Advice regarding computer build for Premiere

Hi all!

 

I’m in the process of getting a PC built. I’ve been trawling the forums and Youtube and have come to deciding between 2 builds (attached).

 

Any advice would be helpful! I’d say my usage would be 50% Premiere Pro, 25% Touchdesigner and 25% Blender. When it comes to Premiere, I create a lot of music videos which are usually very effects-laden. I regularly edit 4k footage but have already gotten used to a proxy workflow. I am trying to strike a balance between seamless real-time performance and improved render/export times.

 

Keep in mind, I live in Vietnam, so some components are hard to come by or severely over-priced.

 

Thanks in advance!

I would wait another five months if you can. The GPUs are still a bit pricey and the Nvidia RTX 4000 series will be out in another five months. Your best bet is to get an Alder CPU and an Nvidia graphics card. That way you can make use of Quick Sync and Nvenc as seen in the video below.

Unfortunately I can't wait, as my workhorse laptop recently died and I'm having to borrow a friend's computer which isn't necessarily built for the type of work I do.

 

I think I'm going to end up going with an i7-12700 and an RTX3070.

 

Thanks for the advice!

That setup will work just fine  but make sure you have an adequate power supply. 32 GB of RAM will work OK but 64 would be better.

Yes, I've been advised by a few people now that an upgrade to 64gb would be well worth it, so I think I will do that.

 

As for power supply, what exactly do you mean by "adequate"? Is there anything particular I should be looking out for?

Peru Bob's suggestion of using a power supply calculator only gets your power supply wattage choice in the right ballpark. For that planned 12700K/RTX 3070 build I'd recommend a 650W or higher power supply unit - but be careful there: Most very cheap "650W" PSUs really handle only about 300W of load. And slightly more expensive "650W" units are really only 500W units in terms of actual output capability. You do not want any of those cheapies in your new PC. Otherwise, the power supply itself may explode, potentially damaging or destroying some or all of your new PC's components in the process.

How can I know whether a PSU is a "cheapie" or being deceptive about how much load it can handle?

Generally speaking, those PSUs with claimed high wattage ratings and prices that are "too good to be true" (or extremely low).

Thanks for the tip! If you have a minute I'd love to know your thoughts about my modified build:

The only component missing from the above list is the monitor (which wasn't listed) - it's an MSI PRO MP271QP - 27 Inch WQHD IPS / 60Hz / 5ms / Speaker

Your CPU cooler looks like it might be rated at 250 TDP. That should work ok. I have a 750 watt power supply for my RTX 2070/i9 9900K system. If you plan on connecting three or four bus powered Thunderbolt 3 devices along with three or four bus powered USB devices you might want to consider an 850 watt power supply. I also have a RAID array along with a DVD burner. I have a lot of devices that will suck up power during boot up but you may not. Having said that the video link below might be worth watching.

I highly doubt I would ever have that many peripherals attached to the computer - at most, maybe 1 or 2 external bus powered hard drives. Do you think the 750W PSU should be fine?

Your system should work OK with 750 watts.

The problem is that you selected one of the lesser 750W PSUs in terms of quality. That is, it just about meets the needs of the build that's currently in your list, but leaves not much room for upgrading. In this case, you get what you pay for, especially since that CV 750 is only an $80 USD PSU ($60 USD after special Corsair-direct discount). Good quality 750W PSUs cost at least $125 USD.

 

Plus, that CV 750 is based on a variant of the HEC budget PSU platform that the competing eVGA BR-series PSU is based on.

 

In other words, the CV series PSUs are just plain mediocre all around.
