    Favor RAM, CPU or GPU?

    I know Catalina isn't ready yet, but I need to upgrade my computer.

    The Macbook Pro I'm looking at is as follows:

    2.3Ghz 8-Core i9

    32GB RAM

    AMD Radeon Pro 5500 w/4GB RAM

    1TB SSD

    My question... I can upgrade to 64GB RAM, or an 8GB AMD Radeon Pro 5500, or 2TB SSD or even 2.4GHz 8-core i9.

    If you were going to throw the money somewhere, which would you do?

    My workflow does consist of iPhone 4K material. I'm using external usb-c attached G-technology RAID array.

    Thanks for any advice!

    *Note: From what I'm reading, 64GB of RAM seems to be the best contender.

    If you use AE, Resolve or other GPU based apps then the Radeon Pro is a good choice.

    RAM would be the 2nd choice then followed by the SSD.

    Thanks Dom. I don't use AE or Resolve. Zero FX. Just cutting and then audio.
