New build budget of £1000ish!

Hi. i'm new to tek syndicate but I have found a lot of the videos and information on here super helpful so thank you!

I'm planing on building a new pc for work. (This will be my first build from scratch) It will mainly be used to run Adobe CC (Photoshop and Illustrator) but will also be used for some video editing and a little gaming on the side. I'm wanting to stay around the £1000 mark but I am flexible. Just wondering if someone could cast a critical eye over my shopping list and see if there are any major faults with it! I was not going for the cheapest build and was also looking to future proof a bit as more heavy video editing may be needed in the future.

I was also wanting to add a bluetooth pci card so any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks in advance

This build looks totaly fine to me.

idk what kind of gamer you are, maybe concidering a slightly better gpu could be a good idea. 

Maybe you could find a used GTX780 for cheap somewhere, could be nice to have an option to utilize cuda rendering in adobe premiere, Adobe seems to like cuda. But offcourse rendering on the 4790K will also be great, if not better.

Thats great, i'm not a huge PC gamer usually stick to consoles but I occasionally play on PC. Nothing that graphically intense, mainly indies.Wasn't really sure at all where to start with the GPU as I know I wont be hammering it. Thanks for the advice though I will have a look out for a GTX780 at a good price.

ah well, if you dont realy care too much about graphical intensive games, then indeed a nice midrange gpu will be totaly fine.

If you dont realy use cuda rendering, then i think that AMD cards will indeed be a better bang for the buck to be honnest. i just looked up the new prices in the UK for a GTX780, but they are wayy too expensive, unless you could find a used one offcourse.


I personaly realy like this card

Sapphire 290 TriX OC is still a beast of a gaming card, probably a bit overkill for your needs, But if you use open CL for some of your workloads, then this would be an awesome card.

the build looks nice, but there are a few thing you need to consider...... 
1) atleast go for a 16gb/32gb kit as your worked is mostly based on videoediting/photoshop yadayadayada.....

2) also ive had a few issues with asrock motherboards, so personally i wouldn't recommend it id rather go for much better options like msi, gigabyte, asus etc........etc......

3)try to get a r9 280x as the prices are about the same as 280 

4) donot skimp on PSU. i have the exact same PSU and i wouldnt say its the best neither is it the worse...... try getting some nicer PSU something which has a gold rating on it.

I've used the same power supply with no issues.  It's a decent budget power supply.
