I just built a new machine based on an Asus x99a/3.1 motherboard and 5820 cpu. I do video production and web development. Im running windows 10 and my main os drive is a samsung 950 pro 512mb (Probably overkill).
I want to be able to edit 4k video on my machine using premiere pro. I currently have 2 ssds in addition to my system drive and a hd. 1 ssd for storage of current video I'm working on and 1 as a scratch disk and the 4tb drive is where I archive.
The problem I'm running into is all the raw video storage. I currently shoot every thing in 1080i5994. I'm shooting an event and coming home with 250gb in video that I need to edit, archive, produce tv shows with and burn to dvd/bluray for sale. I shoot about 3 events a month right now and am starting to run out of space on my 4tb internal drive.
I think the way I want to go is with a raid array in my system of 4 - 4tb western digital black drives. Then for backup I will get either an external nas to copy the data to or just use external usb3 drives then take them to the bank or somewhere safe to store them.
I dont have a lot to spend, probably about 1k for now but I will expand as I grow. I was thinking I would just do a Raid5 array in windows with the 4 4tb drives giving me 12tb of working storage and then I would back up outside of the machine. Or should I get a pcie card of some sort? I was looking at this one. I'm not entirely sure which way would be the most cost effective vs performant. Am I looking at this wrong?
