Re: Recommendations for a fast photo-editing computer

I'm not the best person for advice, but I'm in a similar build. Look into NVMe SSD. It's a lot faster than a standard SSD hard drive. The processor and RAM isn't the main bottleneck of a PC, it's the hard drives.

I'm getting two of these, and configured for raid-1. (mirror image to prevent a catastrophic drive failure)

WD_Black 2TB SN850 NVMe Internal Gaming SSD -

Gen4 PCIe, M.2 2280, 3D NAND

I'm also going to raid-1 spinning hard drives, which are 10 TB each for a backup solution.

And for Ryzen 9? They are selling for over list if you can find one. The legit ones are all sold out and they are selling over the retail price. According to my builder if you back-order one, it never gets fulfilled by the promise date.
