Yeah but yours is not broken like mine :)

Maybe Tims right but as I couldnt find anyone who could scientifically tell me which bits make it fast - for an extra £500
I got:-
40 PCIe electrical lanes
32 GB ram. ( note the whole shoot can go in ram)
6 Cores
ECC Ram
And those super fast PCIe NVME discs, someone said they are 4.5 times faster than my interim backup Samsung Evo 850s. And I would say it feels like it.

Call it insurance, I dont know which bits really make it super fast.

As far as I am concerened if I had saved £500 and put it on deposit, Lloyds are only paying 0.7% so thats less than £5 per annum interest! So defo worth it.

But all this depends on the replacement MB running reliably.

At his point I would be happy if I could just get mine to shut down reliably.

Yeah, you most definitely can...

Also, the OP never mentioned anything about 4K other than the screen resolution, which could be powered by the lowest end GPUs.

I was thinking 4k video editing. Not sure how 5dsr still photo editing compares.

The "something special" is the performance bump gained by using an SSD that takes advantage of the 4 lane PCIe bus. I built a machine for a buddy last week and put in a Samsung 950 Pro SSD, Intel I7-6700, Asus Z170 Pro Gamer mother board along with 16GB of DDR4. The machine would boot in under 22 seconds. I did not get a chance to install the normal Photo editing tools on it before it got whisked away. I have to wait a month or so to build one for my self. Monstrous difference between Sata 3 and PCIe (Ver 3) speed wise.
