Final details

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Need some final thoughts on these systems and where i might improve:

Raptor 150GB Serial ATA 10,000RPM Hard Drive w/16MB
Mitsumi FA404A/FA404M-Black 7-in-1 USB 2.0 Media Drive
Coolermaster CM Stacker 830 Aluminum Full
Pioneer DVR-710 16X Dual Layer DVD±RW Drive
Samsung 960BF SyncMaster 19in Analog/Digital LCD Monitor
Supermicro X7DAE Intel 5000X Dual Xeon DDR2 E-ATX Server Board
OCZ OCZ700GXSSLI GameXStream 700W Power Supply
PNY Quadro FX 1500
Intel® Xeon Processor 3060 2.4GHz 1066MHz LGA775Intel Dual-Core Xeon
2G Samsung FB memory 667mhz
Edius NX capture card w/HD option-Canopus
1 ATA/133 Controler card/going to install 3 DVD drives all master

So this system will used for Video editing/Authoring & WMV/REAL/QT/DIVX encoding using Squeez or Pro coder-2.Lots of rendering using Boris RED/Blue,after effects.

1.Will-Intel Dual-Core Xeon TM Processor 5060 3.2GHz 1066MHz, be better?
2.Never had issues with Antec before thinking about going with the 650W Trio PSU,but seeing so many good things with OCZ Xstream, not sure?
3. Love that Stacker case any other options??
4.Memory, from what i remember back in the day samsung made most of the memory chips for other venders(Still so)?,should i stick with a pure samsung?
5.Does this mobo do on board RAID-0 i dont see it,if not the best C.C. i can get
6.DVD,i need to rip & encode 400 DVD(non-protected)what drive offers the fastest ripping speeds, im sure my plan will work with a ATA/133 C.C on a PCI slot, 2 drives set to master not shared,1 onboard also,so i can rip 3 at once,anyone see a issue with this?
7.Drives-Raptor as system,what drives(fastest) should i go with for my Raid?
8.Quietness,should i replace the Xeon`s HS with aftermarket to keep noise low/better cooling?

Wait these`s more: System 2

Raptor 150GB 10,000RPM
Western Digital My Book Premium Edition 500GB 7200RPM Dual Interface
Pioneer DVR-111D 16X Dual Layer DVD±RW Drive
Asus P5B Deluxe P965 Core 2 Extreme/Core 2 Duo/Pentium Extreme/Pentium D/P4/Celeron D 1066FSB LGA775 DDR2 ATX Motherboard
Antec TruePower TRIO 650 650W Power Supply
EVGA GeForce 7950GT KO Superclocked (600MHz) 512MB GDDR3 PCIE
Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Full Tower Case w/Side Panel
Intel® Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe Processor 2.4GHz, 1066FSB, LGA775,
Corsair TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2GB DDR2-675 XMS2-5400 Xtreme
ATA/133 C.C

Pretty much the same use, also might try to slip a game or two in there!!

1VD-drive`s same question but on this system will the DC2 be able to handle ripping the 3 Movies at once?
2:External H.D is there a better one then the W.D?
3:Internal fastest H.D for my Raid-0?
4:There goes my Antec ,should i?
5:Case- looking to save somewhere, also like the shark by thermaltake!
6:Video card-I have to call Boris tommorw and find out what BLUE uses to on the Video card to Preview its projects,now RED ran fastest on Video cards with the most"Texture memory" which i think means the most memory,not sure if i need to go this high I already have the quadro on my other system..Whats your guys input on that?

To tell you the truth the only reason im going with the Xeon is because the Edius NX uses the PCI-x slot to do H.D editing otherwise i would be building two CD2,i saw somewhere the CD2 EE was just as fast as a Xeon 5160 (which is way out of my budget),now i would go with the EE if i could find a MOBO with a PCI-x to use with the CD2 EE,can you guys help school me on these issues with the CD2 EE vs 5160!

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this and any info would be wonderful,as you can see im spending some nice cash here and want to get it right,i`ve been away from building computers since the 875 was new and lost some of my touch along the way..

Peace

If you are doing alot of video editing you will need more than 150GB hard drive space. Raid 0 a pair of 250GB Perpendicular drives or raid 0+1 if you can afford it

Oh but of course i just did not post anything till i was sure what i wanted,im going with 2 WD SE16 500KD 500G Raid-0 on each system,also dropping the Raptors for SE16 250KD 250G as my System drives!!

I know i wrote a long Arss post all i need a little feedback on now is.

PSU-Antec Trio Vs the Xstream?
Will my 3 DVD ripping at the same time work as per my plan?
Which DVD has the fastest video extracting speeds?
Should i go aftermarket HS..

Also im going with the newer 5130 woodcrest CPU`s

Happy turkey day
