I've just received my scarlet and am looking to buy a new PC specifically for editing the footage in Adobe CS6. I will also be doing some light grading but not in davinci, just in redcine and adobe.
I would like to be able to get the whole setup, software and all for under $5000 but if I go a little over it won't matter. I'm new to this type of PC and have found some candidates just by googling "gaming PC". Would these be able to edit smoothly and reliably with 4K footage.
Thanks very very much for your advice and if you could please post your specs in your responses so I can see what everyone out there is editing on.

Any advixce on graphics cards etc or what I should really be focusing on, RAM etc, I'm just wanting to know where I should be spending my money. Thanks.
