    Building video editing PC




      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.

            Hmm.. choose the non-K and H77 because i didnt plan on overclocking, as ive never tried overclocking.. Would you recommend 3770K and Z77 chipset if I overclocked ?

              Yes (at a minimum).
