Hello everybody. My name is Leela. I am from Sri Lanka. This is my first post on TweakTown.

I can afford both configurations. But I am having some dilemma as to which one would be better.


My usage will be video editing and uploading to youtube, using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Rendering 3D, and some light gaming of games such as AC Unity, Battlefield Hardline and GTA V.


I used pcpartpicker for convenience only. I will not be purchasing from the online shops.


I will make my purchase from the computer retailers in my locality.


I would greatly appreciate some advice on a new PC build since I have never built a PC before.


Thank you all for your time.
