Forums - PC Discussion - In 2019, I'm Buying a New PC. (Video capture and editing)

Hi, guys.

In 2019, I'm buying a new PC.  A little history here.  I've been using Macs since 1993.  My current iMac is 9 years old.  Time for an upgrade?  I think so.  I cannot justify the cost of a Mac anymore, and I haven't cared for the layout of the Mac OS since System 8.6.  But I'm making a long story long.  More than likely, I'll be running Windows 10.  Does Window 10 "out of the box" comes with some kind of video capture and editing options?  Obviously, I'll have more gaming options on a PC vs. a Mac, and there is a fair chance I'd like to capture and edit gameplay videos.

I don't have Win10, but I know that it doesn't come with a video editing program, although there are some free ones available from the Windows Store (which I obviously don't know how good or bad they are).

You'll need to find some researh on the net.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Actually there seems to be an app called Video Editor in Windows 10. I don't know how much editing you can do with it though, but it's there.

You can capture video with Game Bar (press Windows Key + G) in addition to talking pics (press Windows Key+Alt+PrtSc). Might I ask what your specs are looking like?

I've never built a PC in my life.  But so far, what I want built is based on this:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883794768

More than likely it would be cheaper building a PC from the ground up based on similar specs in the link.  But I do want to make sure I pick quality components.  It's a work in progress mainly based on price. I'm hoping to spend no more than $800 including a monitor.

Good luck

I'm planning to buy a prebuilt in 2019 with at least a RTX 2080ti, 32 GB RAM and a i7 processor.


I'll build a second one sometime in 2020 once I'm more financially stable - my goal is to get whatever is the strongest GPU (non Titan of course) from nvidia, whatever comes after 2080 series, 64 GB RAM and a i9 Processor.

I'll make the one mentioned above a video editing PC while the i9 processor one my primary gaming PC in the future.

From those premades at Newegg, I suggest this one if you want to stay below 800$ including the monitor: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883102537

At 630$, it would leave you 170$ for a new monitor. The 1050 ain't too powerful at gaming, but considering high-end gaming doesn't seem to be the priority right now it should do fine for now and could easily be upgraded later on.



Well, guess what?  I lied.  I'm not getting a new PC in 2019.  I'm getting it this month.  I just pulled the trigger on one through Newegg.  Similar to the one I posted the link to, it's the:

Lenovo Gaming Desktop Legion Y520T-25ICZ (90JB003HUS) Intel Core i5 8th Gen 8400 (2.80 GHz) 8 GB DDR4 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Windows 10 Home 64-Bit


https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16883794900

After tax, I paid $685.  Yes, there are more powerful systems out there, but it's much newer and faster than what I have now while not breaking the bank.  Now, I'm looking at an ASUS monitor that's going to run me about $140.  Any other suggestions?

So was the PC a good buy?  And how does it compares to the one I originally looked at:

First of all, congrats on your purchase, I hope it gives you many hours of fun. What monitor are you looking for? If you can, try to get an IPS monitor (nowadays, there are a few that are quite cheap), to enjoy the better colours.

As for the comparison with your previous build... you win with your CPU, but lose with the GPU.

I was starting to figure that out more and more as I'm doing research.  Still trying to wrap my head around the numbers when trying to compare apples to oranges (processors by different manufacturers).  But if I understand correctly, the CPU is more important in this case when considering a GPU upgrade in the future.  Would this be the correct line of logic?  And I'm looking at buying this monitor:
