PREMIERE PRO CS5.5 SSD worth it?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Sorry this is a double post.. I didn't realise there was a SSD forum!!!

I am building a new video editing pc with adobe cs 5.5

I am thinking of getting..

1 x 120gb ocz vertex 3 for windows/programs

1 x 120gb ocz vertex 3 for scratch disk/to cut on

and one 2tb hard drive for storage.

My question is.. will I notice a boost in performance while editing using a SSD as a scratch disk/drive to cut on or should I go for a set up like this...

1 x 120gb SSD for windows/programs

1 x 300gb VelociRaptor 10,000rpm drive to cut on?

1 x 2tb storage drive

First choice is a total of $767.00
Second choice is a total of $579.00

So is the extra $188.00 worth it?

Thanks guys!!!

Did you know you would get a bigger boost in performace if you get a supported graphics card for the Mercury Playback Engine? You can also run an unsupported card via the hack also, but they need 1GB or ram. Also what else is the build going to consist of?

I suggest you put that money towards a better card that can take advantage of the Mercury Playback Engine. Be sure to get something that has at least 1 GB of GDDR5 ram and 100 cores and you'll be set.

You don't need an SSD for video editing, here's why: SSD's are faster than mechanical hard drives because their random read latency is extremely low. Scratch disks in any video editing program are used for long sustained writes and have not much to do with random access. If you want overkill, put two raptors in RAID-0 as a scratch disk. I use two 5400RPM drives in RAID-0 and it's perfectly speedy.

What are you planning on getting in terms of other hardware? If you put your money towards a decent video card, the 2600K won't benefit you all that much, and you can save $100 with a 2500K

The build is as follows...

cpu - 2600k
cpu cooler - noctua d-14
mbard - asus p67 deluxe
case - haf x 942
ram - 16gb g.skill ripjaws x
video card - nvidia gtx 560
monitors - duel 22" (may upgrade later as I already have these)

Only thing I am not sure on is the HDD's...

According to this table below you should use three hard drives.... I wonder if this takes in to account using two SSD's though..

Go for the second one...you are using it for writes only....SSD's with a lot of witing slow down after a lot of work load.

That guide is sort of just a baseline thing. I would recommend you just use a larger drive (like the one you have set for media) for project files and an SSD ONLY for the OS and programs. You honestly will be wasting your money if you use another SSD for a scratch disk versus just using two drives in Raid 0. Read my post above.

What? Why would he waste money on an SSD for a scratch disk? Mechanical drives are all he needs. Sustained writes.

I'd definitely go for the card. The 6950 would be a great choice. I've been trying to do fancy things with SSD / HDD combos in Premier Pro CS5.5, but card upgrades have always made more of a noticeable difference for me.

Please reread what i wrote. I said go for the second option with the Raptor. I know an SSD would be a waste. That is what i meant to be understood. Sorry if I wasn't clear enough.

Thank you

An AMD card would be a waste in Premire Pro...they don't support cuda. And he already picked a 560...

Although i would suggest he get a supported card like a 470 or 570
