Help with New Desktop PC Choice Please

Hi guys,
I'm upgrading my desktop PC and looking at the following two options. My main use would be for video editing.

  1. PC Casegear build for the following build:
    PCCG Ryzen Professional System

- AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with Wraith Prism
- MSI B450M Mortar Motherboard
- Corsair Vengeance LPX CMK16GX4M2A2400C16 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 Black
- Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WindForce OC 6GB
- Samsung 860 EVO 2.5in SATA SSD 500GB
- Western Digital WD Black 2TB WD2003FZEX
- Corsair RM550x Gold 550W Power Supply
- Fractal Design Define Mini C Case White
- Microsoft Windows 10 Home 32bit/64bit USB Drive
- Standard assembly
- 2 Year Warranty


  1. Dell Inspiron 5000MT Gaming Desktop $1873 from JB HiFi
    Key Features
    Intel® Core™ i7 8700 (6-Core/12-Thread, 12MB Cache, up to 4.6GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology)
    Dual Storage with 1TB 7200 rpm HDD + 256GB M.2 SSD
    16GB RAM
    NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5
    SD Card Reader
    802.11ac + Bluetooth v4.1
    2 x USB 2.0 Ports
    6 x USB 3.0 Ports
    1 x USB-C Ports
    Windows 10 Home

What are your thoughts on the two options?
I'm assuming the PC Gear build is superior in performance to the Dell?
Would you change anything on the PC Gear Build?

    • I'll see if i can make a PCPP bundle

      • same build is $2500 at PCPP $700 more

    • +2

      No thanks. Never had a Mac and not starting now.

  • I'd take the Dell, I think that's a much better buy. Single thread performance of Intel CPU's are streets ahead of the AMD, and even today, not everything is effectively multithreaded.

  • +1

    For video editing, you may also look into AMD GPU.

  • If you can wait for another 10% or 20% deal, this should be pretty nice. I believe the 1920x would be much better than either CPU above thanks to (substantially) more cores? Not super familiar with video editing so fact check that.

    RAM's likely slower, but if it does make a difference sell this stuff on ebay/gumtree then buy another set.

    Storage will be a much smaller amount, so make sure to grab some more ($50 for a tb HDD, or $80 for a 500gb SSD)

    Everything else should be fine. GPU is vastly better then either of the systems youisted above.

    Even as is this is good value for money, though I'd advise waiting for the 10% coupons to get maximal value for money (should bring it to the price of the first system, despite the big CPU jump)

    If I've gotten anything wrong, feel free to correct me.
