    i7-4930 Computer Parts List and 2 Questions

    John T Smith Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      A couple specific questions, as well as the general question of did I miss anything?


      First - I have read that the Samsung 840 Pro SSD is "the best" but also that the Crucial M550 is very good, so I am currently looking at Samsung for my "most important" drive for Windows and programs, and Crucial for everything else (which will all be copied to at least two USB hard drives for backup)


      Question-1 - OR, is Crucial good enought to also use for Windows and programs?

      Cancel question... going with all Samsung... Pro for boot, Evo for everything else


      Second - I edit pictures and home video from a combination Canon SX-510 12 Megapixel camera, so I am debating between the EVGA GTX760 with 2Gig or 4Gig of ram... the 4Gig model is only $35 more at Newegg, but since Premiere Pro and Photoshop CS5 work well with my current GTX285 with 1Gig of ram, I am not at all sure that I need a card with 4gig instead of 2Gig (I will NEVER edit 4k video!!!)


      Question-2 - For the editing I do, what does the GTX760 4Gig give me for $35 more?

      Never mind... below is final list, decided on the 2Gig GTX760 for my editing


      So... here's my current list of parts for an Intel i7-4930k Computer (Revised)
