Hi everyone,

I know there hasn't been much love around here for Windows based Resolve machines. Lots of complaints about stuff not working.

I'm at the point now where I am going to build myself a new machine. I've presently been doing the vast majority of my creative work on Macs since '89 but I have built over a dozen PC and UNIX boxes over the past 15 years for a number of reasons.

Seems to me that Blackmagic is specific about what motherboard to use, what video cards, capture cards and so on.

Has anyone actually built a Windows box using their specs? If so how did it go in terms of Resolve working?

Do you actually need a GTX 580 for CUDA running 2K HD jobs? Aside from bragging rights, these puppies are known to be power hogs and noisy as all get out.

Here's an old post about a successful Z800 Resolve built.

Thanks Chris! That is a huge help.

Guess I will be ordering a 6 to 8 pin molex cable today to have at the ready should the power supply be short on cabling.

That thread is also a cautionary tale to check the specs on the power supply before you buy it. Most online computer places will list the number and type of molex and/or PCI-E connectors.

I'm getting a 1050w Corsair power supply that is obviously designed for the extreme gamer types that would have a array of heavy duty graphic cards, so it has lots of power cables coming out of it. I will still need to buy a 6 to 8 pin cable though.
