    build upgrade please help

    bert nordstrom

      Hello Community,


      Over the last few years I've very slowly got my head around PC builds. While I can edit, the builds themselves have always seemed daunting.

      It's time to upgrade but I need some help.

      I need to edit GH4 4k footage that end up being around 3-5 minutes, sometimes longer (for 1080p delivery). There are usually effects like Colorista and Film Convert applied.


      My current specs:


      Asus P9X79 Deluxe

      32GB G.Skill RipjawsZ 1600MHz Ram (F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL)

      NVIDIA Quadro 4000 2gb

      C: OCZ Vertex 3 240gb

      2x1TB WD Caviar Blacks (media and projects on one, previews, media cache and exports on the other).


      Is the graphics card and disk setup the weakest link (tower/cooling aside)? If I replace the graphics card and upgrade the disk setup, is there anything else I should be looking to upgrade?


      Thank you for helping,
