Hi everyone,
need help.
My old pc is 8 years old and it's fighting hard with my new lumix S1H files. I use proxy but it's not fluyd anyway, computer crash often and doesn't export if I use too much effects.

My configuration is:
- Operating System: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
-CPU: Intel Core i7 4770 @ 3.40GHz Haswell 22nm Technology
-RAM: Corsair 16,0GB Dual-Channel 2*8BG DDR3-1600 @ 799MHz (10-10-10-27) serie vengeance
  • Motherboard: MSI Z87-G43 (MS-7816) (SOCKET 0)
  • Graphics:
monitor LG 22EA53 (1920x1080@60Hz)
monitor LG 22EA53 (1920x1080@60Hz)
GPU 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (Gigabyte) 32 °C
- Storage:
238GB Samsung SSD 840 PRO Series (SATA (SSD)) 22 °C
931GB Western Digital WDC WD1003FBYX-01Y7B1 (SATA ) 24 °C
931GB Western Digital WDC WD1003FBYX-01Y7B1 (SATA ) 24 °C
-Optical Drives: HL-DT-ST BD-RE BH16NS40
- Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

If I'd try to increase the RAM until 32GB (but Mobo can go until 64GB DDR3) and change my GPU with one very good that I can use also in a newer configuration later, could be enough? Or I really need another PC? In this case suggestions?

Thank you all.
Bye.

In all honesty I think you need a platform upgrade. You will also find it rewarding if the work you do pays you in return. in this instance, the term, time is money, comes to play.

How much would a new GPU and the rams cost you? You will need to source a ram kit(x2) to get 32GB and the GPU, if the RTX3000 series, will be a hard find since a lot of other folks are finding it hard to find in stock. What is the make and model of your PSU and it's age?
 
First your motherboard supports 32GB RAM and not 64GB. https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/Z87-G43/Specification
What software are you using for your 4k video editing? For example Adobe Premier Pro recommends 32GB RAM for 4k Editing and a GPU with 4GB RAM. https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/user-guide.html/premiere-pro/system-requirements.ug.html
Overall the 4c/8t 4770 isn't a bad CPU. It is just getting a little long in the tooth for video editing. Going with something newer wouldn't be the worst thing, especially if this is something that you use for work. The biggest problem right now is finding a GPU at a reasonable price, which isn't possible. In that case going with 32GB RAM could be a stopgap for 6 months while prices on other things come back down. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00D6E5JMQ?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1

I'm using Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Davinci overall
 
This minus the GPU would be a good video editing system for the next decade:

If you are going to spend 2600 Euros you can get much better. What country are you in?

We were reasoning on a configuration without GPU cause of the problem about it, but then he find one and yes, the GPU is 750...
If I would stay around 2000€ would be great for me.
Something like this is a good middle ground just less storage space and less multicore performance for 500 less Euros and is still more powerful than the one they recommended you:
