The question of do you need 128GB of RAM for video editing is somewhat subjective. We answer this question by showing some render results to see how 6k is handled by Premier Pro with rendering and of course talk about the pro’s and cons in investing the money. Speed plays a factor of course. We look at what is worth it when it comes to 64 GB vs 128 GB for video editing and how you should think before making a decision.

Building My First Video Editing Workstation PC

This is a walkthrough video of a my first PC build workstation for 4k an 6k video editing. In my first attempt to build a pc in 15 years or so I think I hit it out of the park. Building my first video editing workstation pc was a fun journey and still continues as I find some improvements to be made along the way. In this video I walk you through the process of why I chose the different parts and how to put it all together.

I made this video in February so lots has happened since then. Subscribe to see the series as I explain the pros and cons along with the improvements that I am making with the PC so you won’t have to spend time, energy and money on things you don’t have to.
