    Default Building video editing pc - where to get parts from?

    Evening all, itís been years since I built a pc of my own parts etc and all the sites/ computer fairs I used to go to have ceased trading or moved.

    wheres the best place to get parts individually?

    i want an i5 or i7 processor and nvidia card to get me started off.
    If I canít build it for myself for budget Iíll end up buying some piece of crap off eBay.

    thanks in advance

    Scan in Manchester are generally ok. Had quite a lot of stuff of them over the years and especially when they were at Bowlers
    CCL are ok also, a tad closer to me. went in once with my sons PC and needed a specific graphix card, the guy opened about 5
    boxes till he found the one that fitted the case.

    Ebay is fine but you need to watch out what your buying as usually its full of shiit like all 2 meg sims and not 4 gig in 2.
    they cut corners to make them cheap, but when you look at them for upgrading later it costs you more

    Always used intel processors, ryzen scores well though and unless I was buying i9 chips i7 don’t seem to compare in tables I seen.
    i need a full build, SSD, 1tb storage, case, power etc
