Buying the motherboard for extra slots to use 8mb sticks makes no sense. 2x16mb sticks are a slight premium over 4x8s. $10! That mb better bring more to the build. Many others commented that to pass on a PCI m2 ssd is ignorant. With that huge box a Raid hdd setup for back-up is reasonable. I went with a 1 Tb m2 and 4tb hdd I also use an external 6tb. Why get the "K" processor if you aren't going to overclock? The regular i7 comes with the cooling you need! SAVE another $100+ Puget Systems did a nice review of GPU performance with Photoshop. Checkout their test machine! Better build choices. They actually build for professional photographers.

All wrong. First of all it wouldn’t be a Windows based “PC” machine. You have to start with a Mac, no way around that.

I would recommend bench testing: Install CPU, cooler, RAM, Power supply and hook up to a monitor before putting the mobo in the case. Turn in on and see if it POSTs (Power On Self Test). I learned the hard way, Buttoned up everything, hit the power button, and nothing. I learned. One of my favorite quotes is my Mark Twain: "The problem with experience is that it always comes at the end of the job."

I bought an Asus Gaming Laptop with a 1060 Nvidia Gtx card but my screen is 89% SRGB only, does anyone know if i plug my laptop into a 100% Adobe RGB and 100% SRGB Laptop that it will allow me to edit in these colour spaces accurately? ( Asus can't give me an answer) , Thankyou

I haven’t built a computer from scratch since the late 90s. This looks straightforward. I remember back in the day you had to set jumpers to tell the motherboard what type of chip it was.

Love this video, it's great for a complete novice like me. Not many who do these pc build videos (at least most of the ones I've looked through) go over the step by step and showing pictures indicating where things need to be placed on the motherboard etc.

Excellent demonstration of building a DIY system! Everyone that spent 2x more than they needed to for a "custom" system should see this video. I'd add a couple of points, however. You should have cautioned a little more about the danger of static electricity and grounding while handling the components. If you don't want to use a wrist strap grounding wire then just install the power supply first, plug it in (don't turn it on) and the metal case become a good ground. Just touch the case before touching any other component. Second, Ubuntu Linux is an excellent replacement for Windows and is available open source (free). It is no more complicated than Windows to install and has a complete set of professional photo editing (Gimp, Darktable, Raw Therapee) and video editing software (Kdenlive), all open source (free).

Hi. Lee, This is Asim from KTAN, I happen to watch your video few weeks back and it really increased my interest to build my first video editing rig. I followed your guidelines and purchased all the parts from B&H except the GPU (GTX 1070), RAM and Processor. The mother board B&H had was used, GPU is used and everything else in the rig is new. I am still waiting on the processor, which will arrive tomorrow. Once I receive the Processor and from there I will move forward and put the rig together. I will try to shoot the video of rig building and share it on the YouTube.

Hey Awesome video. I am kind of stuck am looking at this exact build? but also the i7- 7800x which requires the x299 MB the cost is nearly the same for chip and MB. and I thought eventually I could upgrade to an I9. I only will be using this build to work on videos in Adobe and live stream youtube/periscope/facebook. and do 4K. would you recommend the new Intel chips or stay with the one you have shown in this video? if so can you please elaborate?

As a seasoned PC builder, this was a little tough to watch lol. You got the job done and that's what counts! Just a tip for next time, install the CPU cooler before installing the motherboard into the case. You'll have a lot more room to work and it'll save you some time. Also, some coolers have a back-plate that goes behind the motherboard.

Nice job. Makes me think I could do this. However, I have a question or two. Why Windows10 vs MacOS? How different is Adobe CC on Windows 10 vs. MacOS? I.e. is there a learning curve. I am about 30% Ps, 30% Lr and 20% Pr. Thanks, and again, nice job.

I don't need to build a computer now but this tutorial has opened my eyes to considering it as an option next time I need a new one, so big thank you for this tutorial. However, I'm on MacOS and to me a tutorial on how to build a hackintosh might make sense as that's the OS I'm on, but who knows, maybe if Apple screw things up ... and when that happens I'm ready for building my own PC.
