Agent Orange: Friendly fire that keeps on burning.
What are you using as a video editor? My research of this subject tells me that only a very few editors actually make use of a fast GPU. Actually, most don't even make use of multi-cores, to any great extent. A CPU with a fast central core will beat those with multi-cores running at slower speeds. Too much heat slows things down even more as the chip reduces speed to save itself from thermal overload. I settled on 32 Gig of DDR4 RAM, a PCIe NVMe - M.2 SSD, huge heatsink with quiet fans, & I'm just going to use the integral GPU as performance gained by adding a $500 GPU card is minimal with my editor. YMMV
