editing 4k video

OK. So I am a pensioner (and not one of the wealthy ones) so I would like to know if these specs will allow me to edit 4k.
Intel Core I5 8400
Intel Graphics UHD 630
16gb RAM DDR4 2666Mhz
480GB SSD + 1TB HDD
4 x USB 2
4 x USB 3
HDMI Output
Win 10 Pro (64 Bit)

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @chrismog,

 

Yes that can handle 4k. 

You can also ask the store personnel if they can suggest much better in almost the same price. 

 

Regards,

Re: editing 4k video

Which software are you looking to use?  Most software will let you edit with proxies - this means that it will make a lower resolution copy of your videos and use these when editing so that when you move back & forward and apply effects in the video your system is taxed as much then, when you render your edit out, it switched back to the 4k video for the quality.
