Default Recommend Me A Processor/Ram/Motherboard For Editing HD Gaming videos around 1000

Hi guys,

New to the forum hear I'm looking to upgrade my PC as i want to be able to record, edit and render 1080p 60fps gaming footage for YouTube. I have been making YouTube videos for the last 5 years mainly in 1080p wmv files which lose a lot of quality and now wanting to improve my channel I'm in the market for a new processor, motherboard and ram i have around a 1000 to spend give or take depending on what you guys think i need.

I bought my PC about 5 years ago now, having only upgraded the power supply and graphics card in that time. My current set up struggles to record 60fps gameplay when using fraps but seems to be fine when using bandicam but takes around 15 hours to render out a 40 minute video through Adobe Premiere Pro when exporting a H.264 video file which i believe is the only way to export 1080p 60fps video to youtube.

My Current specs are
Graphics Card - EVGA GTX 780
Ram - Corsair 12GB (6x2GB) XMS3 1600MHz
Processor -Intel Core i7 950 (4 x 3.06GHz) 8 MB 4.8GT/s
Power Supply - Corsair Platinum 860W PSU
Motherboard - Asus Rampage II Gene

So what I'm looking for is your recommendations for a much quicker set up I don't have the greatest knowledge when it comes to computer hardware so any help would be great !

I was recommenced this by someone else

Which comes to around 580 but i be willing to pay upwards of a 1000 if it means that i would see greater results.

Thanks Russ

The new Z170 platform mobo's with the i7 Skylake series CPU and couple those with some high end DDR4 3200mhz or higher is were I would start. Then start looking at a new GPU....I would suggest the GTX 980 Ti.
