Focus on getting TWO GPUs for the machine. You cannot double up display functionality with image processing. Quadro 4000 is good for the GUI, the card in slot one. I would suggest, the GTX 580 "Classified" version for the processing card. Lots of people having issues with Decklink cards in this mix, so as it has already been suggested go with the USB 3.0 route for your video capture. The graphics drivers and the motherboard do the work to control fan speed so you don't have to worry too much about noise. I got a big "silent" cooler for the CPU. The machine is very quiet with just that one special cooler. I expected the GTX 580 to sound like a jet engine but it is quiet.

Don't overthink it but do read through the Windows Configuration guide that you will find along side the installer for Resolve Lite on the BM site. It is all there and they have updated it within the past 6 months so it is current.
