Hey Guys,

I can’t decide my PC build for video editing with a $600 budget. Since the B550 Motherboard models came out, there’s no sense going backwards to older models and the fact, my last build, was 10 years ago.

The more I research about features, brands, options, the more confusing it is.. Like benchmark tests Gigabyte/Asus/MSI/ASrock, Speeds, Over clocking, etc. Don’t want to spend more than $150 on motherboard.

I want to choose one of the brands obviously reliable (I used Asus mobo in past).

ATX form works with the tower I have, with three case fans. And want to have a Ryzen CPU.

Wifi built in is nice but some say a separate card is better.

It’s not for gaming, but, video capture, video and audio production and video streaming.

Appreciate Your Thoughts!

David D.

Part of the problem is that motherboards are quite expensive at this time [as are a number of parts]
I did a quick check on newegg and a processor, motherboard, video card, and ram was $730. That does not include a ssd/M.2 drive nor does it include a pw supply. Here are the parts I looked at;

You could possibly go cheaper however video editing is processor intensive AND cheap parts are not really up to the stress of high intensity tasks.

Yeah, I appreciate it... I think the cpu speed/models can really be confusing too..

Question! Curious the differences between B550 and B450? What's the upgrades everyone's talking about, cause it's been a long time since I built my last pc.

The 550 chipset is pretty new. It is basically a cheap version of the X570 chipset. If you want a performance system, you go with the X570 chipset.

FWIW I would prefer a high end X470 motherboard to a 550 chipset motherboard however that is personal preference.
Note you must update the bios on a X470 board before you can use a 3xxx series processor.
