Hi all
I have being doing my research for a while into building a custom pc for use of video editing and day to day use which is fairly heavy but Premier pro is the application I would use the most. Below are the specs. The more cores the better and more ram is highly recommend. Is my system overkill or money wisely spent and future proofing.

Processor - (CPU) Intel® Core™ i9 14 Core Processor i9-10940X (3.3GHz) 19.25MB Cache
Motherboard - ASUS® WS X299 PRO: ATX, USB 3.1, SATA 6 GB/s - ARGB Ready
Memory (RAM) - 64GB Corsair VENGEANCE DDR4 2666MHz (4 x 16GB)
Graphics Card - 6GB NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2060 - HDMI, DP - VR Ready!
1st Storage Drive - 512GB PCS 2.5" SSD, SATA 6 Gb (520MB/R, 450MB/W)
1st Storage Drive - 1TB SEAGATE BARRACUDA SATA-III 3.5" HDD, 6GB/s, 7200RPM, 64MB CACHE
1st M.2 SSD Drive - 1TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 3500MB/R, 3300MB/W)
Intel Optane Memory - 16GB INTEL® OPTANE MEMORY (X299) - USE WITH MECHANICAL HDD
Power Supply CORSAIR - 550W TXm SERIES™ SEMI-MODULAR 80 PLUS® GOLD, ULTRA QUIET
Sound Card - ONBOARD 8 CHANNEL (7.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)
Wireless/Wired Networking - 2 x 10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORTS (Wi-Fi NOT INCLUDED)
USB/Thunderbolt Options - MIN. 2 x USB 3.0 & 6 x USB 2.0 PORTS @ BACK PANEL + MIN. 2 FRONT PORTS
Operating System Windows -10 Home 64 Bit - inc. Single Licence [KUK-00001]

Total price including vat is €3,200.
The system is being built and tested by a company. I understand that I could build the system myself a lot cheaper initially but in the long run it will cost me more as the problems begin to mount because of my inexperience of never building a pc before. At the end of the day it is down to me and this is an investment that I will still be using in 4/5 years.

I will have two operating systems one windows for running premier pro and the other Linux on a separate harddrive for day to day no video editing use. Feel freeto give your opinion and advice
Thanks in advance
