Powering and Cooling Your Photo and Video Editing Computer
We use large, efficient CPU coolers to silently and efficiently cool your CPU. We also use Corsair HX Platinum Series power supplies, which are the ideal combination of true silence, power, and ultimate reliability backed by a 10-year manufacturer warranty. We swap out every case fan in the Photo Video PC with a silent high quality Nexus or Noctua fan. The case and case layout were chosen for airflow, heat dissipation, and noise isolation.
Photoshop and Video Editing GPU Cards
For most professionals, we recommend GTX series video cards for editing photos and videos. Photoshop artists and video editors that work with a lot of the latest filters and/or 3D animation may benefit from NVIDIA® Quadro® cards. Our ASUS Strix NVIDIA® GTX video cards are designed to be quiet and run near silent or even in a fanless mode (depending on load).
Best PC for Photography, Web Design, Video Editing, and Art
Our Photo and Video Editing PC is the absolute best choice for photography, web design, and all but the most serious, professional-level video editing. This photo and video computer is designed specifically for the professional photographer or media artist, and semi-professional to freelance level videographer or video editor.

Important Photo and Video Editor Considerations
The following are important considerations when planning out a system for Photoshop or for Video Editing.
- RAM | 16GB RAM is the bare minimum amount of RAM for Photoshop, with even more needed for processing video
- Hard Drive Dedicated to OS + Software | Having a fast hard drive set for software will deliver fast startup times and greater reliability from Windows
- Scratch Drive | Having a fast M.2 drive or SSD set up as a scratch drive will stop bottlenecks
- Large Data Drive | Photos and Video take a lot of space - we recommend at least one large data drive
- Quality Photo Video Graphics Card | We recommend GTX 10XX cards for most photo and video professionals and Nvidia Qaudro cards for those doing a lot of 3D animation
- Thunderbolt 3 | Thunderbolt is an important option for video editing since many current and upcoming video devices use Thunderbolt
- Multi-Monitor Support | Enhance your video workflow with multiple monitors for greater access to your timeline and preview screens
- Socket 2011v3 | Socket 2066 offers up to 44 available PCIe 3.0 lanes and Dual Socket 2011v3 E5 offers 80 PCIe 3.0 lanes - eliminating PCIe-bus slow-downs in your Photo Video PC
- Number of Usable x16 PCIe Slots | If your goal is serious Video Editing, the number of usable x16 slots in a PC is an important consideration because many video devices require full x16 to run seamlessly. Please note: you will need to use a 40 lane CPU in our Photo Video PC (Intel i7-5930K and above) in order to utilize both x16 slots. If you need 3 usable x16 slots, you will want to check out our Professional Video Editing Workstation.
