      NZXT Phantom PHAN-001RD Red Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

      ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

      Total $2912.83

      Would have liked a raid 5 for media but the Asus X79 does not have enough Sata 6Gb/s the Asrock version has but does not have the SSD Caching port

      which I think and hope will work well with the 2 SSD cards. 1 for the OS and the other for the Globel cache for AE (not set up as raid 0)

      Maybe down the road I could add a seperate raid card to run 3 extra drives on a raid 5 ?

      Any way I would love to your feed back from you guys before I pull the lever on this as all this jazz is pretty new to me. I have built a few systems in the past but

      would like to get better on AE. Going this time for ease of performance and as little bottlenecks as I can and at the same time keeping it simple.

      Cheers

      Murph I am no expert as this

      Found this on  Adobe TV  How to optimize AE for High Performance. It made the most sence to me.

          Looks good except for the PSU. That Cooler Master GX series PSU is not a true 750W PSU to begin with. In fact, it cannot reliably handle more than about 500W without killing off some of your PC's vital components. So, that PSU is totally unsuitable for a PC with such a higher-end, power-hungry CPU and GPU and more than a single disk.

            Thanks will look into that. What power supply would you reccomend ?

              With the disks that you have listed, go with a Corsair AX760i (which can handle its full 760W rating and then some, unlike the GX750). If you plan to add a few more disks in the near future, then go with the AX860i. However, you will have to pay quite a bit more money for such higher quality.

               

              Note that I don't work for Corsair, but it is one of the few brands that do not have any really bad PSUs in the lineup.

                Yep the AX860i is quite a bit more but yes having the a quality power supply available for extra disks sounds like a good idea.Still close to a $3000 system

                Thanks
