Hi All, well I just purchased and upgraded to Premier Pro CC (from an earlier version) last month.... now a month later (maybe less) and my laptop (HP Envy I7 15T-3000) which i used for all my video editing (and everything else) up and died yesterday beyond the point of trying to repair it... again.......
So... I need to get an PP-CC editing system back up and running. At this point, I no longer need a laptop, nor do I want to have the tech limitations of a laptop for editing. I've spent most of the day looking into what I need to build a new desktop editing system. I've had Adobe's "minimum requirements" page open most of the day, as well as looking into many videos and other websites about what is "recommended hardware" instead of just the minimum requirements. I want a system that is more than just the "bare minimum", but at the same time I am on a limited budget, and I do not make any money on the video editing I do, as it is for a small ministry.
With that said, here is what I am currently looking at. Its been a few years since my last desktop build. I had a lot of issues with that laptop, so I need a system that is solid and stable and has at least good performance and decent render times. I don't use After Effects or anything, just Premier Pro CC 2017 and Adobe Encoder that comes with it. This will also become my main "general use computer", so I need it to work for what ever else I need, but video editing will be the heaviest system load it will do. I would also like to be able to do other things on the computer, like browse the internet or watch a video, while rendering... if possible, but this is not a necessity.
I'd like to hear from those with experience/knowledge with Premier Pro CC, who could tell me if what I've got listed here looks to be a pretty solid system... or not... if there are better components for the money, if there are things here that I don't need or won't help with Premier Pro, OR if there is things I can change and save money but still maintain good performance and stability.
Here is what I have come up with after my research:
**ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX Motherboard - Amazon $229 : https://goo.gl/jTSren
**Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 WINDFORCE OC 6G (GV-N1060WF2OC-6GD) - Amazon $255 : https://goo.gl/lPC6AV
**Corsair RMi Series, RM750i, 750 Watt (750W), Fully Modular Power Supply, 80+ Gold Certified - Amazon $140 : https://goo.gl/qyG61b
**WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX - Amazon $69: https://goo.gl/gK0tkg
(Note: I have a Crucial 500gb SSD hard-drive that is about 8 months old from my laptop, which I will use for windows 7, programs etc, and i will probably add another WD 1TB later on)
And of course I still need a screen and a keyboard.... I just bought a Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum just over a week ago to use on my laptop (before it died...) for Premier Pro to help me edit faster.... so I'll use it on this system.
So... what do you all think? Is There Anything that i'm forgetting????
Let me know
