PC Spec okay for Premiere?

Hello!

 

I had a PC custom built soley for editing with Premiere by a local computer shop. However, I feel the setup isn't quite working on a day to day basis. I often has software crashes (Premiere), slow playback (stuttering etc) and it's generally not as reliable as Macs I've worked with in the past. 

 

Here is the setup:

 

  • CPU: Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8 GHz 6-Core Processor 
  • CPU Cooler: Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler 
  • Motherboard: MSI - B360-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard 
  • Memory: G.Skill - NT Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133 Memory 
  • Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 250 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive 
  • Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1 TB 35" 7200RPM Internal Hard
  • DriveVideo Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6 GB SC GAMING Video Card 
  • Case: Phanteks - Enthoo Pro ATX Full Tower Case 
  • Power Supply: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply 
  • Optical Drive: Asus - DRW-24B3ST/BLK/G/AS DVD/CD Writer 
  • Operating System: Microsoft - Windows 10 Pro Full 32/64-bit

 

My question is, is the above spec good? Can it be improved with extra memory? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance

Thanks, I've checked them but I'm specifically wondering if anybody has experience with PC setups and what they think of my current build

Specs look fine, what version of Windows are you running? What Nvidia driver version? Do you have the Intel GPU enabled? What media are you editing? When does it crash?

It could use more RAM and a better processor, depending upon the media you're editing.

Have you tried proxies?

Also:

 Try resetting the preferences:

FAQ: How to reset preferences in Premiere Pro?

If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:

Reset a workspace

Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout
    • Choose Window Workspace Reset to Saved Layout.

from here:

If that doesn’t work ,try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site.

Don't expect much out of that PC, as currently configured:

 

Despite the i5-8400's six cores, it lacks hyperthreading. Therefore, its CPU performance is merely competitive with a previous-gen (Kaby Lake) quad-core i7 with hyperthreading. Why settle for that level of performance when video resolutions become higher and higher and encoding codecs become much more complex?

 

Second, no 1 TB HDD, even at 7200 RPM, can ever attain a sustainable transfer speed (throughput) of even 200 MB/s, let alone the 500 MB/s that a good SATA SSD regularly achieves. And it feels worse than that because all NLEs, Premiere Pro included, decompress display video on the fly, which can severely impact editing performance (not editing quality), especially as more and more effects are applied.

I have an i7 with 6 physical cores and 12 hyper threading virtual cores, and 32Gig of ram

 

I have "acceptable" performance with 1920x1080 24fps and 1280x720 30fps video from my Canon SX510

 

I don't have, and would not attempt to try and edit 4k video

 

My personal opinion is that an i5 with 16Gig is BARELY enough to edit high definition video

I can't believe everyone is telling you that a 6 core processor with an M.2 drive, a 7200RPM hard drive, and a GTX 1060 isn't sufficient for editing. That's absolutely rediculous and not based in fact. 

 

Your system will be entirely sufficient for editing HD video with that setup. Your crashes are probably a result of driver or configuration issues. If you wanted to edit 4k, just upgrade the RAM to 32GB. Don't expect to do real time RAW debayering, but mirrorless camera footage should be fine. You've got plenty of hard drive space to make proxies I hope?
