    Help with New PC Build for Premiere/After Effects

    peterl64269003 Level 1

      Hello all. I am looking at upgrading a workstation at work. It is a 2010 Mac Pro. I am really leaning towards PC just for a few reasons. The upgrade flexibility, cost, and the rumors I hear are that Apple is going to no longer support the Mac Pro and move solely to iMac.


      We work with Sony Fs5 and A7sii footage and often have 3-4 camera timelines so multicam function is important to me.

      We also work with 4k footage from time to time and need seamless playback.

      We use After Effects for motion graphics but nothing too heavy.


      So here is what I am thinking.


      i7 6900k

      GTX 1080 TI

      ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer

      G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB DDR4 (Possibly 64gb)

      EVGA SuperNOVA 750 Power Supply

      Samsung 850 EVO 500GB SSD


      I will most likely get a liquid cooler for the CPU.

      I will pull 2x 1 TB out of the existing machine for cache.


      We use a dedicated network storage (Small Tree TZ-8) for all of our files


      Thanks for any input!
