Budget of 4,000$ USD - Page 22  

post #211 of 415
if you want a super strong computer use some of that and build a phase change system. Youll still have more money left over and have constant 5ghz

4,000USD, to bad I bought the monitor. but Then again you guys said don't get one so good for me.

-John

PS: Why is these so expensive? Style?
Alienware's Markup comes from the style, and the warranty they put on it.

Actual advice:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After reading through all these pages I was happy to see you bought the 3011 Monitor. It really helps to have the "legroom" to see everything you're working on displayed at once.

His original suggestions were definately price driven, but in the computer world getting the "best" and getting 80-90% of the "best" will take you from a 4.5-5K build down to a 2K build. The consensus sofar seems to be to avoid building around a sandy bridge processors (i7 2xxx) because of a recent recall.

I would suggest a single processor LGA1366 motherboard (that's the socket type of the CPU's it can take) A Motherboard the board that everything plugs into to interface the different parts of the computer).

This leaves a range of Core i7 CPU's to choose from. The most recent ones are the 980x(6core) and 970(4core). These are "gulftown" which basically differs from "bloomfield" in the size of the transistors (tiny switches inside 32 Vs. 45nm) and a larger cache (super quick memory embedded into the chip). Although smaller is better the difference between the two is generally not worth the price difference so i would go with something around the 950 you had selected earlier.

Ram is like your computer's short-term memory and with video editing you'll need a lot of it. I would suggest a 12GB "kit" which is 3, 4GB sticks of ram. This is more than enough for what he'll need and you will have the ability to throw in 12GB more if down the road (3-4 years) if he needs more. LGA1366 takes DDR3 and look for a combination of both high speeds 1600-2133mhz and low timings (lower than 8-8-8-24)

Think of it this way, if you put 6GB in right now, he would not realistically be limited but ram isn't that expensive so 12GB is about the sweetspot for usefulness/cost.

The videocard he linked to you is a top professional's videoediting card but the internal hardware on that card is what is found in a $400 gaming card. The difference lies in the drivers and memory type. The Quadro series puts an emphasis on image quality and stability but the difference is imperceivable to even some professionals. if he was rendering a movie for Pixar he might consider the card he posted.

Realistically a GTX580 or HD6970 are the high-end options for him. I suggest these two as well because of their high video memory ammount (2560x1600 is demanding).

"SLI" (or CrossfireX for AMD cards) basically means using 2 graphics cards as one, to theoretically double their performance. HOWEVER, this only applies for applications that support SLI/CFX and even ones that do only see about 180% performance Vs. One card. Also, they share a virtual "pool" of memory equal to the size on one card, so 2x 2GB cards = 2GB of total video memory

Personally, having used 3 Multi-GPU setups in the past, see it as a waste to immediately buy two or more Top-of-the-line cards. Its more of an upgrade option down the road as you can add the second card later based on need(at a much lower price).

I wish you luck in your purchases/building experience.

PS: I don't think giving him the money is a good idea, unless you give him the monitor+budget, then get him to come back to you with a build within budget (taxes and shipping included)

Hey John, is your son gaming a lot? Or mainly for college work?

If he games, add a GTX580.

As a PSU (Power Supply), you could go with a quality Seasonic X-750.

-Kevin.

PS: Really good choice on the RAM, they're pretty good, I've got them my self.

No, simply no.

He does not need a 1200W Power Supply for that rig, he will barely use up to 500w with an 980X and a GTX580, a Seasonic X-750 would be the perfect choice.

Gosh there is so many choices, it's like candy and doing my Taxes....
good thing I came here.

I need to read up. Especially about the alienware stuff, I seriously thought that was the route to go, guess not though.

SyncMaster753, thank you for writing that.
This is one case where I will not recommend that board. It is a great board don't get me wrong but even with your budget money could be better spent. I would get the Rampage 3 Formula instead. Newer, and 100 dollars cheaper. Plus I doubt he will EVER need QUAD fire or QUAD Sli. Spend that 100 on a SSD.


Plus that RAM is duel channel and will not work well in that board. You need triple channel memory. I will PM you with a build.
