Video editing is an intensive process that requires a high-performance PC and a discrete graphics card that will facilitate conversion and rendering of raw footage. A good video editing PC also requires plenty of RAM to run all the video editing software and a multi-core processor to make the process as fast as possible and prevent freezing as you edit.
Given the requirements, a barebones gaming PC will not get the job done. That is why Fierce PC offers a variety of PCs designed to handle the demands of video editing for different budgets and requirements.
What to Consider When Buying a Video Editing PC
Most of the processing work will be done by the processor and the GPU. It’s important to go for a multi-core processor that will swiftly handle the process and prevent frustrations that come with freezing while you edit.
We have a variety of processors from both Intel and AMD include the latest generation quad, hexa, and octa-core high-end CPUs from Intel.
Ultra-fast processors guarantee optimal performance as you complete the video editing tasks.
For heavy video editing tasks, you need sufficient amounts of RAM. The type of RAM is not a concern but the quantity. For a video editing PC, you need a minimum of 8GB. However, the most recommended is about 16GB of RAM. The more, the merrier.
Video editing and gaming have more or less the same demands in terms of graphics cards. You need a quality graphics card. With video editing tasks, the GPU will take on a fair amount of the work-load. For heavier video editing jobs, it’s critical to have a dedicated graphics to maximise on power.
When choosing a graphics card, go for one that is designed specifically for video editing. NVidia and AMD have great options you can consider. If you prefer to go for other brands, choose a graphics card with at least 4GB of VRAM.
You need plenty of storage to store your raw and completed footage. In this case, large capacity SSDs are preferred because they are faster and less frustrating to work with, especially when you're working with large media files. You also have the option of going for an HDD option. But these are slower and can affect performance. Instead, you can opt for an HDD/SDD combo which is more affordable and doesn't lose most of the speed.
Video editing requires that you move huge files from various recording devices to your PC. This can be time-intensive, especially when your PC doesn't have the right ports. For video editing PCs, the bare minimum should be a 3.0 USB port.
At Fierce PC we also have video editing PCs armed with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports capable of transferring up to 10GB/s. The faster the transfer rates, the sooner you can start editing your content.
Things change fast, and you don't want to have to buy a new PC a few years down the line. By purchasing an expandable PC, you can keep up with the changes by buying new and more advanced components and adding them to your PC.
