Building a PC on a super tight budget
I have a degree in CS, but I'm super behind the times on the hardware market, so I could really use your help:
I'm building (re-building?) a PC for HF Express. As I enter the video field, I'm presently only doing basic editing (trimming, keying, text overlays, etc). Sadly my existing machine (based on an older AMD APU) can't handle playing a clip in the trimmer, and takes 20 minutes to render a 30 second video clip with keying, so I think I'm going to have to upgrade.
I blew all my budget (and some) on studio gear, so I have to keep this build tight.
What I have already:
- Case I can hijack
- Drives for storage
- A pitifully small SSD (big enough I believe)
- Optical drive
- A questionable power supply
- Win 10
By my reckoning, I need the following:
- Graphics card
- Possibly a replacement power supply depending on the demand
So, what would you all suggest for some hardware that I can get smooth playback on a green screen composite shot, and reasonable render times, while still keeping the price as low as possible?
Thank you so much!
