Bang for the buck

Can you suggest a good PC for multimedia editing that does not cost me a fortune and doesn’t hang, drop in frame rate or stutter while video and photo editing?

Bipin, everyone wants devices with high performance to cost ratio. However, better goods require a higher investment, there is just not getting around it. And multimedia editing and processing is a power devouring job that requires PCs with great computational speed and power, higher RAM, better storage capacity and big screen. Every single component is pricey and the whole setup will definitely not come cheap.

iMacs and Microsoft surface Studio are good options. However, they are pricey and definitely may not fall in the radar of your choices. So, I recommend you to build your own PC by assembling the components that are individually capable of withstanding the workload. 

PC setup with Intel Core i7 7700K processor, Nvidia GetForce GTX 1060 4GB 

graphics card, MSI Z270  series Motherboard, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, 23” monitor with Full HD resolution, 256GB SSD with at least 1Gbps speed are minimum requirements for multimedia editing. This setup can be managed well within an investment of Rs 150,000. Not just for multimedia editing, this setup will perform well with intense gaming without hiccups. If you can invest more, you can opt for components with higher capabilities in the suggested module.
