Motherboard Chipset Question
on Mar 13, 2004 at 8:10:55 pm

Jon,

Wanted to ask a quick question about chipsets.

My Father wants me to build him a Video Editing System and gave me the specs from your DIY Article. Very nice article by the way.

We currently have a P4 3ghz system setup already. I just wanted to see if it would make a good DV / NLE system. I do apologise ahead of time as I'm pulling most of the specs from memory.

Motherboard: Asus P4P800 Deluxe With 1 gig 400mhz memory.
( http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socket478/p4p800-d/overview.htm )
Intel 865PE Chipset
CPU: P4 3.0 Ghz with HT
Hard Drive: 120 Gig Seagate SATA

The Case is a SX1040BII Black Performance Series II SOHO File Server ( or close knock off )
( http://www.antec-inc.com/us/pro_details_enclosure.php?ProdID=81046 )

This is currently configured for a home business PC. He has another P4 2.4 Ghz system that is for his personal use. I'm thinking of switching the machines around so that he doesn't have to buy any new MB's and processors.

What do you think?

Thanks.

Thorn

looks like a great system. just make sure whatever capture card you plan on using lists that motherboard as being a compatible motherboard. that was my main reason for picking the P4C800-E Deluxe.

Jon,

As far as I can tell the 2 boards are the same except for the chipset. So here's hoping.

I do have a question on the video card. He has a MSI FX5200-T128 card. http://www.msi.com.tw/program/products/vga/vga/pro_vga_detail.php?UID=467

Hopefully this will be a decent card to use for now. If not I can always use it in my gaming pc. I can order that PNY card online for him. Brief specs are below.

Right now the hardest part will be migrating his existing business software back to his old Business PC which has been upgraded. I just got him a Maxtor 120G 7200 RPM and 8MB cache drive for a new system drive and will make his SATA drive the working drive.

Thanks Again.

Thorn

not sure about that card. check the manufacturers site when you decide what capture card you're getting for compatibility.
