Building a new system, i need advice...
on Nov 6, 2009 at 4:37:33 am

Hi every one, i'm into the video editing stuff. Currently, i have a P4 system, i love this system, but, just imagine my pain when i do renders, or work with After Effects... so i need something faster Wink

At last i have money, not so much, but here is the list of the new system

CPU Core i7 920
Motherboard GA-EX58-UD5 (maybe ASUS P6T)
HDD1 500GB (system drive)
HDD2 1TB
Video Radeon 4890 Vapor-X
RAM DDR3 4GB (Super Talent, but i don't know anything of this memories, i haven't heard of this trademark before)

I need advices, i'm all ears.

Thanks

Hi

Yoour configuration looks fine, just a few comments

- The mobo supports triple channel memory, get 6 GB of ram (6x1GB) to take advantage of this.

- Instead of a single drive for capture make an array 2x500 GB for better perfomance.

Feel free to ask.

Cheers

why 6x1GB??? why not 3x2GB??? or something else... do i'll get better performance?
What mark of memory should i get???
And how many power do i need? i was thinking to get a 750W power supply

Hi

It's just an example of how u could set the memory, it depends on how much ram the mobo supports/ you can afford. But 6x1GB or 3x2GB would give the same performe but the allow future upgrades (6x2GB).

I usually use kingston hyperX of Corsair dominator, but i like to read reviews from users before buying if posible, http://www.newegg.com and cnet.com are good sources as u can read good and bad things based on experience.

I'd use a 850W PSU, also try to invest in a good case.

HI,

you need 3 drive minimum

do NOT buy Super talent as its XMP profiles are never right.

3 x 2gig is correct NOT 6x1gig.

buy an nvidia Card like a 260/285. Cuda is supported by Adobe and others.

hmmmm, now you make me think about CUDA, i was researching... but
GTX CUDA will only work on photoshop? or also has an impact on premiere and after effects? because i read after effects and premiere use the QUADRO CUDA cards...

I know ATI Stream is still green, but whats the future of this?

Also, i think i will buy the GA-EX58-UD3R MoBo...

Adobe takes advantage of the GPU in Photoshop, Premiere, and AE.

some plugs are CPU only others are GPU.
Adobe = nVidia for best performance.
