So I would "like" to build myself a new PC for editing. I edit Call of Duty montages and I want to "improve" my edits overall with better effects and stuff.

What I want it to be able to do with ease.
- Run AE CS6 with plugins (BCC/Sapphire) smoothly
- Render 3D models and Text via Element 3D/Cinema 4D without taking 9 years
- Play 60fps videos back smoothly with Quicktime

I have $700 to spend on the build.

I DO NOT care about flashy parts and cases to save money. I just need parts good enough to accomplish my goals with ease. I also will not be gaming on this PC. I also do not need any external things like mice, keyboards, monitors.

Thanks for any suggestions you guys leave!

Just a basic monitor. I don't need anything fancy like a 4k monitor.

a little over. (once the seasonic promotion end)

You really need a new monitor to be fair.. Save yourself up a extra $100-150 buy yourself a nice ultrawide from LG or a decent monitor from dell. To even be able to use this, you're going to need to go on amazon and buy a cable adapter so VGA to whichever input you're using on the card.

Ok. Thanks. I planned the price to be over a bit due to pc parts ALWAYS changing prices. And i will see what i can do about the monitor.

No need for an RX 570, the money is better spent on a better CPU.

2 more cores, 4 more threads. Plus the 1600 comes with a better cooler than the 1400.
