If you want to improve your fps, you need to upgrade your gpu. I think that a 1070 or 1070ti would do the trick.

If you want your whole system to feel faster, buy an ssd and a 16gb kit of ram.

That's going to be a sticking point, as it only supports a 4th gen CPU, and current ones are 9th gen (or, realistically, the 8th gen ones are fine) now if you don't want to chuck your whole system and start fresh, a solid CPU can be had.

Also you list a 512GB hard drive, but you don't mention if it's a solid state or a sinner one. Going SSD makes a huge difference in just about everything

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

yep, only problem is the blower on it, but with an undervolt and maybe a better cooler down the line it will be fine. at least this is a refference board

My first thought, I was searching about it, and you simply can't find a better cooler for the price, you would have to go with a Vega 56 to get a decent cooler, not even a great one. But as you said, you can shave off a LOT of power consumption with undervolting, so it'll be fine. Also has potential for watercooling since it's reference, if OP wants to go crazy haha.

Time to use that as secondary storage and put in place a SSD.

550w PSU would be very unhappy with him.

You have to explain me that one. The tdp of a vega 64 is 295, 2600 is 65 plus let's say 20 for overclock is only 445 watts. Shouldn't it be enough?

Do you plan to keep a lot of your editing stored on your computer, or delete them as you fill your storage. Your defiantly going to want more storage if you want to store want you edit.
