I have ordered parts for a new computer but need some help with my storage solution. I will be using a GH-5 most of the time for 4K footage. I will most likely only work with projects of a maximum of 10 minutes. In addition I have two external drives to use for backing up footage, 1x1TB and 1x3TB.
The computer consists of:
Socket-LGA1151, 6-Core, 12-Thread, 3.7/4.7GHz, 95W, Coffee Lake
2x16GB 3000MHz (PC4-24000) DDR4 CL15, 1.35V
755/115x/2011/1366, AM2/AM3, 1700 RPM, 67~113 CFM
I was thinking of buying:
Is this a good setup of should I change something? Any other suggestions of other drives to buy?
I would suggest that for your OS/Applications that you only need 256 GB SSD and if possible use the money to increase the size of the project SSD if you have several projects going at the same time.
Make sure your memory is on the QVL list for that CPU. Otherwise it looks great.
Thanks for your answer! I went for the 500GB 2.5" anyway. The price difference for 250 vs 500 2.5" was only about 40 dollar or so on black friday. And I think that I will be fine with the 500GB 960 for now. If I realize I'm not, I'll buy an extra when that happens!
