Seems like the usual high end gamer.
Why 10 Pro? Most folk can get by with Home.
What monitor. Is this for UHD 4K gaming? How connected?
https://www.reddit.com/r/PCMasterRace/wiki/builds are the usual gamer platforms, why such a high end CPU?
The 10 Pro was actually a mistake, Home is more than enough.
Wanted to change that at some point and completely forgot.
Well, my budget for this adventure is €5k so i was thinking of treating myself to a Asus - ROG SWIFT PG348Q 34.0". So yes, UHD 4K gaming.
What do you mean by how connected?
The cpu might be overkill for the moment but atleast its future-proof or am i seeing it completely wrong.
Checked out the monitor.
You should connect with displayport as HDMI usually has folk complaining about 30 or 60 Hz rates.
"The Geforce GTX 1080 Ti averaged just over 40 frames per second" so I worry you may be expected 100 frames per second on UHD 4K. There are plenty of reviews about this issue and you're pumping in thousands of bucks so I wonder if you knew.
I had heard about the displayport and the complaints.
Oh no, I'm aware of that article where they mention the 40 frames per second, i think i've read about all the limits when it comes to that card.
What's your opinion regarding the rest of the build?
It's a typical high end build but I have reservations.
The Core i9 just showed up so for 4K video editing you have that around the corner and there's rumor of yet another GPU to tackle UHD 4K gaming head on. (Nod to Tomshardware.)
You're dropping a lot of coin here so I'll share I'm sticking to 1080p displays for now. I pay very little today for that.
Indeed, those are legitimate points.
Thank you very much for the insight.
What is the reason for all the storage devices?
I can understand the m.2 for the OS and progs.
The 6TB unit seems like overkill unless your planning on storing a 'huge' amount of stuff.
The 2 ssd's in the middle makes me wonder what their purpose is.
So, my reasoning was the following.
Run the OS on the m.2 drive, raid 0 the two SSD's for video editing, use the 6tb for storage (tad overkill yes).
It's your machine
You have to maintain the rig.
Just as a test, edit a video with one ssd.
Now edit the same video with 2 ssd's.
Also test if trim functions when you go raid.
Sadly i can't run this test at the moment
But i've asked around and people seem to agree that it does improve significantly.
Have you any experience?
If so can you tell me if there's any real improv or not?
I have to write.
The only payoff when RAIDing SSDs seems to be in the WRITE SPEEDs during video rendering or putting it to the disk.
HOWEVER the output rate of the video encoder is usually slower than your run of the mill SSD write speed so the write is cached and there is little/no gain during an ENCODE!!! I have emphasize this is only seen during encode and NOT during say a file copy operation which a RAID 0 would win due to almost doubling write speeds where caching isn't so much in play.
So is RAID 0 SSD faster. yes.
The only way your going to be sure if raid is of value for your specific function on your machine is to test.
If you go to raid and you lose trim then write speed might be affected and you end up doing extra writes to your ssd.
