I'm looking at buying or building a computer for gaming (like mincraft with mods, so it would have to have good frame rate) and video editing. I was looking for a computer for under $1000. If anyone Can help, Please do so.Thanks

You can build a very good pc for around 1000.  That can more than handle minecraft and video editing head on over to pcpartspicker or magicmicro and build your new computer. !  Once you have picked something out.  Feel free to come back and provide links or the parts and we can give you any other suggestions.

Get a basic SSD 120 gig on which you store your operating system, your video edit programs, and maybe your video scratch folder. If you can afford it, get a bigger SSD to ensure you can use it for a scratch folder. Whichever game you are playing the most, install that to your SSD as well. Do not get used to installing all games to it however, as you will quickly run out of space if using a small SSD. When you tire of whatever game you are playing, delete it from the SSD (backup the save files) and install whatever other game you intend to play to it. If you get a large SSD, you can allow yourself more than one game on your SSD at a time.

 

Get a half way decent graphics card. Look to spend at least $150. on one, and ideally a bit more. If you are able, something like the latest Geforce 970 will rock your gaming experience for a good while, but that may break your budget.

 

By far the most important thing however if you are serious about video editing is RAM. If you are editing HD video and especially if those videos are more than five minutes long, you are going to want a LOT of RAM. I have a friend who edits HD video professionally. He has 48 gig of RAM on his system and he complains that it is not enough. (If you are editing NTSC video, 8 GIG RAM will be just fine.) Do not have less than 16 GIG, do your absolute utmost to have 32 GIG, and try real hard to have more.

 

If your budget ultimately constrains you to starting out with only 16 GIG RAM, make sure you get a motherboard that can handle more, and buy your RAM such that you do not fill all of the RAM slots (buy 8 GIG RAM cards). That way you can expand your memory later when you realize how crucial more of it is.
