PC rebuild for new VegasPro 16-17 purchase was created by HawaiianEye

I see that there is a hardware section. But I record this here, because my new PC build is for Vegas Pro.
So, I will leave the hardware unmentioned so nobody tells me to write this down elsewhere.
Before the hardware upgrade, a 5 minute, 845MB, 29.97 fps video render, took about an hour.
Now, the same render takes 6 mins 29 secs.
Wow! I'm happy! I have no question this time. Just a report.

It's OK to mention your computer's hardware specs here !
Please let everyone know what CPU, GPU, RAM, etc... you are using.
Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.
Peace :)

OK. I kept PC case, Power Supply, all drives.
I Exchanged out: ( Brand names omitted. )
Haswell chipset 1150 socket MOB, i5 4590 CPU, 16GB ddr3 Ram, GTX 960 OC 2GB GPU
I replaced with:
Z390 chipset 1151 socket MOB, i7 8700 CPU, 32GB ddr4 Ram, RTX 2060 6GB ddr6 OC GPU

I did seriously consider the Ryzen 7 2700X. It might equal, or edge out the intel, but it has NO built in graphics.
I use 2 monitors.
1.) 1080p , through rear motherboard HDMI.
2.) 4k through GPU
Because, even though I edit on the 4K screen, ( which is calibrated along with the 1080), most customers today view 1080.
So I can cross check Photo images and video, to see how it looks at 1080.
Thus, I run the 1080 monitor straight out the back of the MOB interface. The onboard intel CPU will actually support 4k.
The competitive Ryzen is castrated in this department. That's a deal breaker in my setup.
Price was about mid $800.US. When you live on Maui, shipping charges will kill you. So, I could only shop for the best Amazon deals.
