I'm currently using Premiere Elements and plan to add Davinci Resolve Light (current system only has 32 bit - need 64)
I don't want to get into overclocking, modifications, etc. as I do not feel my skill level is there. Simply building to get the most bang for buck. And, I must admit, a lot of the tech stats are foreign and I don't have hours upon hours to learn.
That being said, I am reluctant to build only because of a potential for software-related tech support in the future. Where would I go for tech support? I wouldn't have the time luxury of a forum-based solution.
I want to build simple, because Premiere Elements doesn't require the higher tech specs that Premiere Pro has; mainly Adobe-certifi ed GPU card for GPU-accelerated performance; this is where a large expense can come in that I don't need but want the potential for future UPGRADABILITY; something to do with graphics cards and CUDA cores I believe.
I want to keep rendering time to a minimum.
4th generation i7 start w/ 16GB RAM upgradable to 32GB SSD for OS and Programs HDD for Data OS Windows 7, if 8 not a requirement. I read a certain version of 7 only utilizes 16GB RAM (that's not good)
Here's what I put together http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZWHzhM
Can I get the price down, what about the Graphics/Video card?
Please let me know what's missing or uncompatible.
ALL advice appreciated.
