    Mid range build for video editing

    I am looking at building a computer to edit video from GoPro and other cameras. Would the mid range build be a good choice? Is there any other things that I would need to add to get the computer up and runing hardware wise, such as heat sinks or case? Is there a place I can save some money and spend it wisely in other areas such as video card? I am not sure what I am forgetting as it has been a while since I have built a computer.

    Thanks,
    Walter

    The more money you throw at it, the better it will be - less time needed to edit and render videos.

    All editing software needs a good CPU. See http://www.anandtech.com/show/10337/...-to-10-cores/6 eg R15 multi-threaded is a good indicator.

    A lot of editing software can also use "hardware acceleration" to assist the CPU. See http://www.anandtech.com/bench/GPU15/1231

    And third, a lot of ram is useful. Especially for large files eg 4K.

    Budget? Country? Preferred shop(s)? Editing software?

    What video editing software do you use? That will have an impact on what kind of graphics card you need to get.

    Here's a good resource on which power supplies are trustworthy:
