Not mentionned is the fan speed on an overpowered PS: on my 1200W (I wanted a 1000W, but that was not in stock), my PS fan rarely spins, if you get a lower rated PS your fan will spin sooner (you can see this in the fan curve in the PS specs).

As for memory, the G.skill is one of the best, I had Corsair Vengeance pro DDR3 in my previous PC, also very good memory.

Video card: hopefully not sounding like a fan boy or being religious (I build AMD and ATI in the distant past), I have the perception that NVIDEA just had (and still has) better drivers. And especially so now their new creator (not creative!) driver ready program.

CPU: a bit of a toss up, purely video editing a slight nod to AMD, Intel does seem to be slightly more compatible with programs, has faster AVX (2x as fast) and has QSV (depending on the processor type). Not sure Vegas uses AVX or will use it in the future (sister MAGIX VPX does). However heavy AVX can lead to processor throttling down due to excessive heat.

Then there is the Intel PCI-e lanes 'issue' of not having enough PCI-e lanes on their mainstream processors. Well, first you are never going to run out of PCI-e lanes, even with the i7 9900K. You may however have a theoretical bottleneck due to the DMI link (about 4 PCI-e lanes) between the CPU and chipset if you are sharing bandwith with NVMe-SSD's, USB, sound, network and other HD drives. Not sure this will show in a real life scenario. After all, all PCI-e lanes are 3.0 and 985MB/s each...

Often overlooked: the case, I love the Silverstone fortress 2 so much I have build my last 3 PC's in different editions of the Silverstone fortress 2. The main reason is that heat flow is natural, from bottom to top: 3 intake fans on the bottom and 1 exhaust on the top, and your motherboard is mounted rotated 90 degrees different than a standard case so the heat from your videcard is expelled from the top. Obviously all connections are on the top of the case as well instead of the back which gives room for the PS also 90 degree with the PS intake from the back rather than from inside the case, so no hot air get sucked in your PS. As the case does not have front-fans, and is fairly big, it still has room for 'legacy' things such as blue ray... Some of the newer case types are significantly smaller sacrificing the space where your DVD, blue ray or floppy disk (blast from the past) bays where located.

I'm going to have to recommend you avoid the Radeon GPUs... as good as the performance is in Vegas, the drivers and overall build quality are far too shoddy. There are certain things I can do that just make the card shut down completely, reliably, every time. For instance, I have a cinema 4d animation I have been toying with that has 3 trees in it, but I was experimenting with putting luminance textures on the leaves containing video clips of visuals I have on my computer, making patterns dance across the leaves and illuminating the scene around it. Every single time I change the texture type to cubic, the mouse pointer will freeze, and the video card will shut down, the screen goes black, and i have to physically reboot to get it back. Then, when it get it back, my TVs are overscanning badly, and I have to change settings within them to get it fixed again. It then complains of having to reset settings due to a system failure, which drops all my GPU settings I'd set up. I've even tried undervolting it to try to keep things running cooler, but nothing.

I've done some digging on this, and apparently AMD used cheap materials when building the heat sync, and it doesn't lay flush up against the GPU's processor. AMD attempted to sidestep this flaw by putting a piece of graphite between them, but it doesn't work. One guy said he had to take his GPU apart and sand it down to make it lay flush in order to get rid of the issues... which judging by your comments is far too hands on a thing for you to be interested in doing.

Go with the tried and true pros, Nvidia is where it's at. I can't say I've had issues with the card yet while using Vegas, but that doesn't mean that is always going to be the case. Anything that puts it under heavy load is subject to cause one of these screen black out crashes. Sometimes it's just the secondary monitor that goes out, others the entire GPU.

I'm in the process of upgrading all (3) of my Xeon workstations over the next 2 years now that I'm done spending money on camera gear for a while... For the first I chose a 9900K on an Asus Z390 WS because the Asus has a PLX chip to manage the CPU's limited PCIe lanes. The 9900K is not very upgradeable, but I only spent $1350 for the 9900K, Asus Z390 WS, Vega 64 Liquid-cooled, H150i cpu cooler, & 32gb DDR4. It performs the Red Car test in 14s which is the same as a Threadripper 1950X/2950x system costing more...

4K multi-cam projects are smooth now but I imagine 8K would still tax this system... E3 is just a month away & AMD will likely reveal more Zen2 release date info... Regardless, I'm waiting on PCIe 4.0 (64GT/s bandwidth) or 5.0 (128GT/s bandwidth) before I spend more on the next build... PCIe 3.0 32GT/s bandwidth is from 2010 whereas PCIe 5.0 is supposed to be as fast as DDR3 memory. 8K multi-cam without proxies will benefit from M.2 RAID drives utilizing PCIe 4/5 bandwidth...

@fr0sty This might also be manufacturer or exact device issue. I used to have ATI/AMD GPU once (do not remember the exact model, it was Asus or GigaByte) and it behaved badly. It was not overheating issue as it worked just fine in FurMark (load 100%, temperature stable and within specs). However, it was crashed (GPU, not PC. Like disabling output or heavy texture glitches) in some games with no reason. Replaced to GPU with the same chipset from another manufacturer (MSI that time) and every issue gone. I have not tried to update or tweak GPU BIOS (this might help) as it was brand new GPU. This does not mean that I banned Asus and GigaByte. I still use them. Just that time the exact GPU was not good (they might fix it in newer revision).

The only think I can say is the AMD GPUs are difficult to OC and there is little gain in it hence I don’t do it. I had my GTX580 watercooled and oc to get a bit more out of it and that worked fine until I switched to AMD R9 290. My whole system is custom watercooled with an oversized radiator and big fans to reduce noise. Like you, I am waiting for a higher PCIe class.

My whole system is custom watercooled with an oversized radiator and big fans to reduce noise. Like you, I am waiting for a higher PCIe class.

Unfortunately, it looks like I can either RMA my card and get back another defective unit (one guy said he's already RMA'd 3 cards and all 3 are still defective), or I can spend hundreds more on a water cooling setup to keep the card cool. I suppose I need to do that anyway to keep things quiet, but I kinda like it when my gear works out of the box. This is the ASUS variant of the Radeon 7.

My main 3 issues are: If I do certain tasks in Cinema 4D. it will crash. (for you CG geeks out there, I'm taking a model of 3 trees I downloaded and applying a video texture to their leaves in the luminance channel, so the video casts light on the scene around it. If I turn ProRender preview on so I get a ray traced preview of what I'm doing, then set the texture projection/wrapping mode to "cubic", one tree holds up ok, but the second one will completely crash the GPU requiring a hard reset, AMD driver complains of a system failure afterwards and needing to reset wattman settings, which were already stock)

If I turn on a secondary monitor while the first is already running, half the time I won't get an image, or I'll get flickering static. This won't resolve unless I change a resolution setting to that monitor, then revert back to the original.

My monitors are always overscanning, requiring me to change internal TV settings to fix it. My GTX 970 never did this.

Other than that, this thing screams, especially in Vegas, but I'm scared to deploy it on one of my video projection mapping gigs, where a GPU crash can cost me a LOT of money when I have to refund the client when they come up asking me why their stage is dark during the performance because I can't get a signal to my projectors.

@OldSmoke As individuals we cannot get statistically representative results (it is another story if you are PC builder). I have had some kind of issues with most manufacturers that I used much. I have not banned Asus for that fail (I banned some manufacturers not because of such "single" product fail but because some product design or support issues). I'm still having Asus MB and GPU in some home PCs. However, it is not on the very top of my preferences for other reasons.

P.S Despite the fact the I have the most percentage of fails with G'Skill's RAM this is my top preference. They are resolving issues fast & easy, offer "lifetime warranty" and not overpriced.

2080Ti is a beast. That card should last you a good 5-6 years into the future before you even need to consider upgrades, and being Nvidia, it should be quite stable. The OpenCL performance on those cards is improved as well, so they complete more closely with AMD as far as Vegas goes. Honestly, I'm wishing I had spent the few extra bucks on that card instead of this Radeon 7, though the 16GB VRAM on my Radeon does help with Cinema 4D, whenever it isn't crashing and completely shutting video output to all screens down because I flipped on a setting it didn't like.

2070 isn't bad either, at all.

Computex is just ONE WEEK away, so many new advances will be revealed... According to this website: https://www.pcgamesn.com/amd-ryzen-3000-single-core-cpu-performance-pc-gaming
the new $500 range Ryzen 3000 is 2X as fast as a 9900K on Cinebench multicore, closer to $1400 Intel i9-7960X speeds for a LOT less. 7nm means lower heat & lower watts. Bios updates are already allowing some Zen2 ready motherboards to support Ryzen's 4.0 PCIe specs... IMO the LAST thing anyone should do this month is drop a load of cash into a high-end Intel or high-end Nvidia... IMO just wait a couple weeks for the new stuff to be officially benchmarked & then make a decision. Things will not change this much again until prices drop around Thanksgiving...

> Computex is just ONE WEEK away

- The performance per dollar improvement would be measured in "percents", not "times" compared to current generation

- The new CPU will not be readily available for purchase straight away and will be overpriced at the beginning because of the limited availability

- They might have some glitches and require micro-code updates or even new stepping

- To support new features (like better RAM timings) they will require MB with new chipsets so everything above applied for MB as well

I would not recommend to buy new bleeding end computer stuff straight after release to anyone who do not build/upgrade PC by himself. May be in a 6 months time...

@fifonik - Really? Gave me a giggle. But yes, your advice to this non-Builder is well met.

It's well known that AMD GPU are performing better with Vegas.

Any reason you stick with Nvidia?

@GJeffrey - Thanks for that. Have you got figures for that? I’ve been reading it’s a close call.

I have no complaints with my NVidia 1050(i) and for my next desktop I choose the 1660 Ti thanks to my experiences with that 1050 using for acceleration and NVENC encoder options for Vegas and OBS and..... and....
No need of the GTX 2070 while I think it has for me no need with my FHD 50p and sometimes 4K 50p projects and renders.

Nice setup - but that PSU seems low wattage for the rest of the specs... Looking at https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator you're likely to be in the region of ~600-620W power draw if you're pushing the parts regularly (which is kind of what video editing does!). For the PSU you typically want to run at ~80% load or lower for maximum efficiency, so maybe you might want to consider upping it to a 750-1000W PSU - it'll give you some scope for upgrading GPUs (or running multiple GPUs) at a later date.

All said though, the 650W will power it, so you can get away with that!
