Recommend a PC for video editing in Premier Pro CC


I'm looking to get a PC for video editing in Premier Pro CC. I was doing some research around Cyber Monday but got a little confused with all the options.

It seems to come down to either a work station that is designed for video editing predominately or something more generalist that could also perform other tasks like VR gaming. I'm not into VR Gaming at present but would like if I make the investment now that it would be capable of running something like the Vive Pro down the line.

I heard Chill Blast make good video editing PCs so they have made the following suggestions to me

Video editing only workhorse
Intel Core i9 / Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060/ £2750

Generalist Editing and Gaming
AMD Ryzen Threadripper / Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 / £2650

They also said that the Ryzen isn't a great chip compared to the i9 and could upgrade to that an extra £200.

I also checked with Overclockers who suggested the following that was optimised for PP:
Intel i7 / Palit GeForce GTX 1070 / £2700)

Frankly, I was surprised how expensive these PCs are. Is this power necessary? I am looking to edit footage shot on Arri Alexa Mini.
