Almost any modern computer can handle tasks like web browsing, working on excel sheets or play basic games. But when it comes to an intensive task like video editing, even expensive pre-built systems or laptops are put down to knees.
If you are professional video editor you will need the horsepower in your system for high demanding softwares like Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Vegas Pro or Lightworks. You will need a good CPU to render the video in least time possible and plenty of RAM to edit video in real time.
The components we have selected for this video editing PC will make sure you can edit a wedding video and render it smoothly as well as complete all other tasks like photo editing or even a little bit of gaming on the side.
Best Configuration for Video Editing PC Build Under 80000 INR in India for 2019
AMD Ryzen 7 1700 (8C/16T)
Msi B450M Mortar (mATX)
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 3000 MHz (8GBx2)
Kingston A400 480GB SATA SSD
Storage (Game Drive)
WD Blue 2TB HDD
Inno3d GeForce GTX 1660 Twin X2 6GB
Cooler Master MWE 550W 80+ White
Corsair SPEC-04 (ATX)
Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 1700
For the CPU we have gone in favor of the red team. The Ryzen 7 1700 is a first gen Ryzen CPU with 8 cores and 16 threads. The prices of 1st gen processors have fallen and for ₹16,500 this beast processor is an excellent deal.
The reason for choosing an AMD processor for this build is in video editing, we need more cores and Hyper-threading. If we look at Intel, in this price range we can only get a Core i5 which will have only 6 cores and 6 threads.
If you are a professional video editor or you produce any type of content, Ryzen will be the best choice for you because of its edge in productivity workloads.

Motherboard: MSI B450M Mortar
Choosing the right motherboard is a crucial step in PC building, as one can easily overspend on the motherboard. For our Ryzen 7 1700, we have chosen a B450 chipset motherboard by MSI, the B450M Mortar.
This motherboard has the AM4 socket which will support the next generation of Ryzen CPUs so it a future proof option. There are 4 DIMM slots on this motherboard so you can upgrade the Ram in future easily.
Other than at, it houses these slots:
1 x PCIe 3.0 x16
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
2 x M.2
1 x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C
1 x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A
6 x USB 3.1 Gen1
6 x USB 2.0
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB 3000 MHz
For Ram, we have decided to go with 16GB of G.Skill’s Ripjaws V DDR4 memory running at 3000 MHz. For this we will get 2 x 8GB modules as it is cheaper than buying a single 16GB module. Also, with 2 modules we will be running dual channel memory which will offer slightly better performance.
For Intel CPUs, Ram speed doesn’t provide a noticeable difference in performance. But as we are planning to build an AMD based system, it is recommended to go with at least 3000 MHz or higher speed ram and also run it in a dual channel for the best results.
Storage: 480GB SSD + 2TB HDD
For the primary drive, we have selected a Kingston A400 480GB Sata SSD. This will function as the boot drive and apart from Windows 10, you can store frequently used softwares on the SSD to improve app opening times.
Getting an SSD is a necessary step in 2019. Windows boot times and overall system functions are so much faster with an SSD compared to a traditional spinning hard drive. With the 480GB SSD you can render videos so much faster. Once a project is complete you can toss it onto the large HDD for future.
For the large file storage, we have selected the WD Blue 2TB Hard drive. This will function as the storage for keeping large project files onto the system for future use.
Graphics Card: Inno3D GeForce GTX 1660 Twin X2 6GB
The GPU is where a lot of people skimp on while building a video editing PC. A graphics card might not provide a lot of difference in video editing workload but a good one is required to run the footage in real time while editing. And while rendering a good amount of Vram is used, 4GB is minimum.
So we have decided to go with the GeForce GTX 1660. This card comes at a reasonable price of ₹18,750 and is worth every rupee. The performance is really good and 6GB of video memory will be enough for today as well as the years to come.
Power Supply: Cooler Master MWE 550 80+ White
For a lot of average users out there a PSU doesn’t make a real world difference to the PC but it is very important to get a reliable power supply. It powers all the components of the system and any failure could result in damage to the components.
Considering the balanced nature of this PC, we have selected the MWE 550 SMPS from Cooler Master. It is a 550-watt unit with an 80 Plus certification. You can choose to go with an 80 Plus Bronze, Silver or even a higher efficiency if you can spend some extra amount.
Cabinet: Corsair Spec-04
A cabinet is what houses all the components of your PC. How the whole outward looks and aesthetic of your gaming PC turns out will depend on the PC case you choose. We have selected the Corsair Spec-04 cabinet for this wedding video editing PC.
So, that’s all about CPU and now let’s talk a bit about other main accessories which are a good quality monitor and keyboard, mouse.
Monitor: LG 24MP88HV
For monitor, our choice is LG’s Best Full HD monitor with excellent viewing angles which is LG 24MP88HV which is a 24-inch monitor which offers the highest color accuracy in this budget price.
