PC Spec for Premiere Pro?

Currently using an iMac 27" 5K with reasonable happiness and want to get a second room going.

Any advice on what's important and not?

I *could* build my own, but am tempted to buy a built to order machine - https://www.scan.co.uk/3xs/info/choosing-a-pro-video-workstation - is probably where I'd start. https://www.scan.co.uk/3xs/configurator/hd-video-editing-workstation-intel-core-i7-pc-pro-recommende... is the 'HD' recommended model.

I'd be tempted to up the RAM to 32GB and lose the 'Projects' drive (as I keep them on the RAID with media for easy backup).

Anyway - those of you with the PC chops, please do fire away with recommendations & caveats - all appreciated. Even just add links to previous posts that cover the same ground if you know of them...

Thanks

The "HD" recommended system looks like a good configuration, but as you noted, could drop the SSD for Projects. For Projects/Video, maybe go with two internal SATA drives in RAID 0, or external editing RAID using USB 3.0 or new USB-C connectivity. 32GB would be better than 16GB if it fits the budget

My opinion, go all SSD and forget Hard Disk drives and/or RAID except for backup and archiving

I also was on the iMac for years, and it was great, but I just got so tired of choppy playback all the time... so I took the plunge, did a ton of research, and finally built the best video editing PC for Premiere spicifically ... was not easy. https://cineclast.com/2020/09/15/the-best-pc-for-editing-video-on-premiere-pro-period-and-under-2000...
