Have been a long time lurker on the forums and did my best to educate myself before posting this.
I am a photographer thus far editing stuff on my MacBook pro but the need for storage space and better performance finally convinced me to start building my FIRST PC. I am getting into Video editing and need a strong PC to run Softwares such as Adobe LR, Premier, After Effects, etc. I am new so please don't assume that I know the obvious. So far, my research has brought me to the following config:
PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.co
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($339.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($24.88 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Asus Z170 PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($142.98 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($74.99 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($315.62 @ B&H)
Storage: Western Digital 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($154.75 @ Amazon)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming Video Card ($409.99 @ B&H)
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 (Titanium) ATX Mid Tower Case ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair RMx 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit ($84.88 @ OutletPC)
I am timing this now to leverage any deals coming up in the next one month but I really want to lock into a configuration first. There is a dizzying amount of feedback out there but its not easy to determine which is reliable. This is what I need help with:
Storage - Is the M2 a good option? I tried reading on M2 versus SATA vs PCI Express but I got lost in whats better versus using PCI lanes.
Is this a strong configuration to get into deeper Video Editing incl. 4K/Drone/GoPro footage?
Is this config semi-futureproof to be able to upgrade annually?
Do I need liquid cooling instead of 212?
Hyperthreading and Video Editing + H.265 - Does this check out?
What improvements can I make to this or am I overkilling it?
How should I go about sourcing parts?
I appreciate any guidance from the experienced members here.
Thanks in advance.
