Im not saying it pertains to OP, but it does involve video transcoding.

Who knows, maybe it;ll eventually help encoding in the future. idk.
Did I really?

I'm sorry, buddy. You alright?

Also, the only two "benchmarks" that you did link to do not show the demolishing of anything.

ima say sr-2 build. rendering you want as many cores as possible.

EDIT:upon readn through properly. i agree with the tohers saying build a few computers rather than one monster

Because OP isn't in the club, and therefore has no say in what the club decides.

The Club President wants one big badass machine it seems.

@OP: Let your friend know that you COULD build more than one quality machine on that budget. 5.5k is a lot of money in one rig.

If they're using CS4 and Maya, or XSI, or Autodesk, they will be able to build atleast 2 rigs that can MANHANDLE those programs. And I imagine the footage they will be editing will be 1080p digital, so it's not like they are processing 32mm film

I would say with 5.5k you can build a low-medium end industry grade rig, but that's overkill for CS4 and Maya. You want to build a prosumer rig, so the builds that are being recommended with SSD's and Raptor's for scratch disks are the best. Also, a high end GTX should be more than enough. SLi two 580s and you're in business

I see NO reason for a $3000 workstation GPU.

All in all, I would try and convince them to build more than one, and build at a prosumer grade. Remember, this is for SCHOOL.. these PC's are gunna take a lot of wear and tear, and probably be a bit mismanaged. You want more than one for failover, and you DO NOT WANT TO SPEND 1000 ON A SINGLE PIECE OF HARDWARE. You need to keep the individual prices low in case something breaks.

TL;DR: Advise them they can get more bang for buck with multiple prosumer level machines, rather than one industry level machine. They won't be processing film, or doing digital grading or high end modeling/animation. A good processor, an SLi setup, and a large amount of RAM is a great foundation. Put the rest into storage and backup. Maybe even build a dedicated storage/backup machine.

I wish I had 5.5k >.>

EDIT: About Mac's there are a few things to consider..

Mac's are great for TEACHING, especially teaching Video Editing. Final Cut Pro has an excellent learning curve and is a great way to learn the basics of editing. Also, Mac's are easy to manage, and are designed with Creative applications in mind. For a school, I can see Mac's being a great choice.

But, they do carry a large expense, and you have less control (IMHO) over hardware.

Also.. I don't know if much of the professional industry uses Macs/Final Cut Pro. Sure, Macs are crazy popular in the low-budget/independent/prosumer scene, but they aren't used commonly in higher end video editing/modeling/animation. Generally those machines are custom built by companies that design them specifically for those tasks.

Nonetheless.. a couple Mac Pro's could be a perfect choice for that club. I don't know if Maya supports Mac though..

Yeah MAC would be nice -
e.g. the guy from grayscalegorilla has one = 10K
Thats too much.
For "only" video rendering you don`t need a sr2 and 12 cores.
If this would be 3D rendering ok.
So a nice 6core like the 990x would be fine.
I`m not shure if it is wise to o.c. it.
If you render a video and this thing fails then you have to re-render the whole thing.
(If you would render 3D stuff and choose as output an image sequence only the last few frames would be corrupted)
Cuda is well supported in CS4/5 and does make a difference.
http://ae.tutsplus.com/articles/news...-and-premiere/
But important will also the use of OpenGL:
http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/wor...after-effects/
There are several effects and plugins that render via OpenGL e.g. Boris Continuum Complete which is for AE/Premiere. You get a huge benefit using hardware acceleration.
So some really nice cards would be usefull.
Of course a huge amount of RAM (16-24GB) will be needed. The faster the better. 1600ish should be minimum.
This should be the main parts to start with.
First i would recommend not to o.c. this rig (or not high).
Second a 990x, two 580ers + 24GB RAM would give him a fast workstation work with which wouldn`t slow down his workflow! Guaranteed !
If it comes to rendering stuff there is an old ancient thing called "overnight-renderer"
