$1,500 4k Premiere Pro HW. What am I missing?

Hello, All!

I am looking to build a platform that will allow me to do some 4k editing (specifically 4k 10-bit D-log). I am definitly not a pro and do not have expectations for production-level speed, but I also do not want to get frustrated waiting for Premiere to catch up, or waiting endlessly on renders. 

Here is the config that I came up with. If y'all see some glaring omissions, mistakes in the config or have suggestions on what could be done better/cheaper, then I would greatly appreciate it.

The config for now looks as follows:

 MBCPUGPURAMNvMe
OS
NVMe
Project
NVMe
Cache & Scratch
CasePSU
GIGABYTE X570 AORUS ULTRA291.00        
AMD RYZEN 7 3700X 8-Core 3.6 GHz 329.99       
 GeForce RTX 2060 Super  399.00      
32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)   114.99     
M.2 2280 500G PCIe 3.0    59.99    
M.2 2280 1TB PCIe 3.0     97.99   
M.2 2280 1TB PCIe 3.0      97.99  
Mid-Tower       89.99 
80 Plus Gold 650W, Fully Modular        89.99

 

Thank you for your help and guidance here!

And, yes, I should do RAM 2x16 instead to have room for further explansion.

There is absolutely no need at all whatsoever for three m.2 PCIe SSDs. You really need only two. The OS/boot drive should really be a 2.5" SATA SSD (your smallest-capacity SSD should be a 2.5" SATA SSD).

 

And why settle for 2400-speed RAM? You see, the AMD Zen platform is relatively sensitive to changes in memory speed compared to Intel platforms. Therefore, go for at least 2666-speed RAM for that system.

Randall,

 

Yes, I realized that mistake as well. I changed to 3200 instead. As far as the NVMe SSDs are concerned, yes, I understand that it maybe overkill, but at $59 for 500G and $98 for a TB the savings of standard SATA SSD isn't exactly great.

 

Is there a disadvantage to using NVMe? I guess I could go with 2 and use bigger capacities.

 

Thank you!

The only reason for my advice comes from the fact that some motherboard chipsets are limited in their total combined maximum throughput. I know for a fact that Intel's mainstream chipsets for LGA 1151 cannot handle more than about two PCIe SSDs without slowing each of them down significantly. Plus, SSDs for OS/programs rely much more on random read/write performance than sequential read/write performance - and there is where m.2 PCIe SSDs do not perform all that much better than SATA SSDs, and many still cost significantly more money than their corresponding SATA counterparts..

What did you have in mind for the workstation display?  Single?  Dual?

 

Are you configuring a reference monitor?

 

What color depths are you looking to support?

 

Speakers?

 

Headphones?  

 

How much source footage do you anticipate having?  1TB should be good for short projects.

 

What storage media will you offload/archive to?

 

Will this be a stand alone workstation or will you need to patch into a SAN?
