For more than 10 years Videoguys.com, one of the world's leading resellers of video editing and production equipment, has been publishing DIY articles as a service to customers. These guides will help you choose the best system components for your non-linear editing workstation. Our new tech guy, Scott Smith, has completed our much anticipated new DIY11 build. It's a screamer! The goal was to put together a top notch NLE & Streaming machine for around $1,500. Scott did the research and the build is complete and tested. Holy smokes!

Videoguys' System Recommendations for Video Editing

For almost 20 years we've been posting and updating our recommended computer specs for Video editing. Combined with our DIY articles, Videoguys has become the go to resource on the web for this vital information. Of course we also have live people here who are available to answer all your video editing questions and recommend the right gear and software for your needs and budget.

We get asked all the time, “What computer system should I use for Video Editing?”

So, we created this page to give you some basic guidelines. Every month computers get more powerful and less expensive, so the recommendations on this page could become outdated very quickly. We will try our best to keep it up to date but if you see something that doesn't look right or if you're configuring a system that may be somewhat different please e-mail (techguy@videoguys.com) or call the Videoguys at 800-323-2325 and we'd be happy to review your plans. We want to help you make sure you have everything you need to edit and produce great videos. read more...


HP-640w (1)Videoguys Tech Select HPz Workstations for Professionals

Videoguys' Tech Select HP Workstations are custom-configured by our technicians to hit some great price points and still provide you with a machine that we strongly recommend. HP uses only the best components, and these workstations come optimized for digital content creation. They are easily expandable and upgradable which means you'll get a longer useful life out of them. The new HP z840 is the power users choice, and the best dual Xeon solution on the market. We like the z440 single Xeon machines for professionals who don't require as much horsepower, but demand the same level of reliability and stability. If you are a power user on a budget, the z640 can be upgraded to a second Xeon processor down the road. read more...
