i7 Based Video Editing System?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How much would a fast i7(preferably six core) system cost with 16gb of ram and 2TB of storage? Was looking at X58, but when X79 is coming out so soon I think the future owner can wait.




That any good for a rough price estimate?

I don't know if we know for sure when SB-E comes out, but it will be soon, so I'd definitely recommend waiting.

That video card is probably not the right choice for video editing, assuming you're using Adobe products. The 550ti has 192 CUDA cores, versus say, a GTX 460 in the same price range with 336 cores. As they improve performance and efficiency this should matter more and more.

Granted, the encoding performance gained by going from a GT 240 (96 cores) to a GTX 570 (480 cores) in Premiere Pro CS5.5 is merely 10 seconds on a 10 minute standardized clip. (see Number 9)

i think this is where ssd will come in handy.

X79 i read only has 2 6GB ports, so that might pose a limit to future fast storage.

Same thing with P67/Z68. However, most high-end mobo manufacturers include two additional Marvell SATA III ports.
