If you look at the PPBM5 Benchmark you will probably end up near the bottom of the Results list with a time of 900 - 1000 seconds. For purely DV material your system will be around 4 - 5 times slower than a fast system, if you include HD material in the equation it will be around 15 - 20 times slower than a fast system.
I reviewed the pages u suggested before postin, but i couldn't find any case exactly as mine that's why i decided to start a new topic
Also i forgot to mention that that's the stuff im buyin and i already own another HDD at home so im gonna be workin with both.
Would u suggest me installin CS3 or CS4 instead of CS5 in my new pc?
Look at Farid Nasiri with 715 seconds (with a GTX 460) with an otherwise pretty comparable system, apart from the disk setup and of course graphics card. That is why I predict somewhere around 900 - 1000 seconds for your system.
I'd get the 210 graphics card and definitely use CS5 over the older versions.
ok two fast questions
when u say about 900 to 1000 seconds what are we talking about?
and when u say my system would be 4-5 times slower than a fast system what system are we talking about? i mean what would that "fast system" be?
thanks a lot.
Did you go to the results page at the http://ppbm5.com/ benchmark site?
That will answer your questions about the meaning of a FAST system... and where a system like yours will be... which is about at the bottom
Off course i went to the results page at the http://ppbm5.com/ benchmark site, but if that really answered my questions i wouldn't still be asking dont u think so?
Besides someone before in this thread mentioned a fast system and the question was directed to that person not to you.
Why would you go with an Intel motherboard? To my knowledge I do not believe you could overclock it to gain additional free speed..
Can you get to a Microcenter store? If you can walk into one you can pick up an i7-950 for only about $35 more and have a real processor
What do you not understand?
A fast machine has test results like this: Disk - 56/65, MPEG - 20/25, H.264 - 43/54, MPE - 4/6, total time around 130.
Your expected results are likely to be: Disk - 200/250, MPEG - 300/350, H.264 - 200/250, MPE - 200/225, total time around 900/1000.
If you answer, it avoids confusion if you reply to the post you have a question about, instead of replying to your own post.
Since you'll be using Premiere Pro CS5 I'd suggest going with a GTX-470 video card to take advantage of the CUDA support and the MPE.
I've found around the stores this other motherboard: asus p7p55-m so is that one better? it says, on the official site, that i can easily OC it.
Is that true? do i need OC anyway?
And another issue and i'm sure u've heard this before: ATI or NVIDIA?
are CUDA cores so important?
which one would u choose between these two models?
xfx ati hd 4670 pci express 2.0x16, 750 Mhz core clock speed, 1Gb video memory, 128 bits memory bus, GDDR3 memory, 1600 Mhz memory clock speed.
gigabyte geforce gt 220 pci express 2.0x16, 720 Mhz core clock speed, 1Gb video memory, 128 bits memory bus, GDDR3 memory, 1600 Mhz memory clock speed.
You need an Intel i7 950 if you are going to edit High Definition, which requires an X58 motherboard and AT LEAST 6Gig of memory, 12Gig is better... plus AT LEAST 2 hard drives, 3 drives are better
My CS5/AVCHD 1st Impressions http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694?tstart=0 includes a link to the computer I built... since the GTX 285 is no longer sold, I would now go with a GTX 460 that is cooler and quieter and faster
For my home hobbyist, family movies (which means that I am not trying to recreate Star Wars with video effects or many layers) AVCHD editing is "as smooth as spreading warm butter on hot toast" (also the MP4 video from wife's Flip camera)
My 3 hard drives are configured as...
1 - 320G WD Win7 and all programs
2 - 320G WD Win7 swap file and PPro projects
3 - 1T WD all video files... read and write
These M.B. HAVE: 4 SLOT RAM MAX 16 DUAL CHANEL, 1 PCX 16X, Horrible coolin system and a integrated Video card .
Is a realy good toy but not for video editing.
BTW not H.T. It mean a loooooot.
We want you to make the best for your money please let ous know how mucht you are ready to use a we will give you good imputs.
ADK make good pc and they will give you the best for your money if you are not realy into hardwares as I can see.
Bill and Harms will tell you the best choices and try to get the info like something very usefull.
Of the top 20 performers on the PPBM5 Benchmark
12 out of 20 use an i7-980X processor,
12 out of 20 have overclocked their system,
5 out of 20 use dual Xeon X5680 systems with 48 GB memory,
1 out of 20 uses dual Xeon X5680 system with 24 GB memory.
19 out of 20 use a raid set-up.
Only 1 920 and 1 950 system, both overclocked and with only 12 GB memory, appear in that list.
It has been said before, the P55 mobo's are not suitable for editing. If you want to invest in a slow system, go ahead and get the P55 mobo and corresponding CPU, but even with overclocking it will still be slow. Around ten times slower than a fast system.
the answer to that is very simple,
I CAN'T AFFORD THAT
