[4k video editing]

What kind of computer do I need to be able to edit 4K raw footage fast and flawlessly. I don’t know anything about computers.

Welcome to the forum acruz685!   

I don’t do video editing...but I do understand some components that are desired for that type of use.

1). CPU Cores...lots of them.   i9-9900K has 16 cores....i7-9700 has 8.
     Both would work...but more cores makes a difference.

2). RAM memory....32 gb - 64 gb. Quantity more important than speed.

3). Fast storage is very helpful for video editing.   M.2 NVMe SSD
     drive(s) for your main workspace work drive.
     About 5 X faster than a SATA III SSD.

With a $2000 budget you won’t hit all of those points initially, but you could get a reasonable start at it and add improvements yourself like more RAM or an M.2 NVMe Drive later on.   See Lynx 4 Config # 2341330 ($1999)

The DS Lynx 4 ($1,999) comes with the 8 core i7-9700 CPU, 16gb RAM, and an m.2 SATA III SSD Drive.   You could add more RAM and add a faster M.2 NVME drive when you can.     The Lynx 4 comes with an excellent all around performing RTX-2070 video card and has some cool RGB lighting and fans. Fits your stated budget.

Something like this build would do a better job for video editing...better 16 core i9-9900X CPU with Stage 1 overclocking, a little better MSI motherboard, double the RAM to 32gb, and a fast M.2 NVMe Drive 1...the same RTX 2070 video card...in an excellent Corsair case. See Lumos Config # 2341312 ($3291)
