I forgot to mention that I usualy film with my HPX170
This summer I will edit a red one project. And I will shoot in 16 and 35 mm which will be transfered HD to highest quality.
OK if you want to buy one os those cpu go for the i7970. 6 cores vs 4 cores in the i7960.
"COOLING : Corsair Hydro H50 CPU Liquid Cooler"
Performance of the H50 Is nothing great I can say. I have hav many of then. go for a h70, or even better makke your own water cooling system.
VIDEO.: GTX 285 Was grate GPU but now is to old technology, only 240 cuda cores, DDR3... You better buy a GTX470 or a O.C. GTX460.
OS Windows 7 64 bit " PRO"
Question 1: Should I get a RAID controller?
IF YOU WANT THE BEST PERFORMANCE in the disk absolutly.
Question 2: What would be best HD config (here is what I was thinking)
Read this link: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2397179#2397179
Would this be a good raid controler?
I dont want to pay more than 300$ for now.And will my windows 64 bit pro recognise it automaticaly? Do I need additional software to go witht the card and setup the raid 3?
For the liquid cool. I already purchaised it. But the case has a lot of fan. Did you check the model? Tell me if you think it is enough with the liquid system added. I will buy a GTX 470, they are not expensive. I was thinking EVGA.
Rather look at this one: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816131003
It is a PCI-e 8x card, instead of PCI-X. You don't need more software than is supplied with the card. I suggest you also look at http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816151039 which brings you over budget, but has 8 ports and a faster IOP and with Red material you may want to increase the number of disks in the raid in the future. The first option has only 4 ports.
The EVGA 470 is a very good card.
The case look very god, with the H50 Overclocked your pc You will rise 3.8 GHZ under 39 ºC aprox. With air 4ghz OR + if the temp is optimal (if temp>=25ºC will be other history.
For raid controlers talk to harm or bill. They know all about it.
