Need help buying a computer that does 4K color correction

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am buying a new computer and I need some help.

I am looking for a computer that can do fast 4K color correction and editing in both Davinci Resolve, Assimilate Scratch and Adobe Premiere Pro. I sometimes work with DPX files as well.

I am looking at two machines and not sure which one to get:

CPU: Intel Xeon E5 V4 ES Broadwell 20 cores / 40 threads cpu 2.5GHz turbo, 2,3GHz all cores, 50mb cache
RAM: 4 x 4Gb Crusial DDR4 2133MHz (16GB total)
DRIVE: Kingston V300s 120Gb SSD
Motherboard: Asrock X99m Extreme 4
CPUZ bench: Single Thread 1200, Multi Thread 23800

OR

CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2420 1.9Ghz 12 cores / 24 threads
RAM: 4 x Kingston 16GB 1600Mhz DDR3 ECC CL11 (64GB total)
DRIVE: 4 x 250GB 5400RPM 2, 25" SATA
Motherboard: Asus Z9NA-D6 (server-type motherboard)

For the GPU, I am planning to install 1 x Nvidia Geforce Quadro 6000 6GB RAM on either one of them.

Which one would serve me best?

Thank you so much.

These are two computers that way different from each other.
One has 16GB or memory the other 64GBs
One has 120GBs of storage, the other 1000GBs

For the software your using, have you contacted the companies that make the software and asked them how many CPU cores their software can take advantage of.
And how much main memory the apps can take advantage of.

Not sure why anyone would use 4 HDD (250GB 5400RPM) anymore (RAID setup?)
When just one SSD drive would be way more reliable and and faster.
I'm not talking about the Kinston V300 with 450 read/450 write.
More like a M.2 2280 PCI-E 3.0 X4 with 3000 read and 1500 write.

I can understand having HDD for storage and backup, but SSD is just better for the boot drive and running apps.
