The time has come to build an editing workstation. Lately, I have been having many issues with my Macbook Pro slowing down while trying to edit photos in Adobe Lightroom as well as editing 1080p and 4K footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Don’t get me wrong, the Macbook Pro is still an amazing machine but it doesn’t have the horsepower to keep up with my increasing demoing workload. This is where the PC comes in.

It’s been many years since I decided to embark on the PC building expedition. It was something that I enjoyed for a long time but the inconsistencies and issues with building a PC got to me and that’s why I’ve been Mac only for several years. In the video below, I’ll show you what parts are going into the build and why I chose them. Also down below is the parts list if you’re wanting to see current pricing or to pick on up for yourself.

This is just a PC build video, no benchmarking done, sorry! Perhaps the next PC build I do I will include more specs and benchmark results.
