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.
:idea: 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. If you would like to share some love, post a customer testimonial or make a donation.

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.
