Hey guys so I am looking for a pc that can handle 4k editing in premiere pro as well as do some gaming. Someone is interested in trading me their pc. They sent me a list of parts as follows from what they remeber is in it:
Corsair gaming case
intel i7-4770k 3.5ghz
Geforce 780 TI
Cool Master 1000W silent pro gold
CM storm Quickfire Rapid mechanical keyboard
Razer Death Adder Mouse
Maximus VI Hero Motherboard9
Corsair Vengeance 8Gb DDR3
250 SSD drive and 1 terabyte regular hard drive

Is this a good computer in 2018 still? Will it be able to handle 4k editing? The value of item I am trading is $900 dollars. Just looking for some advice, thanks!

It's definitely not worth $900. Will it work? Sure, but it's pretty old at this point. You could definitely build a better system for $900.

I completely agree in the years to come that set up won't be very good

Recently just upgraded from a 4770 to a 1700X and take it from me, rendering out videos using Premier Pro is 3 times faster on this CPU, that is fairy cheap now. So I'd let 13 put together a build for you as it'll make your life a hell of a lot easier in the long run.

Yup, got mine for that. 16GB RAM for 138 and some ASRock Killer SLI thing for 90..

Well worth the upgrade.

I got a 1700x for £125 so I had to, and an X370 Gaming Pro Carbon for £70. Paid out the ass for 16GB DDR4 though lol, only downside Still definitely worth it though
