Hi guys

Standard precursor to any post on here, I appreciate the info you guys give on these forums. Always massively useful ☺

I have attached a picture with all my system details on it

So I recently invested about a grand in a new system which I had built from one of those companies online (, I have had it for about 6 month and have generally been happy with it, but since 4k footage and larger projects in general have come into play I really haven't been able to work at the speed I would like to. I think I have a good idea of where to start but I am not entirely sure. I believe you are meant to store your media on a drive other then your C: drive which I have done, but my C Drive is a hybrid and my media drive is a standard hard disk. I also use AE quite allot so was considering upgrading my graphics card but wasnt sure if that was a limiting factor or if RAM was more of an issue...

-Premiere crashing
-slow to playback big projects
-slow to playback 4k footage
-slow to view 120fps footage (not in NLE)
-AE compositing not as fast as I would like

I have heard good and bad things about RAID and would consider it but would I just be better off getting another hard drive or an SSD? My budget is probably around 300 as I have other kit to buy and need to upgrade my monitor at some point.

Side points:
- I have a suspicion there is something wrong with my graphics card because sometimes videos would go green online or look datamosh-ey (weird compression looking morphing).
-I am also unsure as to why using proxy media hasn't really fixed this, I have converted 2 4k 5 minute clips to 720 cineform which should surely be easy for my system to handle but still get v bad playback skipping even when proxies are turned on
