AMD experiment
on Apr 12, 2005 at 6:18:57 pm

Confused : As my old P3 is too slow for good work with Adobe Premiere, I plan to build a new PC. DV-editing is a hobby, so I'm not looking for the top technical solution. A stable PC system that works fine with AP 6.5 and Canopus EZDV is all I need.

I'm evaluating 2 options:
- a P4 system => implies new hardisks (SATA)
- an AMD system => ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard with nForce4 chipset
The AMD option allows me to reuse a max. of old components and is still future proof. The disadvantage is that this seems to an experiment in DV-editing. Has anyone good or bad experience with AMD and/or the nForce4 chipset ?

Thanks for your feedback. Smile

Before you decide what computer to build, you need to decide what video capture card/software you plan to use. Every system has different hardware requirements and restrictions. For example, my Matrox RT.X100 is NOT compatible with the AMD/nForce system you're considering.

So first decide what NLE system you plan to use and check the vendor's website for hardware requirements and compatibility.

I'll start using a Canopus EZDV card and Adobe Premiere 6.5.
I plan to move later to Canopus Raptor and Edius.

The problem with the hardware requirements of suppliers is that they only mention "old" equipment.

That's basicaly why I posted this question ... did someone experimented already with nForce4 chipset in DV-editing ?

Yes I would like an answer for this as well because I would like to build an amd system but none of the video editting cards seem to be compatible with any new products from amd. I was considering buying dual opterons.

On a side note, if I get a matrox card would I really need to even invest in a quadro card? It seems that the matrox does most of the work and that a good 3d card would easily do the job.
