Suggestion to update my older computer build

I built my computer back in 2014 when my focus was on Photography. I splurged on the processor(Intel Core i7-4930K 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor) thinking this would take me well into the future before needing an upgrade. 5 years later my focus is Premiere Pro and some After effects. Rendering is painfully slow despite the fact that I have 32 GB ram. I have experimented with all the various settings for export and rendering, but have not found a way out of my slooooow video editing world. Still open to advice on better settings also.

My big question now is, can I bring my current build up to speed by replacing the video card

(EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2 GB Video Card) or is my Mother board too old to allow such a thing?

What card would be a good fit for an upgrade that would be compatible with my Motherboard?

 

I have added an extra SSD for scratch disc and upgraded my c drive disk to 1 TB SSD

I work with 4k files about half the time.

I'm trying to pick up a Nvidia RTX 2060 Super for like $380 on Cyber Monday, if you did the same thing I think you'll be very happy with the performance. It's the cheapest card with 8GB of VRAM. 

Please note that your processor no longer meets the requirements, as Adobe requires a 6th generation processor or later, but I've found that this doesn't actually make a difference and editing on my laptop with a i7-4600U is just fine. 

Your motherboard is PCIe 3.0 so you won't bottleneck that. 

Your PSU should be enough, but if not, PSUs are cheap. 

I'd check Task Manager and make sure the processor isn't your bottleneck before you pull the trigger.

Thank you very much for the reply. I think you are right that I need to pinpoint the bottleneck. It took me over 3 hours to render a 13 minute video. I don't know if that is due to outdated Processor  Graphics card, or something I may be doing wrong else where. This is some complicated stuff with so many different vaiables to consider. I would really just like to start from scratch with a new build, but that is not in the budget right now.

There's no reason to throw out good hardware. 

Read through this and let me know if you're left with any questions you can't find the answer to on google: https://www.dellemc.com/resources/en-us/asset/white-papers/products/storage/h17334-wp-isilon-adobe-p...

 

Also, if you're still looking for a better graphics card, I got a RTX 2070 from Newegg for $389 when I was expecting to spend as much on a 2060 Super! There's great deals out there right now.
