Earlier this year I built a computer for video editing, I thought it was a decent build till I start running in to problems with render speeds, media pending for minutes after I open a project, playback issues etc. After reading post from multiple forums I realized build an editing rig a different type of beast and I need help to get the best out of my hardware
This is my current hardware
Asrock Z87 Extreme4 Intel ATX motherboard
MSI GTX 660 Twin Froz III Overclocked
Crucial Ballistix Sport 16gigs DDR3-1600
EVGA Supernova 750watt bronze power supply
C drive - 2 tb Seagate 7200rpm
D drive - 1.5 tb Seagate 5400( I think, it only read and write around 65mb)
F drive - 2 tb Seagate 7200rpm
I use adobe pp cc, after effects cc, Photoshop cc and want to use Speed grade in the near future.
I mostly edit AVCHD and dslr footage
Any suggestion would greatly be appreciated. I know my hard drives are not the best configuration. I want to redo that with a solid state and a couple of new hard drives.
Please let me know if any other of my components could be slowing down my computer.
also will my system run better with a internal or external raid configuration
Okay I read it, a raid wont be necessary since I have a I7-4770k, raid 0 just to save mirror my media. I don't fully comprehend a pagefile, and how to set one up?
