Let me post this here in a new thread.
I need to get a new machine. My old is 8 years old and it is time to change, of several reasons. The new should work for the next 8 years, or so I hope.
Anyways, this is what I and my PC guy have come up with. It is based on Grazies dosh thread recently and some benchmark tests, as well as the PC-guy's experience. My budget is not huge so I know I can't get the fastest monsta on earth, but it should work well with VP17 and 4 K footage. I welcome all thoughts and suggestions before I go ahead and spend my dimes.
Corsair 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 2666Mhz CL16 Vengeance LPX (RAM)
Powercolor Radeon VII 16GB (GPU)
Intel Core i9 9900K 3.6 GHz 16MB (CPU)
MSI Z390-A PRO (Motherboard)
Kingston A2000 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD (system drive to only have the OS, Vegas and other necessary software in)
Samsung 860 QVO 2TB (work storage/where all video footage and projects are stored until project is finished and delivered)
(I have another big storage/backup where I stow away finished projects and delete them from the work storage)
be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W (Power)
be quiet! Shadow Rock 2 (CPU cooler)
Fractal Design Define C (box)
And of course Win 10 Professional
What do you think guys? Grateful for any thoughts.
