New Build (Need a second opinion.)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Basically, the story goes like this. I decided to build a new computer with HD video editing and capture in mind. And I need to keep the final cost under 3,800. I don't mind spending every last cent if it's worth it since I'll be using the computer for both work and play.

What I need
  • 275+Mb/s write speed. [Presumably through a raid setup]
  • Efficient 3D Rendering
  • Efficient Video editing
  • Able to play and capture gameplay footage in 1920x1080 [Simultaneously]
  • 1TB+ of usable disk space.

My shopping cart thus far

Motherboard

Processor

Power Supply

Video Card [Tri-SLI]

Hard Drives x 6 [Raid 10]


Memory

Case

Bear in mind I still need a serious cooling solution as I intend to overclock. And that an extra 200$ is tied up in the Black Magic card.


Any changes or recommendations you guys have would be super appreciated!

Get this CPU to same some cash.

Definitely do not get all those Hard Drives. Get a quality SSD like this for the OS:

And two of these in Raid for Storage:

Also do not get so much ram. Get no more than 12GB although I think 6GB would suffice.

I'm not 100% sure if going with the cheaper CPU is the best move since the program I use for editing (Sony Vegas) works very will with more threads and performance is a must in this particular case.

Unfortunately those drives in raid don't come close to the necessary write speed. I was looking at those SSDs though, and though interesting I don't get enough storage space for the amount of $ spent to justify the speed. If I'm not mistaken I would be getting approximately 160 Mb/s writes in Raid 0. (I need 250 for uncompressed 1080p video capture.)

If I'm incorrect feel free to say so I'm just trying to make sure
