    High end system builds for production department.

    FrederickVideo Level 1



      I am working on getting quotes to upgrade my department's multiple video editing workstations.  We have a decent budget so going a bit high end.  We will only ever output to 1080i, but want to be able to use 4K assets in the near future.  I want to encourage our editors to use After Effects more, right now our systems are slow and thus they seldom use AE.


      Here's the build I had in mind...


      CPU:    Intel Core i9 7900X

      Mobo:   ASUS TUF X299 MARK 2

      RAM:   64GB DDR4 3000MHz

      PSU:   1000W EVGA

      GPU:  GeForce 1080 Ti 11GB

      SSD1 (boot):  512GB  Samsung 850 Pro

      SSD2 (cache):  512GB Samsung 960 Pro M.2

      Cooling:  Liquid CPU cooler

      Video I/O:  Black Magic Studio 4K


      No media storage needed, we are connected to a file server via fiber.


      I would love some feedback about the suitability of this build for fast renders in both Premiere and After Effects as well as smooth editing in After Effects.
