$5500 build for heavy video editting/graphic design - Page 2

post #11 of 75

This looks much much more for gaming than anything else.

I would go for some kind of dual CPU setup, like a server type config or even a SR-2
Yea I agree... I was just having fun with the $5500 budget.
If I was being more serious, I'd drop 2 of the GPU's and go with dual cpu.

But, still.... Even professional CG designers don't need that kind of power imo.

For all those who are reccomending gaming video cards, i dont think that would be a good idea in this scenario... workstation graphics cards are DESIGNED for heavy graphical design/rendering. They are rather expensive but i would look into getting one of those instead of the standard gaming cards frequented around here.

5000 is alot of money, and the price of components in the US are cheaper than AUS. u can get a really powerfull pc. i say go for a sr2 build.

EDIT: ^



EDIT 2: nvm it didnt quote properly about the bad link
I honestly have no idea. I'm not in the club myself. Although I have heard them talking about this program called "Mia" a lot, or something like that. I don't know how to spell it. I assume Adobe CS4 will be used as well since all the computers already have that installed.

EDIT:


This is probably way out of the budget buuuut:

I am by far no expert on these cards, but im hopefuly steering you in the right direction, the math used for gaming is completely different than graphical editing.

You're gonna want a 1336 Hexa-Core build, not a Sandy Build. [Video editing, more cores]

And for $5500, go dual-socket. Grab an EVGA SR-2.

havnt heard of MIA myself, maybe u meant MAYA.

but i recommend a SR-2 build since workstation g-cards cost alot. (although u have a choice to flash the bios).

aircooling would be fine, since its in a controlled environment.

Yeah, that is probably it.

Also, regarding the dual CPU set-ups, is there anything extra you need to do to set it up? None of us have experience with dual CPU MB's.

the only difference in a dual cpu motherboard will be. you will require 2 sets of ram (for each cpu, possibly 8gb kit for each one) and the cpu has to be the xeon's with dual QPI.

will you guys be overclocking this?

I'd go with a GTX 590 or anything Nvidia. I feel like more applications use CUDA than whatever ATI's implementation is
