[Attachment 56075 - Click to enlarge]
I know i have to buy a new motherboard and memory for newer cpu's, i dont play games, the pc is used mostly for video/photo editting.
my "newbie side" on this subject found some amd cpu's
ryzen 7 2700
ryzen 5 3600
from what i read on reviews the 2700 has more cpu's/threads that are more suitable for video editing but its an older cpu "architecture", both are about same price here.

I love it when a plan comes together!
Go for the 2700 for any 8 core video editing.It will blow away your current one.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
Thanks for the advice johns0, the 2700 was what i found out by reading reviews etc, do you have better suggestions/alternatives?I love it when a plan comes together!
Depends on how much you want to spend,you can buy the 5800x but it probably twice as much or more but better for video editing.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
John, I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and it works pretty well for editing 4k.
No need for proxy/preview files.
What would be a good upgrade for faster render times?
5600X has 6 cores.
3800X has 8 cores.
Both have similar CPU benchmarks of 23,000
Is one better than the other for video editing?
The 3800x is better for video editing.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
B/c more cores ?
Yup.I think,therefore i am a hamster.
