Budget HD video editing build.... Am I doing this right?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
One of my really good friends is trying to make a TV show with his buddies. He called me and was asking about editing 1080p video and had me check out his laptop and see why it kept locking up when editing....

He was trying to use Adobe Premiere elements 9 on a single core sempron laptop with 2gb of ram to edit HD video

Told him to come up with as much money as he could and we would go from there... He saved up $650

Heres what we have so far:

MSI X58 Pro board: $50 (RMA from friends pc shop)

i7 940: $150 (here on the forums)

2GB X3 Ram 2 kits: $48 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148425

2TB 7200 rpm 64MB cache HDD: $129 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148506

530W PSU: $49 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182199

Recert GTX 460: $119 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814133394

Case & CD drive from my junk pile. He has W7 that he bought for his laptop but never installed.

Any comments concerns or changes you would do? How well will this work for him editing his HD videos?

You would be MUCH better with an i7-2600K. The x58 platform CPUs may have more threads, but the 2600K's execution cores are more powerful. If you go for the 2600K, go for some G.Skill RAM.

Otherwise, get some SSDs or perhaps setup a RAID1 / RAID5 Array for reliability.

I would say the motherboard should be unused, the power supply be from corsair, and an unused video card. Rest looks fine.

The 2600k is pretty much half his budget...this would be easier if you can put some extra $ on the table.

Ok so for the money allotted does anyone think I can do better?

Yes SOME corsair PSU's are nice.... To expensive for this build and rosewill is much cheaper and still good quality,

Corsair & G.Skill ram are nice but there's absolutely nothing wrong with crucial and its cheap....

And I challenge you to show me a CPU and motherboard combo used or unused for $200 that is more powerful than what I have found

I am no video guy. But if im not mistaken depending on the software used. Most video editing is CPU, and RAM mainly. you may not need a dedicated graphics card. I believe you may be just fine with the onboard graphics, in the sandy bridge 2nd gen cpu,s. but you will need a board that supports it ( h67-z68)
You might be just fine with a 2500k and onboard graphics!!! I could be wrong !!

I guest an i5 2400 is better. You should probably switch the 460 with a 9800gt/gtx/gtx+. much less than a 460. I would do a build right noe but my itouch is extremely limited at multitasking.

This

AFAIK Adobe Premiere Elements 9 does not support GPU acceleration, all the encoding will be done solely on the CPU. (However a super cheap GPU will probably still help better previewing the video, then an onboard which will struggle playing back 1080p)

A 8800GT for instance can be found verrryyy cheaply, or donate an older gpu you might have lying around.

One possible improvement (although could always be made later) is more RAM as video editing previews eats RAM (and trust me, you do ALOT of previews to get that perfect edit).

How about this Antec 620W PSU for $50 AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371048

As for the GTX 460 you're not going to use it if just editing movies. If you're gaming then fine but if you're using it as a workstation then just get a cheapo card (in the sense it's about $20 cheaper and also since you're probably going to want to play games on it occasionally anyways).

$100 AR for a 5770: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102873
or $134 AR for a 6850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150505

If you want nVidia $100 AR for a 550 Ti: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814500193

PS: I'm not 100% sure if it will take advantage of it but if you can find something like a 7600GT or 8800GTX/GT you can softmod the card to the Quadro FX equivalent.
