AMD FX Build - under $600 [Video Editing CS6 and Blender 3D] - Page 2

post #11 of 229
the 990x has 1 pcie @ 16x or 2 @ 8x or 3 @ 8x-8x-4x, the 970 has 1pcie @ 16x and a 2nd @ 4x. It has 2 more USB 2.0 ports. Be carefull to watch for the SATA ports that go straight up on the 970 boards and some have 4 pin ATX connectors instaed of 8 pin. Other than that they look close.

The G46 should be avoided with FX 8-core processors as it has a VRM failure record. The rest looks pretty decent.

CX600 costs less at Newegg right now

And get this HDD for the same price as more warranty

Would there be any difference between this $85 970 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280) and the $100 990? I know the 990 can crossfire, but I don't think i'll be needing that.i used to think that it was better since it supported 32gb ram, but they both do. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514 This one is normally $50 more, so I assume it isn't just the crossfireing gpus.

Also how would these cases be?

Also, is there a difference in the different types of ram out there? Like between 1333mhz and 1600, or even higher like 1866 or 2100 and up? Will there be a noticable difference? What about the timing? 9,9,9,24 seems to be more high performance but I don't really know what that means.
I basically just want to get the cheapest 16gb ram that I can that will work fine. Any suggestions?

Patriot Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $24.99 Newegg

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 1GB Video Card $134.99 Newegg

1. RAM: If you are going Premiere Pro CS6, please consider to have 16GB at least. Really.
And go for Samsung Wonder Memory and OC it to sth like 2133:

2. The most recommended card for Premiere Pro CS6 in Adobe PPro forums now is GTX 660 Ti. But you will be fine w/ plain 660.
The 600-series cards are consuming less power than 500 which is a big plus thumb.gif

Okay I guess I'll get 16gb then, its only $30 more. What should I look for in ram? Does the speed of it really matter? I heard that there is not much noticable difference between 1333 and 1600, and above 1600 its even less of a difference. I know nothing about the 9,9,9,24 and all of that stuff, does it matter?
I want to get the 660, but it is like $60 more than the 560. Is it worth it over the 560? I don't really care that much about the power consumption.

This is what Bill Gehrke, one of the authors of the Premiere Pro Benchmark for CS5/CS6, said 2 months ago about using 660 in Premiere Pro:
Quote:
I just added a new GTX 660 to my video card collection. And surprise it only has one six-pin power connector required and it only has a maximum power consumption of 140 watts, and for Premiere Pro CS6.03 it performs hardware accelerated MPE about equivalent to a GTX 570 (requiring two 6-pin connectors and 215 watts). Only $230!

Plus, the faster card in After Effects and Blender - the better for you. Do not forget that 660 has 2GB VRAM which is also important in some works w/ your programs.

You won't find better priced RAM than the Samsung's mentioned above. In programs operating intensively on memory data (think: 2D/3D graphics, photos, videos) it does matter what is the bandwith and the latency of the memory. Remember that 1866 is the freq. of the FX's IMC and with the Samsung's you can go higher. Link to the Samsung's on the Newegg and how to OC them w/ FX processor is in the thread I've mentioned in my previous post.

What about the CPUs? Would I be better off spending the extra money for a intel i5? I heard from some people that the amd fxs are '****' and I should get a i3 or save up for an i5/ i7, but i think thats just them being condescending. Will the 8320 be good? I want to get a 2500k or whatever, but I feel like its a waste of money when I can get 8 cores for cheaper, and I've always been an AMD guy.

With the kind of heavy-CPU-load-all-the-time work you are doing I would highly recommend that you pursue a motherboard with an 8+2 power phase.

Multitasking and video encoding: Going here w/ FX Vishera is a no-brainer biggrin.gif
Here's a foretaste of what Vishera can do:



I've bought (for the same apps as you) FX-8320 + 16GB 1866 RAM.
