Hello @YUE. If you are going to be editing content, you will want to increase the RAM to 32GB. Do you plan to edit 4K content as well?
Hi @YUE! I'd recommend a bit of a swap or switch on the SSD's you've selected. I'd recommend the M.2 drive be the larger capacity drive, as M.2 typically offers much higher speeds than the 2.5" SSD. What kind of budget did you have in mind for this build?Also what monitor will you be pairing with it?
I do have two questions, won't removing the SSD make the boot up slower? or am I mixing things up, honestly my first time researching this. And secondly, isn't installing windows 10 free with the install media?
If you're able to budget for the additional cost of the 2.5" SSD then I would recommend keeping it, however, you still do have an M.2 SSD, which you could use at your boot drive. It would be much faster than the 2.5" and exceedingly faster than the HDD that you have. However, the HDD offers much less cost for the amount of data that it can hold!
I'm not sure I understand your second question so forgive me if this isn't the correct answer. I don't know what you mean by install media.
The Windows 10 licenses do have a fee. You can avoid the additional cost of purchasing a USB version if you already have a USB drive that you could copy windows, and then install the OS to your computer that way.
Please let me know if I misunderstood your question!
Thank you so much, I feel set with what I want for my build now, I think ill get a little more up saved for the SSD and hopefully, I won't need to upgrade anything in it for a while.
Happy to help! Please do let us know if you have any other questions!
