For example would you think this is a good setup:

  • 250GB, SSD NVME for OS+programs

  • 2TB, SSD NVME for project files+source media+games

  • 500GB, regular SSD for only cache files

  • 4TB HDD, for finished projects and archive etc.

A few concerns for me are:

  • Is 250gb enough for the OS&programs?

  • is 500GB enough for cache files?

  • is it better too use the NVME for the cache files or source media&project files?

 

And another thing... I mostly use premiere but also AE and photoshop... my projects files are always around 1080p 60FPS sometimes 250FPS and length of my projects are generally around 10 min long, I do somettimes like too make heavy effects or animations with AE though... this is too give you an idea if above GB&TB would be fine with all of that.

Btw FYI, I want 2TB on the second drive because I also like to play some games next to video editing.

In my opinion, you can ditch the 500GB SSD and use the 2TB also for media cache. Invest instead in more RAM, After Effects loves having more of those.

I tend to agree Sami Succar. The M.2 SSD are super fast.
