I'm currently in the process of putting together a build for my first PC. I'll be working on visual effects primarily using After Effects, Premiere, Mocha, and some C4D. I'm running the CC 2014 products with all the most recent updates. I won't be doing Ray Traced 3D work.
I'm not quite sure what to get as for storage. I've read here that it's best to have separate drives for the OS, cache/preview files, and Media/Project files. It was also recommended to me that I should instead get one 500 GB SSD drive for the OS and Cache files and two 2TB 7200 RPM drives for an internal RAID system.
For the CPU I was thinking of getting an Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
For the video card I was thinking - Asus GeForce GTX 980 4GB STRIX Video Card
Not quite sure if this is too much info but I typically work with 4K footage using Particular, Red Giant's Denoiser II, Warp Stabilizer, Keylight, Primatte, and many color correction plugins to name a few. Mocha is a huge part of my workflow and I would like to begin to use Element 3D. My current system is pretty limited so I haven't even tried that out.
What do you think of this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
