PR 2019.2 - love the program more each release. But...speedy it's not. Zooming then having to pan is painful (zoom-to-cursor, anyone?). Sometimes, after even relatively brief editing sessions - switching to the browser (especially if layers are involved) takes up to 30 seconds (SSD).
I'm not bitching at OnOne here :-). I know they're working hard on this and only so much can be done with...my current toothy HW:
- ASUS Sabertooth x79, i7 3930 OC'd to 4GHz, 32GB DDR3, GTX 750 Ti 2GB, dual monitors (probably doesn't matter).
Not too bad - PS CS6 hums right along, even Doom 2016 runs smoothly - but PR doesn't.
I'm not a pro, or even a serious amateur. But I've used PS (leading to OnOne extensions, leading to PR) to edit GUI's & controls for decades (gulp). This has led me to the joys of photo editing and my sincere desire to see PR scream as best it can.
But I can't justify buying a new system and I'm maxed out in the MB department. I'd like opinions on whether I can get more bang for the buck by updating the MB/CPU/RAM (expensive 'cause you can't really upgrade piecemeal) or by working on the GPU.
What I've got now isn't much (specs: http://tinyurl.com/y4n4gtky).
How much performance will I gain by upgrading the graphics card? If I add a 2nd card can PR use both? I've always been an NVIDIA guy - any reason to consider something else?
I'd love to hear what you all think - and sorry for TL;DR.
