To build or not to build? Advice needed! - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Question: If you're going for video editing, why the P67 and not the Z68 with its ability to utilize the "k" in your CPU so to speak? You seem to be going for premium parts, and a Z68 is marginally more expensive than a P67.

What benefit would I get out of a Z68? All the research I have done has said to me that the p8p67 deluxe is going to serve me well in overclocking my 2600k and I am sure there are people on this forum who have hit 5ghz with that board.

Or have I missed something completely????????

Thanks!!!

the z68 will allow you to utilise the inbuilt gpu from your 2600k in order to further boost things like video encoding, I think not realy sure though anyone confirm or deny?

I just found this on the adobe forums...

"Here's the deal:

In the case of Premiere Pro CS5.x, the GPU-accelerated mode in the program's Mercury Playback Engine (MPE) is much, much more efficient than the software-only mode. However, the GPU mode currently supports only CUDA Nvidia GPUs. Any non-Nvidia GPU, including the integrated Intel graphics, will force MPE to run in software-only mode. So, while a system running CS5.x on an integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics and the QuickSync plug-in might improve software-only performance compared to the same system without the plug-in, it would still be significantly slower than if you're using just the Nvidia GPU in GPU-accelerated mode.

And to get the optimum CS5.x performance out of that 2600K/Z68 system, you must completely disable the integrated Intel graphics (this must be done manually in the BIOS settings; otherwise, if left enabled or on Auto, the "primary" PCIe-x16 slot will default to PCIe-x1 mode, which severely cripples MPE GPU performance with an Nvidia card installed into that slot)."

so from what I gather I will be fine with the P867 board because Adobe Premiere Pro will utilize my nvidia GTX 460/470 with a simple mod which will perform 10x better than running in software mode.

Refer to this thread. Disregard the first few pages, because they're filled with fanboyism and buyer's remorse, but they do teach a lot about the differences between the two, so come to think of it, read it all.

If you're not getting a Z68 (I'm not really a video editing professional and therefore can't comment on specific progs/apps and how they utilize the built-in GPU, which can run in tandem with your standalone GPU, a Z68 feature) then you might as well just get an Intell i7 2600 (minus the K).

erm...no the K in 2600k and 2500k much like the amd black eddition denotes an unlocked muliplier so assuming he wishes to overclock then a 2600k is more or less required.

You're right. I was tired after a long day at work + night shift. My apologies.

My point about the Z68 still stands though, if video editing is what the OP wants to focus on, I think.

Thanks guys


The thing is premiere pro utilizes the nvidia GPU.. there for will not get any benefit from the onboard graphics due to the grahpics being intel which is incompatable. I have not read that thread you pointed to yet because I am at work but I will check it out soon

thanks!

These are some videos to help you in building your computer, newegg posted them a few days ago.

- part 1 picking parts.
- part 2 the build
- part 3 OS/drivers

Hope this helps.

PS : The way he applies the thermal paste is considered wrong by most people. I would look up directions for your specific CPU/heatsink
