    Advice Suggestions for New Video Editing PC

    Hi everyone. This year I decided to get myself a GoPro and start doing some videos. I got a good deal on a Hero 7 that came with a bunch of accessories. I've already done a couple videos, but now I'm faced with a problem - my current PC (an HP All-in-One) doesn't have the specs to edit the videos.

    I know there's a graphic card shortage out there, so I had ordered a CyberPower pre-built PC. Unfortunately it came with a really crappy mobo in it and I had to return it. I figured pre-built would only work if I knew the components that were in the PC before I bought it, but most of them don't display that type of info so it's like a crap shoot.

    I thought maybe if I just got another all in one with better specs that would work, but most of the people I talked to said it would be better just to build my own PC so I could get the components I really needed. The problem with that is trying to find a graphics card for the build and so far I haven't seen any cards that are available.

    So someone recommended coming here and asking the community what they would suggest or recommend because they may have ideas or advice on things I'm unaware of. Whatever recommendations I would need a PC with the specs to edit videos, whether in Davinci Resolve or some other capable video editing program.

    I look forward to your comments and thank you for taking the time to read my post and help me out.

    Maybe a pre-owned Xeon workstation? I bought one a few weeks ago and just ordered another this morning. If you do some searching, they can be found really cheap! I went with the Dell Precision T5600 series but there are many models on sites like eBay to choose from.

    With prices so high right now this seemed like the best solution without spending a fortune. Just my opinion.

    What are you using to edit video and what resolution are you using ie hd, 4k as it makes a difference

    I was trying to use Davinci Resolve (version 17). I have no interest in 4K. I figure 1080p is good enough for my videos.
