From all I have seen on different forums and knowing a few folks that have upgraded to the Z370 platform I believe you are on the road to a very worthwhile performance upgrade......Good luck with your new system.

I haven't purchased anything yet as I wanted to do some research to make sure I would actually see a performance difference and get some different opinions.

For editing purposes, 8-core Ryzen is probably better choice. Ryzen also runs much cooler, Intel CPU's are very hot. Additionally AM4 platform is generally much better as NVME drive does not cause bottleneck. You should also buy separate video card, even low end is better than Intel's integrated.

Thanks I will research Ryzen.  I hadn't considered that before.  I also already have other components in my present computer.  EVGA GTX 1070 video card, 1000 power supply and 3 SSD's.

What type of SSD:s?

Threadripper is also possibility if you are going to do heavy editing.

That may do some difference then if you plan to put M.2 SSD too.
