I'm building a video editing PC for my dad.
He will most likely be Adobe Premiere.
Please share your thoughts on this configuration:
Mobo: Intel Desktop Board DH77KC (LGA1155 and intel H77 chipset)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 ivy bridge 3.4 hgz
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 4 x 4 GB - 1.35 V - XMP
Graphics: Inno3D GeForce GTX 570
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB (boot drive)
Storages drives: 2 x 1 TB 7200 rpm in Raid 0
PSU: Corsair HX750W
CPU cooling: Cooler master Hyper 212 Evo
Case: Antec Three Hundred Two
Fans: 3 x SilverStone FN121
Will it there be any advantage in converting AVCHD with Cineform Neoscene ?
Will this configuration be sufficient for running Adobe Premiere CS6?
Alot of folks recommend I7 3930K LGA2011, but thats a little over budget.
Wrong choice of CPU and motherboard because not only is the i7-3770 a non-K model, but also because the H77 chipset does not allow you to overclock by even 1 Hz at all (outside of the limited Turbo Boost feature that's either on AUTO or Disabled). And based on what I saw on the PPBM5 tests, a stock i7-3770 on an H77 mobo would have performed slower than some i5 systems, let alone an overclocked i7 system. In fact, a stock i7-3770 on an H77 mobo would have performed slower than some systems based on now-obsolete first-generation i7 quad-core CPUs and first-generation Nehalem chipsets. In other words, this planned configuration is a case of "penny-wise, pound-foolish"--a waste of money, IMHO. And any system that's based on a relatively expensive third-generation i7 CPU that underperforms a system based on an obsolete first-generation i7 CPU is no bargain.
