    1st time - PC build feedback appreciated - Video editing and 3D art

    ScreenNameSoDifficult

      Hello,

       

      Bio:

      First time buyer of the Production Premium Suite (CS6 purchased).  First time user of Premiere Pro.  Hence the lack of participation in this forum (Noob here *hand up*)

      My intention for the computer: Personal photos and video storage/editing, MS Office work, music storage

      Spouse's intention for the computer: 3D art/rendering (Autodesk Maya - work purposes)

      First time building a PC

       

      Here's my attempt building a PC and would really appreciate your feedback:

      Comments:

      I tried to build my pc based on previous forums/recommendations within a budget of $2,200 +/- to give an appreciation on what previous contributors have recommended (hopefully).

      Based on previous forums the standard for a premiere pro PC is 3 storage devices. I added a 4th storage unit (HDD) to store my office work and music (non-video/3d art files).

      Any cost-saving/performance improvements are appreciated if within a 5% price difference with the following restrictions:

      -I have no intention to overclock the hardware or tinker with the software. My local computer retailer is building the PC and all I need to do is plug in the machine and install the default software.

      -I would like to remain in the official Adobe video card list recommended for Premiere Pro (I believe GTX 680 is now accepted http://blogs.adobe.com/premierepro/2012/09/premiere-pro-cs6-6-0-2-update-hidpi-for-retina- display-bug-fixes-and-new-supported-gpus.html)

       

       

       

      Thank you in advance for your time and comments
