DaVinci Resolve benefits from both CPU frequency (GHz) and core count for editing and effects. In the free version of DaVinci Resolve, the CPU is used for playback and exporting as well.
Not all user workflows are the same though, so be sure and contact us for an optimized configuration.
The amount of memory you will need depends on how many programs you will have open at any given time alongside DaVinci Resolve, the resolution of the videos you will be working with, as well as their length.
Video effects and exporting can use a lot of memory as well. A good starting point in deciding how much RAM you should go for would be to check your current usage via Windows Task Manager.
DaVinci resolve thrives on GPU power, and this should be your main consideration.
To make the most of a powerful GPU, you should consider purchasing DaVinci Rseolve Studio (the premium version), where the GPU is used for playback and exporting as well. The time saved in exporting with a powerful GPU is worth the investment.
In the past, computers were held back by slow mechanical hard drives. Unless you are storing files which are not accessed too often, in which case mechanical hard drives might be a better choice, Solid State drives should be used for everything else. Having everything stored on SSDs means you’ll be able to copy, move, open and save files quickly and PC and program start times will be reduced.
