Need to help my brother build a PC. He says he needs it for video editing software, running VR and maybe some gaming. He said his budget is around AU$2k but I'm thinking that might be overkill for what he needs it for? What sort of parts should he be looking at? Any help is appreciated

I do video editing. Really depends what software he is using and the video files (e.g. codecs, resolution, colour space).

2k will get a decent computer but will "under spec'd" for serious video editing. You can easily spend over 2k just on a CPU and graphics card.

The parts he'd need:
  • Case
  • Power supply
  • Motherboard
  • CPU
  • CPU cooler
  • RAM
  • Graphics card (depends on the software; may get away with onboard graphics)
  • SSD or HDD
A decent PC for video editing would be closer to 4k.
