Hey Mates,

If any experienced builders can help me that would be awesome!

I am getting into 4K video editing, and everytime I load a 4K video my current computer, it gets stuck. So I need a new build. I will be using Adobe Premier and After effects.

Please help me get the best bang for the buck. my budget is around $1500 give or take. Thanks in advance, for your time.
