What should I build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hey all,

 

I need help, ive been a video editor for like 10 years, and I happily find myself being sponsored soon to build for work a PC for work. I've been using and i7 imac fully loaded but its not up to standards anymore. I need to build a pc that can,

 

-edit 3-4 4k videos at once,

-while streaming to youtube live

-having youtube open downloaded videos or storyboards open and downloading content all at once,

 

I currently do this on 2 devices which is a pain and as I said before I can finally build a device no budget.

 

problem i've been apple user for years and so need some help when it comes to what I will need, i want it to be seamless and cover my work for years and years. I want it to be able to do these things without breaking a sweat, OVERKILL time please.

 

Ive already chosen the odyssey g9 as a display to have all the screens I need opened at once, but I may be wrong.........

 

please help guys, give me a list of each hardware I need to buy....

 

thanks

Do you have a set budget for the system?

Have you made sure that all the software you need for video editing is also available on Windows?

64Gb ram at 4000

I believe threadripper has the same memory intricacies as ryzen, so you'd want to run at 3600mhz for optimal performace

perhaps some radeon vii's in crossfire, if that scales well for your workload. new gpus are coming in a month or two which would be a decent jump from current tech, if you can postpone the build or at the very least the gpu purchase


topics i need help on:

Spoiler

 

 

my "oops i bought intel right before zen 3 releases" build

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (placeholder)

GPU: Gigabyte 980ti Xtreme (also placeholder), deshroud w/ generic 1200rpm 120mm fans x2, stock bios 130% power, no voltage offset: +70 core +400 mem 

Memory: 2x16gb GSkill Trident Z RGB 3600C16, 14-15-30-288@1.45v

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15S w/ white chromax bling
OS Drive: Samsung PM981 1tb (OEM 970 Evo)

Storage Drive: XPG SX8200 Pro 2tb

Backup Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 4TB

PSU: Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 750W w/ black/white Cablemod extensions
Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Dark (to be replaced with a good case shortly)

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

yes adobe and regarding budget no I can get best of the best

Assuming you don't plan on spending $10k:

Going by PugetSystems' testing, the 2060 Super really isn't too far off even the 2080Ti when it comes to Premiere, so spending triple the amount for a marginal performance improvement probably isn't really worth it.

you will need a big PSU
and a M.2/ SSD/ HDD like: 1*Samsung EVE 970 1 TB/ 500 MB and that will affect your editing speed
                                            1*HDD (8-10TB) to save files: like a seagate ironwolf/baracuda (on that i don't remember the format that you will need)
now if you are editing from RAW of a camera, you most probably know how big those files are
And a VA panel is an intresting choise for video editing. Most people prefer an IPS 4K if posible, HDR if possible
If you are also planning to use thunderbolt for external disks or anything, you have to search if your motherboard supports it, otherwise you will need a PCIE card for that

I mean OP is probably not going to upgrade anytime soon so going 2080ti is not a bad idea.

Basically new CPU's and GPU's are coming out in a few months and will give a decent performance improvement over current stuff.

Unless you can predict the future and are sure that future updates will make Premiere actually take advantage of all of the 2080Ti's power, then yeah, I don't see the point. If you can afford something that doesn't mean you should necessarily buy it.

but I will bne streaming as well, in 1080 or 4k if possible

will 2080ti not be needed for that as well?

The hardware encoder on the 2060S is the exact same one as on the 2080Ti.

If you feel like you really need every last bit of performance, get a 2080 Super. It's still way less expensive than the 2080Ti.

 

I also didn't take into account how much more mass storage you might potentially need.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/b3dxFT/western-digital-red-pro-6tb-35-7200rpm-internal-hard-drive-wd6003ffbx

^ you could throw a WD Red Pro in there for some decently fast mass storage. (though it comes in various different capacities, depending on how much you actually need)

 

Also, please use quotes (like above) or tags (@Video Editor 2020 like this) so we're notified whenever you reply.

No budget. a more reasonable spec would be a single 2080 TI, not dual titans.

@Video Editor 2020 so I was reading what is the perpose of 2xgraphics card with a link between them

@ the person who you are talking to, not your self. NV link or sli lets cards process to gether, and lets them share vram. Also you have to chose from the list or the notificantion doesnt pop up.
