i'd get the 10 core 6950x, 64GB ram, another SSD for OS. Cache shouldn't go on the really slow hard drives unless you want to wait for ingesting, conforming audio, and peak file creation for a long, long time. That would make a fast computer kind of pointless.
They would need to work in raid at least around evo speeds to not bottleneck the system.
Also, the 1080TI(which will create a lot of heat) is untested, so there's no guarantee it will work in premiere. I guess you'll be the test person for the rest of us
Hey, Thanks Chris! I was really considering the 6950x but an article I read said that Premiere doesn't do much after 8 cores. Plus the $500-$600 price difference. I am also keeping an eye on the new ryzen processors.
Thats super helpful information about the cache disk!
I'm hoping puget does some testing soon on the 1080TI
