I run a nonprofit RPG library. We travel around sharing the library at events and teach people to use games to work with at risk teens and Vets with PTSD. I am currently deployed to Iraq and have some volunteers running the library for me, awesome people. In the military I am a broadcaster and have not had to build an editing work station for ages , due to having a good editing work station at the Army’s dime.
Well we are going to be doing video tutorials and more for the library when I get home and looking for help of what is the best road to go down for an editor working in a 4k footage.
I have good monitors and multiple 10g network NAS drives and a couple thunderbolt 3 drives.
Thanks in advance for advice.
Here is a good guide for that software
Mind you it has dual Titan RTX GPUs
I would probably Aim for a R7 2700 CPU (cheaper and not tons of performance loss)
Ram would probably target 32gb in a 2x16 setup (so you can expand more later if needed)
Storage maybe 512gb nvme for OS and Scratch pref samsung pro due to wear/tear and not having a cache like evo drive
The only AMD that should matter in this graph should be the 5700XT, which lags decently behind the RTX2060. The former crushes the 2060 in games…which means either AMD’s new offering sucks at “compute” or the software is nowhere near as optimised as it should be.
Vega 64 is way too old and inefficient, and Radeon 7’s drivers are laughable according to the internet.
So yeah, for stability, efficiency and reliability, I’d still go to Nvidia.
I will be back in the US in Aprilish time frame and looking to build then. Maybe there will be a better logical option for video performance by then. Thanks again to everyone that is willing to help out. It is crazy how hard these choices get when it isn’t your money and funds are tight.
I think I have something along the lines of what I will be ordering. It is more than I want to spend, as what the Nonprofit can’t cover I will pay for out of pocket.
The MOBO was chosen as it has thunderbolt 3 support and some future growth as well.
Thanks, it has been ages since i have built a computer. I remember ISA slots, IRQ conflicts, having to check ram voltage and the like. I thought I was keeping up with tech but Damn there are tons of little things like everything in the M.2 variety.
