I am in the process of researching and finding parts to build a powerful editing PC.
The key programs I would be using are Premiere Pro, and After Effects. Eventually i would like to learn speed grade but as of now these are the primary programs I use. I want this to edit very smoothly and preform while editing hd footage and what not.
One of the last components I am looking for is the GPU. I know for creative programs this is a crucial element. Since this machine is gonna be tailored for Adobe programs I really would like specifics on what graphics card would be right for me.
While I am okay with spending money I also do NOT want to go overboard. I want something that is practical for my needs, can preform at the level I need, without being too much or not enough.
Of course I would rather have something that is better rather than not good enough, but I have seen the wideeee range of prices and want to make sure I am smart about it.
Here are key components to my PC to this point.
-Toshiba 2 tb 7200 RPM Harddrive
-ASUS Z97 LGA 1150 intel motherboard
-Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt power supply
-Intel Core I.7 4790k processor
-2 8gb sticks of ram
and a solid state drive Crucial mx100 series 256gb
I am hoping the community can point me in the right direction to have the right tools for creativity.
You've asked the same question several times. And you can also search for similar inquiries, we see this question often. Answers haven't changed. Buy more RAM instead of a whizzy GPU for AE.
