Video editing $7k budget - Page 14

post #131 of 232
Stability is also key, and in that case, the socket 771 is definately an option. Server hardware is built for continuous performance under sometimes tough circumstances, more so than the LGA 775 stuff...

Video Editing doesn't need a server board, that'll surely be enough power.

If you want to be future proof don't waste $9,000 now when in two years it'll be replaced with a new Socket and DDR3 Ram...

Question: If Video Editing is CPU Intensive why would you need a $2,000 Graphics Card... When a 7950GX2 has 1GB of Graphics Ram, too?
video editing DOES take a server board and i know this because when your doing a huge movie you need it to be as stable as possible, if it crashes you could loose alot of work which is one of the reasons we are upgrading because a system based of a regular board crashes too much. and it doesn't matter if in a couple of years it is replaced by a new socket and ddr3 memory as long as in 3 years it still does it's job. about the video card i am with out on that one i do not need a $2000 video card

about the mac osx thin well i definatley won't be doing that then seeing that the church would be doing something illegal... i can only imagine, my friend would definatley be fired.

Chozart! Welcome back. I see what you mean... However, if you waste $9,000 today by 2008 a new Socket and DDR3 will be out, so if you go with LGA775 you can drop the total spend...

EDIT ///

{core2duo}: Okay, then for GPU what are going to use? You'll probably still need a lot of Graphics Ram ... That's why I picked a 8800GTX (768MB of GDDR3), 7950GX2 (1GB of GDDR3), and 7900GTX (512MB of GDDR3).

like i said it doesn't matter if it's replaced by a new socket and new memory because that will always happen. what matters is that it still does what we need it to for as long as possible.

yeah i was thinking about a 8800gtx aswell but the problem is that the server motherboards have pci-e 16x slots which support only pci-e 8x bandwidth. i have heard that that is a problem
post #136 of 232
I don't think you can run an 8800GTX on PCIe-8x...

Why is it that a PCIe-16x Lane runs at 8x just because it's on a Server board? So the Server can't be used to play DirectX 10 Games? *Gasp*

well i don't think i will be using this thing to play any dx10 games so were ok there.

I'm just kidding, but a 7950GX2 or an 8800GTX would be amazing for Video Editing due to there speed and GDDR3 Size, also, this will help performance over a 256MB Card. I guess you need to use a Card that can run at PCIe-8x.

There are server boards that run x16 on the PCI x16 slot, like this one:
http://www.tyan.com/products/html/te...00xt_spec.html

I believe this is the same board on the 'Egg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813151048

Also, do note that the 7950GX2 works a little different with the video RAM. It's not one card with 1GB, but two cards with 512MB each. Thus, this video RAM will be used in a different way than with a single card.

What is your idea about data security. I assume you don't want to have over a Terabyte of data on that thing and suddenly loose it all. How quickly you think you can fill up 2TB? I might recommend to get four 750GB drives and put them in RAID0+1 or RAID10. RAID5 could be an option also, but is not as easy to restore as RAID10 or RAID0+1 and generally has abysmal writing performance with onboard SATA controllers (although I don't know that last comment holds true for servers)
