Let me say that first I appreciate that you're reading my post & Happy new 2016 to everyone;
My potential system will be for Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, and perhaps some 3d software in the near future. Not so much a gamer at all but 4k footage is something I will be editing more and more in the upcoming year.
(This will be my first from scratch PC Build. I am really really nervous, I did lots of searches, and watched lots of online videos.)
I am already thinking in general;
-i7 5930k cpu based system (best for the buck?)
-32 or 64 gb (suggested by others for Adobe After Effects uses a lot of Ram so I am thinking perhaps I should just go with 64gb if it would make a lot of difference and can stay under my budget?)
-single GPU but people suggest for 4k performance a high end GPU like a $500 range. or having 2 (Crossfire?) GPUs that cost around $300 not sure if thats a smarter option? needless to say I have no idea how having 2 gpus arranged and set up. I will need to learn.
-Really smart cooling / cable management / silent setup tricks and guides appreciated. I have been watching a lot of online videos about cases and how to arrange the fans and which fans to use where but it is very relative any input from your thoughts much appreciated as they really emphasize the cooling is very important for a high end video rendering / editing machine?
-and of course STORAGE, I have been reading lots of RAID options I never had used RAID before in my personal computers. I know for sure that I will be getting SSD for OS Drive. However I am very nervous about deciding on RAID system and arrangement of Storage drives for the above mentioned software.
Again, Thank you very much for taking time to read and respond,
