Hey! I'm thinking about getting started on youtube. I wanna know what you guys think about these pc specs and software. I7-4770k, gigabyte z87-ud4h mobo, evga GeForce gtx 650 ti boost 2gb, 8gb ram, blue snowball mic and mirillis action recording software. Feel free to express your opinions! I want to know if I'll have problems with it.
Reeks of prebuilt. You don't need a i7 unless you are rendering-and by rendering I mean HEAVY rendering, as in, your own VFX-and the 650 ti BOOST is a horrible and unbalanced card. Build your own computer. You can get one that will perform twice as good in games for probably less money. Which brings up what's next:
What is your budget? By the specs, I'm guessing no less than $800, right?
And yes I do know the price is a little different than what I said
The build I linked kills this. You dont have alot to spend on a graphics card because your spending waaaay to much on an overpriced i7. You dont need an i7. 32GB ssd is too small, trust me in on 30GB right now.
That may be true but I'm not going to be using amd CPUs
I'm going to be using intel. If the i7 is overkill then there's this http://pcpartpicker....nd32/saved/1XDY
And the ssd is just for the os
Fanboyism much? Your GPU is much more important than your CPU in general gaming, and if you were to get an AMD CPU, you could easily get a better GPU than the GTX 660.
And you'll find that it's not as simple as "the SSD is just for the OS". There are tons of things that have to be stored on the OS drive, such as the page file, hibernation, application data, etc. Many applications even require you to uncompress the entire install package to the OS drive before you can install it. 32GB won't cut it.
Seriously, take our advice, because we know what's best in terms of tech. Right now you seem adamant on several unwise decisions.
First it would be helpful to know what programs you're using. I assume you're using AfterFX + 3DSMax as well as some games.
Second what type videos are you planning on uploading? Like extremely serious VFX? If you are, you're gonna need a high end GPU as well. 3DSMax render speeds can be significantly boosted using GPU rendering instead of CPU rendering (only available on nVidia GPU's). I also believe Adobe AfterFX can use CUDA as well but I'm not 100% sure on that.
Either way, you don't want to spend to much money on the CPU and not enough money on the GPU. They are equally important in both video editing and gaming.
You don't have a big enough budget to spend on an i7, and i5's suck at video editing (4 cores and no HT). AMD FX 8350 is gonna be the best CPU for your money.
I went with 16 GB of RAM because if you're rendering some video it can easily take up a bunch of RAM. I'm guessing you won't use more than say 12 GB though.
