I am looking to build the cheapest desktop I could muster that can handle editing 4k Video's from my DSLR using Adobe Premiere and recording audio using my Focusrite DAW and Cubase.
Trying to keep budget well below $1,400. NO GAMING OR OVERCLOCKING - Just a rock-stable reliable system that can handle that heavy workload and doesn't whine too much.. Will add monitor to price after finding the cheapest 4k monitor I can get away with. Appreciate any suggestions from all you frugal OC'ers!
