    Default Re: New Video Editing computer build options

    I couldn't really game with my current computer mainly cos it couldn't handle it...tho with this new computer i would prob do a bit more, but i'm not a hardcore gamer, mainly having mates over and playing a couple LAN games like the latest PC Halo, COD, Rise of Nations etc.

    So basically it will be my everyday machine, but i ahd heard that dual cards can haelp with gaming performance etc so i kinda assumed that video work can be as intensive, but if Premiere and after effects can't use the benefits of a Dual video Card setup, then i just simply wont get the second card, any where i don't have to spend money i won't,

    but i love the sound of having 32 GB, when i have a bit more time after work i'll check out your build option Pablo,

    cheers for that

    Well the latest announcement of new updates, Adobe software will be able to better utilize dual graphics cards...

    Below is what i have just posted to my thread on Computer Lounge, Haven't had a reply yet as to what the prices will be...just also wondering what your thoughts would be...

    Just a quick couple of questions.

    Motherboard:
    Just wondering if using one of these below would work?? instead of the (initially quoted)
    ASUS P8Z77-V LK Intel Z77 - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77V_LK/
    http://www.computerloung...ntview.asp?partid=16639

    one of the reasons i like one of these below is the onboard Wireless, are there any advantages or disadvantages of any of these boards??

    Asus P8Z77-V Intel Z77 DDR3 - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77V/
    http://www.computerloung...ntview.asp?partid=16388

    Asus P8Z77-V Pro Intel Z77 DDR3 - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8Z77V_PRO/
    http://www.computerloung...ntview.asp?partid=16391

    Asus P8Z77-V Pro/Thunderbolt Intel Z77 DDR3 - http://www.asus.com/Moth...s/P8Z77V_PROTHUNDERBOLT
    http://www.computerloung...ntview.asp?partid=17041


    RAM: i will probably be looking at either 16Gb or 32Gb Ram, is it better to get dual Channel or Quad Channel.


    Graphics: well depending on what the total price will be will be the factor of weather i go for Single Grapics card (and and the second one later) or Dual Graphics Card now...(as just recently announced from Adobe that new upgrades will be able to better utilize dual Graphics Cards is a bonus)
    and also will it be better getting 2 or 4Gb depending on total price. and GTX670 or GTX680??


    so at this point the possible system will be:

    Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V Intel Z77 DDR3 (can you also show what price difference for the V Pro and the v Pro/Thunderbolt)
    CPU: Intel i7 3770K (overclocked??)
    RAM: 16 or 32GB (dual or Quad Channel)
    Graphics: EVGA nVidia GeForce either GTX670 or GTX680 (2 or 4Gb per card)
    Cooling: CPU Watercooling. (Any difference between the EK kit & the Corsair H100i??) and what ever fans that are necessary especially for graphics card
    HDD: Samsung 840 Series 250GB SATA3 SSD (MZ-7TD250BW)
    Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB SATA3
    Corsair HX850 V2 850W Modular PSU 80PLUS Gold
    Corsair HX Sleeved Cable Blue (CP-8920007)
    Microsoft Windows 8 64-Bit (Full Version) - OEM
    Corsair Vengeance C70 Mid-Tower Case (Gunmetal Black)
    Standard Hardware Installation + 2yr RTB Warranty + OS Config
    Overclocking

    Am I missing anything???

    If you can let me know a total price with variations too please, then i can make my decision from that

    Thanks very much,
    Aaron

    As far as I can tell, the only real difference between those boards is the Pro boards have 50% more power phases for the CPU (better for high overclocks) and the thunderbolt model obviously has thunderbolt ports.

    I still think you're going overboard on the GPUs, but to be honest I haven't seen any recent Adobe+GPGPU performance data so who knows.

    well basically I was going to go with just one Graphics card...but with the latest information release from Adobe of what is happening in the new Updates ability to take advantage of dual Graphics cards, i think i may stick with 2 GPU's

    Check out the release info here: http://success.adobe.com/assets/en/d...ro_NAB2013.pdf

    as for Thunderbolt, what are advantages/disadvantages of this...i have heard a little, but i haven't really researched it.

    If it's worth getting basically future proofing myself, then i may get it or else i will just get this Mobo:

    although video editing surely does require some heavyweight graphics processing, it still isnt worth getting two gpu's unless you plan on getting the two best ones on the market. a single expensive gpu will run better than two medium range ones. not to mention you will benefit more from a workstation card than a consumer one.
