Currently upgrading my PC right now to improve 4K editing abilities and I have a couple questions about SSD's. I know that there are many things that I should do to create the absolute perfect machine, but I don't have the kind of budget to upgrade everything right now.
I know that Intel is the go-to for video editing, but about a year ago I bought a custom built Asus gaming PC, with the intention of slowly upgrading / customizing it for editing.
Brief run down of specs:
GeForce GTX-760 gfx card
32gb 1866 MHz RAM
I can post more specs if requested..
It performs pretty well, but could be better when editing 4k, and I believe my hard drives are the issue. My Adobe Suite is installed on slower SATA drive, and my footage and scratch disk is a 4TB Seagate External HD, USB 3.0.
If I purchase a 250gb SSD and use it as my scratch disk, and a separate 60 - 120gb SSD to re-install my Adobe Suite on, is this going to make a significant difference? Or is there going to be bottlenecking because all of my footage is on a standard external HD (with usb 3.0).
