Uprgading for Video Editing

4 posts in this topic

Hi, I know this isn't exactly gaming related but I need help with upgrading my PC for Video Editing. I'm currently trying to edit a mix of 4k and 1080p projects on Premiere, and even with proxies my CPU is going at 100% and it isn't exactly smooth. Im editing these on a gaming PC I built back in 2014, here are the specs.

Intel i5-3470

8gb Ram

GTX 760 2gb

I'm looking at new processors however in terms of cost I'm wondering if I should just buy an i7 processor that has the same socket that would fit my motherboard for $100 ish, or I would need to spend an arm and a leg getting a new motherboard and CPU. I already have 16gb ram ordered to hopefully help and am also looking to upgrade my GPU (nothing crazy I don't play too many games but feel it would help with editing) for $150 or less.
Any help appreciated

ya, definitely upgrade that CPU to i7-4770k.  having the extra threads will really go a long way.  As for GPU, definitely upgrade that, the GTX 760 is very old and underpowered by today's standards.  even a 1060 would work well here.
