Hello to you all!
I have a question for you.
I am an editor and i need a new system, cause my current one has it's problems. I currently edit in a 4 year old i7, 16gb ram, AMD 7870 2gb. It was pretty decent since it started dying.
Anyways, now i am in a situation where I am thinking to make a purchase.
I am in between a workstation maybe Dell or Hp with a Xeon 6 core or an i7 skylake 32 gb ram and quadro k2200 4gb. I guess that this will serve me well. I do mostly edit HD or 4k from my sony cameras, meaning XAVC- s, I do multicams, though not everyday and i do color correct and play a lot with blurs, mask etc. I use adobe most of the time and some Davinci Resolve.
I don't need a rocket machine. I know that i can't afford it. But i can spend around 3-3.500euros on a system. I don't want a DIY system cause since i was a kid i had problems.
And now the big question. Windows branded workstation or imac 5k maxxed out. ( I should say that i have read some comments against the imac for the Adobe CC stuff.) Please help.
