Hi,

I have ordered parts for a new computer but need some help with my storage solution. I will be using a GH-5 most of the time for 4K footage. I will most likely only work with projects of a maximum of 10 minutes. In addition I have two external drives to use for backing up footage, 1x1TB and 1x3TB.

The computer consists of:

  • ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming, S1151

          ATX,Z370,DDR4,3xPCIe-x16,SLI/CFX, 2xM.2, USB 3.1, Aura Sync, SupremeFX

  • MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Gaming X

          PCI-Express 3.0, 8GB GDDR5X, 1683/1822MHz, RGB LED, Pascal

  • Intel Core i7-8700K

          Socket-LGA1151, 6-Core, 12-Thread, 3.7/4.7GHz, 95W, Coffee Lake

  • Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz 32GB

          2x16GB 3000MHz (PC4-24000) DDR4 CL15, 1.35V

  • Be Quiet! Dark Rock PRO 3 CPU

        755/115x/2011/1366, AM2/AM3, 1700 RPM, 67~113 CFM

  • Corsair TX750M, 750W PSU

          ATX 12V v2-4, 80 Plus Gold, Semi Modular, 6+2-pin PCIe

  • Seagate Barracuda 4TB 3.5'' HDD

          SATA 6.0Gb/s, 5900RPM, 256MB cache, 3.5''

I was thinking of buying:

  • Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5" SSD - for Windows 10, Adobe Premier Pro, Lightroom and a couple of games

          SATA 3.0, 2.5", up to 540/520MB/s read/write, 6.8mm, 150 TBW, cloning-SW

  • Samsung 960 EVO 500GB M.2 PCIe SSD - for projects currently working on.

          M.2 2280, PCIe, NVMe, up to 3200/1800MB/s read/write, cloning-SW

Is this a good setup of should I change something? Any other suggestions of other drives to buy?

Thanks!

I would suggest that for your OS/Applications that you only need 256 GB SSD and if possible use the money to increase the size of the project SSD if you have several projects going at the same time.

Make sure your memory is on the QVL list for that CPU.  Otherwise it looks great.

Thanks for your answer! I went for the 500GB 2.5" anyway. The price difference for 250 vs 500 2.5" was only about 40 dollar or so on black friday. And I think that I will be fine with the 500GB 960 for now. If I realize I'm not, I'll buy an extra when that happens!
