What's the best budget gaming/video editing and rendering PC?

I am a small Youtuber under 100 subs and I need to build a computer on a budget that is good enough to run famous games out there but can also edit and render videos easily or close as I have trouble editing with slow computers... I have a 2gb ram and quad core laptop from acer...

    If you could bump up the price to $500 to $600 what can you upgrade on that PC or replace?
  5. Best answer
    Well if you include an OS its up at 550 bucks. There really isnt anything worth upgrading to in that budget, maybe a 1050Ti over a 1050.

    what about the i3? can you compare the pentium in the pc part list with an i3 6100 please?
    and what do you think is better?
  8. Best answer
    the Pentium has a score within 3% of the i3-6100, it's 3.5 GHz with no turbo boost, 3MB of L3 cache (instead of 4), but is hyperthreading:

    overall performance:



    And it keeps up with an i5-7600 feeding UHD frames to sli GTX 980ti
