I'm looking to do my first build in several years. Trying to figure out the best bang for my buck.


Anyway, I want to edit GoPro videos. Nothing fancy but my current setup takes hours to render! LOL

I'll also use it a a HTPC streaming video content to my TV.


I don't want to go crazy, but I don't want to skimp too much. I need some suggestion please...


Processor: Ryzen 1600?

Ram: 8 or 16GB?

Ram Speed: 2400 or less?

A350 Chip Set MB?


ATX vs mATX form?

HD 1 or 2 TB?

Video card?


I'm not really into overclocking, just want something stable and relatively fast.  I'm no pro, but the old stuff has finally beaten me down.  As I mentioned, it's been a while so I'm trying to get myself back up to date on all the new stuff! LOL  I have no idea what SSD to use, etc, so any input is welcome...


I'm reading I get more performance for better value considering Ryzen 1600 vs Intel i3,5, etc...  Help guide a newbie!!
