Feedback on build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
If you anybody can build me a system for video editing from this site for about £670;
http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/category/configurator

I'd really appreciate it

What do you think of this build? It's mainly for video editing and design work.

Anything you'd change?


I'm thinking of keeping both my 8800's, but I'm guessing only one slot runs at the full X16? Would it be worth SLI'ing them?
Quote:
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (single at x16)
1 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (@x4 mode, 2.5GT/s, black slot)

Thanks!

hmm, I'd recommend i5 2500K rather than this.

Also, build your own smile.gif, I bought my first one from pcspecialist but I realised I should not have.

What's the difference between the i5 I have selected and the 2500K? It's a fair bit more expensive. I haven't been following CPUs for a while now so I'm pretty much new to it all again.

I would build my own again, but I don't have the time any more. I have University, work and personal projects that pretty much take up all my time. I also like the warranty side of it as I've had plenty of problems with this and other builds that I've done myself in the past.

If you anybody can build me a system for video editing from this site for about £670;

I'd really appreciate it smile.gif I'd like a quad core, 8GB of RAM and the option to maybe keep my SLI set up. Thanks!

For video editing you need Hyper Threading to boost those rendering / encoding times, plus you need a minimum GTX 470 to fully take advantage of Adobe's Mercury Playback Engine, but you haven't mentioned what software you're going to use to edit.... I can go into the technicalities later if you're using Premiere Pro.

My sig rig should give you an idea of what a video editing machine looks like, but it's not within your budget, so I'm not quite sure what to recommend to ya.

Also, you do realize that overclocking on H67 mobo's is limited right? Plus the 2500k doesn't have HyperThreading.

I'm wondering if you'd be better off with buying some used 1366 gear from the marketplace, it would make more sense.

Thanks for the reply, man!

I'm going to be using Premiere Pro, should have mentioned that.

Is it only the i7's that have the Hyper Threading? They're stretching my budget a little bit. I'm currently using a Q6600 @ 3.2Ghz, it gets the job done and isn't all that slow. The i5 is much more in my price range and I'm sure would be much better than my Q6600. I'm sure I could get a better deal if I bought 2nd hand, but I want the warranty and such.

I'm going to be using two 8800GTS' 512MB in SLI, as again; I don't have the money for anything more. I know there's lots more I could do to gear it more towards video editing, like buyig SSD's but I really don't have all that much money to throw around.

Nah, SSD's though certainly will help, it shouldn't be on top of your priority list with your budget. Also, having your cards in SLI won't make a difference, since Premiere only recognizes the primary card.

Seeing that you already have a computer, what parts can you use towards your new rig? I'm not exactly sure which new parts you're buying, or if you're looking for an entire new build?

the i5-2500k should work out well anyhow, but see if you can find a processor with HT as it will greatly benefit you. I still think you will have better results by getting yourself some used 1366 gear. I would take a 930 over a 2500k for video editing any day!

You could also consider a 1090T as that was my 2nd choice at the time I put my rig together, and may work with your budget.

Plus, I would highly recommend a better Nvidia video card, as that will make a HUGE difference in Premiere, I would recommend nothing less than a GTX 460 1GB for your budget, for best results a GTX 470 is recommended, but the 460 will certainly do a better job than the 8800's.

This pretty much sums it up:

I'm looking at replacing everything, so getting an entirely new build.

Hmmm. I could maybe stretch to get an i7 or a GTX460; which do you think would be more beneficial?

If you could put a build together off this site;
http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/category/configurator

For about £700 that'd be sweet as, really appreciate the help so far, dude smile.gif

For starters I'd focus on your video card that's for sure, as that will give you a big performance boost.

Check this out:

I'll play around with that site in a bit, and see what I can come up with, as I gotta get some work done right now.

It'll be tough to get a good 1366 rig for that budget, is that including VAT?
