Building PC for use with MC 6.5
on Jun 12, 2013 at 10:54:26 pm

Hi, I'm on the way to build a PC for using Avid MC 6.5 (or 7). This is going to be a big change too because we've always worked with Premiere.

I'm thinking on this:

Mother Asrock Z77 Extreme4-M Socket 1155 -
Microprocesador Core 3ra Generacion “Ivy Bridge” 3.40 Ghz Intel® 8M Cache #i7-3770 Socket 1155 Intel
Gskill Sniper 16GB DUAL CHANNEL 2X8GB -
HD 2Tb Sata3 64Mb Cache WD (WD20EARX)
Case SS1-2422 (RJA-2421D) 450W-Office c/LCD Black Sentey
Nvidia Pny Quadro K2000 2gb Gddr5

I have another 1TB HD and I'm going to work mainly with XDCAM EX footage and other 1920x1080 footage (MPEG2 from a Tricaster 855).

I'm also planning to buy later a Blackmagic DeckLink Duo or a DeckLink Optical Fiber.

Do you think this PC would work without many problems??

Thanks a lot!

Hi Cesar,
generally it could work. But as i can see Avid has removed the certification for Nvidia Quadro K-series Cards from the list of systems they would prefer. But one important thing. To get Support from Avid you should buy a recommended/certificated System (HP Z220/420/820 etc).Please have a look at the Avid qualified System list.

If you need some assistance or sales info, feel free to contact me.
Best Regards, Martin

Thanks Martin, I've been looking at the certified systems but I can't afford one of them right now, so I believe I will have to build something likely to work with no major issues (and lose the Avid Support). Is there another GPU you would sugest (I would like Quadro 4000 but it goes out of my budget too).

Thanks a lot.

César

Do you know why the Nvidia Quadro K series GPUs were removed from supported just a week after they were supposedly certified? I have an HP Z820 that came with a Quadro 2000 GPU and almost upgraded to the K4000 until I saw it was removed from the supported list quite quickly.

There is a small text file in MC folder structure that you can modify to include cards not officially supported by Avid.

That helped to make the latest WHQL NVidia driver to work with Symphony 5.0 on a Z820 and Quadro 4000, but I am pretty sure it'll work with GeForce cards as well. Haven't tried it though.
