When I built the machine it was extremely fast. What's the jury opinion today?
Windows 10 64bit
ASUS Z79c motherboard
ASUS GeForce GTX 760 video card
32 GB RAM
SSD main drive
SSD drive for my work files, cache & database
A big case for good airflow
A fridge and a snack shelf, fully stocked for excellent nutrition
When I edit, I use a clean, separate user account -- highly advised. It did speed things up.
Where's the bottleneck? 4K footage is only a dream for me until Hitfilm gives us proxies.
