I am really fascinated by this AsRock 110 Mini-Desk - and I have some questions:
I want to build a YT video content creating machine.
- I would put a Kaby Lake i7-7700 and 16GB RAM
Would that be enough with the HD 630 graphics?
I also want to run a VM with Linux.
A) Do I need to kick that up to 32GB RAM?
Is this enough for Premiere Elements (NOT PRO) with Effect for 2560 x 1440?
I am not crazy enough to try editing 4K with Effects.
I am asking this on many chat forum. A fully loaded Skull Canyon is way too expensive, but at least it has a thunderbolt connection. However, if I am going to use and external dGPU, I might was well build a full computer.
Since I plan to have this a dual boot system, could I get away with Kdenlive on Linux with only an iGPU HD 630?
What I am planning
A) Desktop Mini $150
B) i7-7700 $315
C) 16GB RAM $120
D) 256GB (boot) PICe m.2 $220 (for a double load of Win 10 + Linux)
E) 2.5" HDD $50 (Storage does not have to be SSD)
I would buy the AsRock 110 with the wi-fi option alreay installed.
This would be a beast. Everything but a graphics card.
But would it be up to the task of 2560x1440 editing on Premier (windows) or on Kdenlive (Linux)
BTW: Do I have to install the wi-fi, even if it comes with the kit.
Is 16GB sufficient for a Virtual Machine with Linux? I have 10 GB on my system now, and the VM nearly crashed. Mind you, it is an older system - AMD A8 - 3800
Will extra RAM above 16GB help in media editing or is that the sweet spot?
How critical is that graphics card?
