Dear community,

In 2016 I built my first customac, running on El Capitan 10.11.6, and haven´t upgraded the OS since.
Today I have to upgrade to High Sierra 10.13.6 to get the last version of Premiere Pro running (editing software).
I know there already are threads about upgrading the OS.
- Do you have advice/recommendations specific to the following build ?
- Do you have advice on changing the build to make it more effective for video editing and compatibility with future OS upgrades ?

INTEL Core i7 6700K 4Ghz
GIGABYTE Z170 UD5
GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX 980 4Go VRAM
G.Skill Ripjaws DDR4 32 Go RAM

SSD 250 Go/ for OS install and Applications
HD 2 To/ for Projects and Files

NVIDIA Web Driver: 346.03.15f02

Thank you for your knowledge.

Thank you for your knowledge.
you will have an issue with your graphics card as there are no web drivers available for Mojave or Catalina

you may need to look into an AMD card

Thank you for your answer.
As long as I only upgrade to OS 10.13.6, the current build will still be working ?
