I'm building a new editing computer following the DIY7.7 configuration. I am substituting the ASUS P6X58D for the P6T Deluxe v2. The P6X58D is supposed to be more future proof. It has USB 3.0 and SATA 6GB ports and is only $10 more.
Has anyone tried the P6X58D?
I am waiting for the i7 930 CPU to be released at the end of February. It is only slightly faster than the i7 920 2.66 vs 2.8, but I am hoping the i7 920 will be much cheaper. If it isn't, I will be getting the i7 930.
I will be upgrading my quadro FX 580 to a FX 1800. Elemental software is supposed to make Premiere Pro CS4 20% faster by using the graphics board to do the rendering. It is bundled with the FX 1800 for $150 more. I thought Premiere already is using the Nvidia board for processing. I read one consumer review that it made their computer really buggy and it didn't do the edits properly.
