Hi Folks,

Could someone review below specs and suggest any edits? I'm more into funny edits which mostly requires face swaps, 3d texts, merging videos, voice-over, subtitles, graphics used on news channels, animations etc. In coming time, I may start using Adobe Character animator more frequently. Any suggestion is highly appreciated 🙂

If you can afford it, change the storage SSD from that 2.5" SATA SSD to an m.2 PCI-E NVMe SSD. In addition, make that suggested m.2 storage SSD a 1TB or a 2 TB model (again, if you can afford it).

 

And normally, I would have gone with a 250 GB 2.5" SATA SSD for the OS/programs drive.

 

Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

Hi Mate,
Thank you so much for your response. I have edited the configuration as per your suggestion. 500gb is enough for storage as I would be using it only for cache, my project files will be part of external hard disk which I already own. Budget is also an issue, is 8gb graphic card the right option or can I for a lesser one depending on editing work? also if you can suggest me on RAM 🙂

Still less than ideal. No external hard drive is fast enough for any sort of video editing work whatsoever. You see, even the fastest USB HDD, due to the limitations of spinning platters, can only sustain about 150 MB/s at the maximum. That, combined with the overhead of the USB/SATA bridge, makes any external HDD barely suitable for even standard-definition (480p) video editing due to the way NLEs handle video playback. You will need at least 500 MB/s on your projects/media disk (and that's for just 1080p). And if you're going to do 4k, you will need about 1.5 GB/s on the media/projects disk.

Thank you so much, friend. 

I am changing to Samsung 970 PRO 1TB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD (MZ-V7P512BW) with read speed Up to 3,500 MB/s and write speed Up to 2,700 MB/s.

 

I was planning to store only the media files that I am using in Pr and AE projects on the disk and all my personal files are on hard disk. I will keep deleting the media files when they are no longer relevant to save the disk space but I will try to increase the budget and go for 1TB 🙂
