Looking to build a video editing system for my daughter and am trying to decide on the CPU first.
She will be running CS6 Production Premium, MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) Matlab and a few other smaller programs. Windows 7 64bit Pro OS.
I’ll use an SSD drive for the OS and Caviar HDDs for the other programs, editing and storage.
I’m looking at Intel Core i7 5930K Haswell-E 6 core and am wondering if waiting for the Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake-S Quad core would be a better idea. I am also wondering about the 6 cores vs the 4 cores (as more cores are better for vid editing) I also looked at the 5960K with its 8 cores but at $1000.00, the price is 1/3 of her max budget.
She is not a professional yet (1.5 more years of school) but makes quite a bit of video and has saved up the money for a nice system that will carry her through graduation and a bit beyond.
Your suggestion, input or comments are appreciated,
