Resolve GPU with 1 shared PCIe 3.0 Bus
on Mar 9, 2014 at 10:06:14 am

Hello, i’m building up a DaVinci Resolve machine based on Windows OS after years on Mac. I can’t afford a workstation level solution based on Xeon E5 CPUs, so i can’t have access to a motherboard with multiple PCIe 3.0 bus lanes (I haven’t found a MB with Z87 chipset for my 4770K with that feature. Is this true?)
My question is: should I buy the best GPU i can afford (GTX 780Ti) and let it work alone in a PCIe 3.0 16x environment, or is it still better to buy 2 GPU that will work with PCIe 3.0 8x splitting the bus?
My work is mainly Full HD, but sometime I edit and grade 4k footage, small things like ads and shorts.

My current idea of configuration is:

Asus Z87 Deluxe/Quad
Intel i7-4770K
RAM Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB 1600Mhz
nVidia GTX 780Ti
WD Black (2013 version) 3x2TB Raid0
SSD Samsung 840 Pro 256Gb

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Try posting on the Resolve basics and configuration forum?
