new THUNDER K8WE editing rig
on Jul 11, 2006 at 9:41:40 pm

here's what I decided and purchased for my new rig

[url=]tyan thunder K8WE
a [url=]pcpower and cooling 1 kilowatt PSU
2 AMD Opteron 252 2.6GHz
4 [url=]1gb sticks CORSAIR SDRAM ECC Registered DDR 400
[url=]PNY Quadro FX 560 video card
1 [url=]Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB SATA (3.0Gb/s) [video drive *** and will get another soon for raid 0 config]]
1 [url=]WDCaviar SE16 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive [audio drive]
1 [url=]WD Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10,000 RPM Hard Drive [system drive]

in addition i already have these components that i will include:

a canopus [url=]ACEDVIO which provides both analog and DV input/output and output to monitor

and i'll have to find a way to incorporate my (2) Maxtor [url=]DiamondMax 10 300GB drives.
That will have to include a RAID card since my $500 mb only has four sata ports!!![stupid right?]

not really sure what is better
a RAID card on pci-express
or on pci-x

all the above in a
Thermaltake [url=]Armor Series VA8000BWS Black ATX Full Tower Case...

I'm hoping this will be powerfull enough to cut at 720x486 and maybe even HDV.

what do you guys think?

I'll photograph the build and post a link here if anyone is interested.
