      Hi Guys,

       

      This is my first post on here I need your help updating my PC. The main thing I want is to have smooth playback when editing 4k (panasonic GH4) footage in premiere and after effects, both cc 2014 and (ofcourse) faster rendering. I have no idea what to upgrade and what to buy. I think i need to buy an extra drive (ssd or hdd) to use as a "cache drive", but after that i'm completely lost. Can you guy give me some advice?

       

      My current build:

      CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K @ 3.50GHz

      Motherboard: ASRock B75 Pro3-M (CPUSocket)

      RAM: 16,0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz

      GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 4095MB

      Storage: 238GB SanDisk SDSSDH2256G (SSD), 2x 931GB Western Digital WDC WD1002FAEX-00Z3A0 (SATA)
