    PC Build Suggestions?

    jsm1963 Level 1

      Based on some research in this forum I've put together this possible build.


      Up until now my projects have consisted of some wedding videos shot on single camera SD footage with finished product being about 60 minutes long.  The longest project I can think of that I've done in the past would be local awards ceremonies that ended up being about 90 minutes.  I'm feeling the need to upgrade to HD to keep up, so I'm looking for something that will handle the same type of workflow.


      For the immediate future I would be using my Nikon D5100.  Here are the video specs


      • 1080p (1,920 x 1,080) or 720p (1,280 x 720) HD recording at 30 / 25 / 24 fps
      • 640 x 424 SD recording at 30 / 25 fps
      • MPEG-4 / H.264 AVC compression, .MOV container


      Trying to save as much money as possible.


      Here's one build:

      I'm actually hoping I can bring the cost down even further, but from what I've read I may actually need a 4930K build.
