    I wonder if anyone can recommend a good computer that can handle 4K editing and is also good for gaming?
    I have an oculus rift which I would like to use as well.

    I purchased an iMac 5k two weeks ago but returned it as I didn't think it was that great for editing ? It's so pricey for what it can actually do?

    I have been recommended this computer by PC World? I'm not great with specs and stuff so would really appreciate some help?
    It's an Alpha 1080 - intel skylake gaming pc

    What do you guys think?
    Would this be good for 4K editing my phantom 4 videos? Also good for games and oculus rift ?

    Don't go crazy I did a NXZT self build and a 6600k skylake, couple of evos, 16GB ddr4, GTX 970 plays and renders 4K fine.

    The 5k iMac is perfect for editing as long as you boost the RAM and get the best graphics card with max RAM.

    May I ask why you felt it wasn't up to the task? Software? Just price?

    Gaming, OTOH, isn't a strength of Mac OS.
