Well, I purchased a new computer to setup as a video/photo/creative workstation.  I got a dell xps 8940.  It's equipped with a 10700 i7, 16gb of ram, a 512gb nvme ssd, 1tb HDD and rtx 2070 8gb video card. I am going to be upgrading a bunch of things in this in the coming weeks.

128gb of ram, 4tb sabrent SSD with heatsink, 2 512gb NVME drives in a pcie card, a firewire pcie card a 14tb HDD for storage, a 2tb sata drive for scratch drive for resolve, noctua 9s cpu cooler, 92mm fan and 40mm fan, kyronaut paste, and 5 14tb drives for my NAS server and off site backup.  Gonna be fun!

Ok, so a few updates.  I have a 480gb and a 980gb kingston SSD for project and cache drives for resolve.  That should speed things up a bit.  I am working on ram solutions and faster SSD for OS/Programs.

@kojack How are you liking Resolve?

I am just starting to get used to it.  It's an awesome powerful program.  Once I get my new camera (canon XC10) I am buying the professional version so I can take advantage of the many file types from the camera.  I have done alot of research and found out, for my use, blazing fast SSD's will not really make my computers faster.  I am going to find a cheaper 4tb main drive for both my machines (I have a new dell 5406 with 11th gen i7, 64gb of ram and installing a 4tb ssd in it).  and use kingston sata for everything else.

The speed of the computer is determined by the CPU and GPU.
The RAM and storage will affect the time the processors use to work on the load.
The greater the data loaded into RAM, the greater the time will be saved.
The faster the storage device, the greater the time will be saved.
Comparisons between similar storage device technology are pointless, but different and especially newer technology is worth the comparison.

What I mean by that is, a cheaper "slower" SSD will not be noticed for 99 percent of things we do on computers as creatives. Only if I am transferring 100 gb or more at once will I save a few seconds.  Not worth the extra expense of going to a super expensive SSD.

Update. Moved my storage drive to the top mounting position which opens up room for a 120mm fan in front. I need to get a bracket 3d Printed for the fan to mount to, but once done, it's a great way to get some extra air into the case to cool everything down. I have the 2 sata ssd and the storage drives mounted in the top mounts now, and the system nvme is on board. 

Some tidying of the wires did wonders inside the case as well.
