Hi, i'm building an high-end video editing PC. I've already picked up some components and I'm looking for someone who has already built such a PC or is expert about the subject, in order to tell me if the components I picked up are the best to go, and also the cheaper that can be find in online markets.

I make music videos and I use intensively adobe premiere, adobe after effects and davinci resolve.

The components i picked up:
- intel i9 9900x CPU 1100€
- asrock fatal1ty x299 motherboard 310€
- palit rtx 2060 GPU 380€
- WD red 10TB HDD 340€
- 2x m.2 samsung evo 970 250GB SSD 2x75€
- corsair tx750w 80 plus gold PSU 110€
- cooler master master liquid 240 100€
- corsair vengeance 2x16GB 2666MHz RAM 260€

prices are from amazon. total is around 2800 euros. Is there a site where i can pick up some of the componenst for less?
Does this setup make sense for the use i mentioned earlier?
Are there better options on some of the components about value for money?
Thanks in advance to anyone who will answer!

Thanks for the reference. I found a lot of useful articles on that Site. I think i'm going for 9900k because of the value for Money and spend some more to get 64GB of ram, seems a good idea?

Btw do you think Is valuable to spend some more on the GPU? I read that 8GB Is recommended for 4k, or is that only for gaming?
 
Depending on your use case, i.e. If your works are heavily gpu oriented, a 9900k based system with a 2080/2070 would do.

If you use cpu a lot, then a 2950X threadripper system with quad channel memory would be good.

Quad channel memory is great cuz regardless of cpu / gpu, it sure does take a lot of ram. And quad channel gives higher bandwidth (faster transfer rates) in those cases. Read it as 1 less bottleneck.

Another easy bottleneck to eliminate is storage. Like said in the article, using multiple nvme drives for specific tasks is very effective. The corsair mp510 is the king of the hill in endurance and is also on par with the 970 pro in terms of read/write speed. Consider having 1 for the output files (more disk writes, hence higher endurance needed) and maybe a cheaper nvme with high read speed as the work drive.

64gb ram looks ideal. Try 3200mhz cas 15/16 min. Need to maximize that bandwidth, transfer rates.

I would suggest the coolermaster ML360R for cooling if it's 9900k. It runs pretty hot. 240/280 rad won't do. Enermax liqtech II tr4 360 if you are going for 2950X.

I would also suggest a case with good ventilation like the lian li Lan cool one.

Thanks a lot for your answer. I think i'm going for the 9900k.
It seems to fit my needs, i prefer to go for the best value for Money setup than for the best possibile one. I read also about some tests and the 9900k seems to be the best CPU for After effects for now, so i'm rather convinced it's the right choice.

So i switched to the gigabyte aorus pro wifi z390 motherboard and definitly going for 64gb of ram and 4TB HDD + 2x 250gb nve 950 SSD.

I've got a question about the ram. On Intel Site i read that 9900k supports 2666mHz rams, so it Is unuseful to go for some higher performances rams, isn't It?

Moreover i read that rtx 2060 came out and It offers really good performances for the price, do you think it's a good choice or it's Better to spend some more to get the 2070?
 
With the z390 mobo, you can run rams upto 4000mhz. But 3200mhz hits that right price performance ratio.

The rtx 2060 is somewhere between the 1070 and the 1070ti in terms of raw gpu power. Look at some benchmarks and decide if the 2060/2070 is the right choice for you.
