Hi everyone, first post so please be gentle if I'm asking stupid stuff, so here I go. I have a friend who builds computers professionally and he has offered to build my next machine primarily to use Vegas Pro, I have 12 at the moment and TBH don't know if 13 is worth the upgrade for my usage, I now use a lot of 4k video and want the new PC to handle it hopefully without using Proxy files my budget is £800($1200) any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Here is a starting point. Depending on your budget choose one of the following processors: Intel I7 6800k 6 core, 6850k 6 core, 6900k 8 core, 6950x 10 core. Motherboard to support those processors will be LGA 2011-3 Socket X99 Chipset. Choose one of these graphic cards: Radeon R9 390, R9 390X, R9 Fury, R9 FuryX. Get at least 16 GB of DDR4 ram (more if possible). Get at least a 200GB SSD for Windows and programs to start quickly. Get at least a 1 GB SATA HD to store current project video files and another HD to render videos to. Others can chime in on specific brands and models.

If you can up your budget to about $1500 you can get those items. New Egg had the CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1510LQ on sale for $1299 last week that had the six core I7 5820K, R9 390X , 16 GB DDR4, and 250 GB SSD/2 TB HD. Exactly what you're looking for. The price has returned to $1499 now but could possibly drop back down again sometime soon. The CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1520 is esentially the same but with a six-core I7 6800k for $1549.
