You're working with some of the nastiest media to edit made. I know colorists with a rig 4 times what yours is, they work 6k RED as a breeze. But ... a client's project has any significant H.264 long-GOP media, the assistant transcodes all of it to actually use in the project.
The last paper on building a rig for H.264 editing listed 8 cores as a minimum up to 10, as close to or above 4Ghz as possible, and with as close to 10GB of RAM per core as possible.
With projects and media on internal m.2, Nvme, and other high speed SSD drives.
You have an ok rig but not a hot one for editing by any means. For your media, ingest all through the Media Browser and use the option to create Cineform proxies. In the program monitor click the + sign to open the extra controls dialog. Hover til you find the Toggle Proxy in and drag it out to your controls. Clicked to blue, you're using proxies. Click to gray, original media.
Thank you Neil, I thought my rig was somewhat High-End, I guess it just the most expensive pc that I've owned so I considered it that. I will try out the proxies.
Thank's for the reply Ann. I will give your suggestion a try.

I have the same cpu and can edit h.264 (gopro) and canon mxf without proxies.
