NEED PC Build Help!

by Strawwbury / May 19, 2015 9:20 AM PDT

Hello. I'll start off by saying I am extremely new to PC building, but was told I would get the most bang for my buck if I built my own. So I have almost 0 experience. I need a fast and smooth computer mainly for xbox recording, video editing, photoshop, and uploading/rendering. Also needs to be able to run multiple programs at once smoothly. My budget is $500-700, but the cheaper the better. Let me know which parts would be the most important for my build, which ones wouldn't, etc. Also, I don't even know where to build a PC at to begin with. Thanks for all advice and info in advance. Please work with me here Happy

It's for video editing/rendering/uploading. Not for gaming.

You'll need a good GPU for that recording.

For the dollar, the Red Devil is likely to be as good as it gets.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
