    Question Advice on whether to upgrade from i5-3570k PC for 4k video work

    Hello

    I'm not a professional video editor, but I do spend a fair bit of my time working with 2.7k and 4k video editing, or photography work for pleasure. I've currently assembled the following and will be doing a rebuild over the next week or so.

    Intel i5-3570k
    16GB RAM
    980gtx video card (newly upgraded from 760gtx)
    SSD HDs
    Acer 4k video display (new)


    I've recently upgraded the video card and screen but was wondering whether my CPU (or my ram for that matter) are a significant bottleneck. Any advice greatly appreciated! I'm a bit lost on where CPUs and Mobos are these days.

    It may depend on what operating system you you intend to use.
    It may depend on what video editing software you intend to use.

    You might get some idea about your CPU from https://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

    I don't know the answer. It depends on how fast or slow you are prepared to work with.
