that I can get for under $4,000?
Thanks,
