Is there a list existing somewhere for this without a lot of explanation? I just want to know what components to buy for Premiere Pro CS5 that will do XDCAM HD 1080P in real time? Dual Steam HD 1080P would be nice if possible ?
I need a tower with PS, MOBO, drives, RAM etc etc. What is best for me to buy that will do the above with room to spare?
Does anyone know the answer to my question ?
Thanks Bill.... I might be able to get the info I want from the computer tab on that web site. I am in Canada and will be buying all the parts from NCIX.com in Toronto. This is why I am looking for a list of computer hardware so I can put one together myself. I want to make sure that the hardware components I buy will serve the purpose and be better than just minimum requirements for Premiere 5 or maybe 5.5 when I buy it next month. I don't want to just buy a bunch of stuff and then realize a month later I should have bought hardware components for this build that might have been better.
Chassis, PSU, mobo, CPU, CPU cooler, video card, memory, case fans, HDD's, BRW, extensions.
OK ... Thank you. Now that I know what is in a computer can you tell me the following?
In a computer that is designed to do the task I originally asked and is running either Vista or 7 .......?
1/ What is the preferred MOBO? Brand and model?
2/ What is the preferred CPU? Brand, Speed etc?
3/ What is the preferred chassis ? Brand and Model?
4/ What is the preferred CPU cooler? Brand and Model?
5/ What is the preferred graphics card? Brand and Model ? bor both Premiere 5 and the new release 5.5 ?
6/ What is the preferred memory? Brand and how much of it ?
7/ What would be preferred for case fans ? Brand and how many ?
8/ What would be preferred for HDD's? to do full 1080P HD (dual stream playback?) and real time rendering of HD? What brand and speed etc etc 2 or 4 or 8 drives RAID 0 ?plus boot drive etc. What brand(s) work best?
9/ What are BRW extensions ?
10/ I would like to run three flat panel monitors on this computer for lots of real estate or at least 2 as a minimum.
Will all of the above work together properly without conflicts or other issues?
Is there something I am forgetting to ask here ?
Help with this is greatly appreciated.
Thank you !
Anything around $ 20 K in mind or more? Or is it less?
Your question looks like you want a boiler-plate answer without investing time and effort. Well, my daily fee is around € 1,600 excluding VAT. Contact me by PM for an offer or investigate yourself.
Maybe you ought to have a look around this forum and start with the Overview tab and start reading those articles and the many posts around here.
No need to get snotty! I am investing time by asking the questions where I thought their might be answers and I have read through some of this forum. Its not Rocket Science here .... just wanted what I thought was a simple question answered.
I will look elsewhere to find someone who knows.
Thank you !
This is what I'm getting tomorrow.
Intel P67BG (Other boards are not available in my country)
16 GB RAM Corsair Vengeance
2 x WD Velociraptor HDDs
Corsair 750 PSU.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the suggestions ... Much appreciated! I will do the suggested reading and go from there !
I think that Intel-branded motherboard, despite it being the company's top P67 motherboard, is less than ideal for one big reason: It is more difficult (or more appropriately, trickier) than most other brands to get a high stable overclock using the UEFI BIOS's own available settings.
What would be more ideal ?
I can't speak for the others since they aren't easily available in his country. However, that particular Intel-brand motherboard could be improved upon with regards to UEFI overclocking options: Some of the necessary settings are either missing or buried under a different name. In addition, it is the only Intel-brand P67 motherboard with even two PCIe-x16 physical slots to accommodate even a discrete hardware RAID card or a video I/O card should someone sees the need for it. The other Intel-brand P67 motherboards have only one physical PCIe-x16 slot. And if one needs both an I/O card and a RAID card in the same P67 system, forget about the Intel board since it does not have a third PCIe-x16 or even a PCIe-x4 slot that's needed for the I/O card.
Oh no! The computer dealer said that overclocking is possible. Is it going to be tough to do? Should I wait for the other MSI or Gigabite boards to hit the markets isntead?
Do we have any tutorials to overclock this system.
Overclocking is possible with that Intel-brand Extreme Series board. It's only a matter of hunting down the correct settings for the clocks, voltages, internal overvoltage and load level calibration, in this case.
Thankyou, Ill be sure to emphasise on the "extreme".
Hope your build went well.
I also use NCIX and have been very happy with them.
If you can't find a particular item at NCIX, feel free to pm me for other Canadian suppliers I've found useful.
Haven't actually built it yet. Still trying to put together a list of parts that is better than just the minimum requirements.
I have used NCIX many times and yes ... they are an excellent supplier.
