Hardware for Video Editing

Hello,

We just hired a graphic designer. Upon seeing the specs of the laptop she is receiving which had 16GBs of RAM and 256 GB SSD, she told us that she would need at least 32 GBs of RAM and 1 TB SSD to be able to render hour-long videos in an hour or less. She will be editing videos, creating them using green screen and rotoscopping.

In doing some research, I am seeing that the CPU does the rendering and is most important in this case. Is this correct? Are her assertions correct for what she needs or is it somewhere down the middle? The laptop she has is still under what I feel are appropriate specs, but a 1 TB SSD is not doable for our organization, so we are looking to strike a balance.

This is what I am interested in:

Desktop

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro

CPU: i7-7700, AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Quad Core, Intel 7th Generation Core i9 X, i7-8700, or i7-8700K

RAM: 24 - 32GBs of DDR4

Storage: 1TB Hard Drive + 256GB SSD

GPU: Intel HD Graphics 630, NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, or Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 TI

Would the above specs be sufficient? We are thinking of building a desktop. My boss had suggested the Quadro and having a Mini-ITX since he wanted a smaller form factor, but the Mini-ITX does not appear to offer enough room for expansion. The graphic designer will be using the Adobe Creative Cloud  2018 Suite, especially Premiere Pro.

What type of media?

If 4K, you want at least an 8 core with hyperthreading, 64 GB RAM, 500 GB SSD for OS and applications and a 1TB  SSD for media and cache.  Better yet, add a third 500 GB SSD for cache.

You can skimp, but you may end up not being able to meet deadlines.
