I'm trying to build a system for video editing on a budget. I have a really good pc case, dvd writer, 750 watt power supply, blu ray writer, I'm considered the fx8350, dual or single xeon 5660, or i7-8700k. Are server systems / workstations better than regular systems for video editing?
I'd prefer the cheapest option for performance.
Here is what I edit Videos On – Desktop Computer, in the case is a am Asus P8P67 Motherboard, with an I7 Intel CPU. 128 GB RAM, Dual 4 GB Graphics cards hooked together by SLI cable and 4 4TB hard drives. The Power Supply is 900 watts. The Computer runs Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia Cinnamon. I capture footage off of my MiniDV Tape Cameras using a KINO, then to Edit My Videos I use Kdenlive. When I press Render of Video I have made, it barely makes the machine work hard. And did I say, the OS and the Program I Use are all free.
I use a couple newer mac book pros with final cut. I break all of my footage into clips and save them onto flash drives so its not eating internal memory.
I would honestly recommend the iMac 5K (fully upgraded, with ram purchased off of Amazon), with the screen included, I think it's a great value for the money.
