I'm currently working on a montage and premiere keeps crashing my PC. It's only about 4 and a half minutes long and while I've done a good bit to it, I wouldn't say I've necessarily done an overwhelming amount of editing on it. This just recently started happening tho so I'm wondering if my specs aren't good enough for the type of editing I'm doing, or if there's another issue I'm unaware of. My specs are listed below:
Processor: i5-9600k CPU @3.70GHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER
Installed RAM: 16 GBs
Disk Space: 1 TB installed, about 30 GB free ATM
OS: Windows 10
I have a feeling it's just my processor not being able to handle it, but I'm still not 100% sure. If that is the case, no big deal. I have an i9-9900k I bought a couple months ago and never put in, but if I need to upgrade it now I will. If it's disk space I've got that covered too, I've got an additional SSD I can put in also. I'm just not very knowledgeable when it comes to PCs and I don't really trust myself to put anything in by myself. Like I said, not really sure what the issue is but I'd appreciate the help. Thank you in advance...

Installing a second disk will help a lot, but your computer will have issues with a system drive that is as filled up as it is today. But i understand that you will move media files to the new SSD so the system drive will have more space. 🙂
I recommend to move the location of the Media Cache and Media Cache Database to the new SSD when it is installed and at the same time delete the old Media Cache files and Media Cache Database files that lives on your hard drive today. Deleting the Media Cache files and Media Cache Database from your C:\-drive will free up space.
