    Hi, I need to upgrade my very old PC to one that will best handle some simple video editing.

    I have a limited budget and so below are the 2 highest spec builds available to me and I am hoping that someone could advise on which one is the most appropriate for my needs. Both have the same SSD drives and RAM so the confusion is which CPU/Graphics are best.

    I fully appreciate that there are probably lots of factors that can be taken into consideration and its probably a question of pros and cons but I do have limited technical knowledge about computer specs and I would appreciate any guidance based on these two options.

    I'm sure that both are adequate for general computing needs but I would like to know which is more 'suitable' for video editing.

    Option 1: Intel Core i5-9400F 2.9GHz (6 cores, 6 threads) NVIDIA GT 710 1GB

    Option 2: AMD Ryzen 5 2400G 3.6GHz (4 cores, 8 threads) Vega 11 Graphics

    Thank you for any help given.

    A detailed description of the hardware(motherboard, processor, hard drive, RAM, graphics, power supply, etc.) you currently have in your "very old PC" would be helpful.

    Just to clarify, I am not upgrading my old PC but purchasing a new one. Two new builds are available to me on my budget and I would appreciate comments on the suitability of the two options for simple video editing.

    You need to post exact specs for each system; ie exact motherboard used, exact ram, exact pw supply, etc, etc.
    Next video editing/rendering is processor intensive not video card intensive.
