Default Building a PC for EDIUS

Hi guys, I'm just migrating across to PC and Edius after the Final Cut Pro X debacle. I'm used to just buying an all in one Mac and it doing the job so aren't really up system requirements and what not. I have a friend helping me build a PC and this what he's recommended me based on some specs I sent him. Just wondering what guys think and whether you have any recommendations.

CPU:
Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.30GHz POWER RATING - 7,194
Graphics Card:
Radeon 1G HD 6870 POWER RATING - 2,844
RAM:
Patriot Gamer2 DDR3 1600 (4Gx2) 8G
MOTHERBOARD:
Gigabyte H61M- With USB3
WD Black SATA3 2TB (high performance hardrive)
64 bit Win 7 Home Premium

Thanks!

Do yourself a favor and give Mark Shueard of on2dvd a ring. He is a respected integrator here on the forum and in your area (down under). It may save you a lot of headaches.

Hi Mate... welcome to Edius and the forum.

Your suggested config would not be my choice... as Pjsssss suggests contact Mark and you will be in very good hands..... just think of him as your iMark agent ;-)

Best
Dave

Thanks for the on2DVD recommendation guys. I'll give them a call tomorrow though I suspect they are a bit too high end for me there. I'm a very impoverished independent film maker and I need to pick up my components as cheap as possible- particularly as I have friends who can get me discounts and have no trouble building a system. Still I'll give on2DVD crack.

Reading through similar threads here I see the i7 with 12 gigs of RAM is recommended as a base. I've seen the graphics card I mentioned recommended a few times. With the upgrade on the i7 and the RAM am I on the right track?

Default Building an editing computer

Dom,
The website www.videoguys.com has a lot of good information
on building your own video editing computer.

Give them a look.

Videoguys do not recommend the Sandy Bridge CPU.

I built my system specifically for Edius but Adobe's CS5.5 flies on it.

You cannot do much better short of a dual CPU system than replicate my system

I knew someone that ordered all of the video guys recommended equipment and then had a "computer" friend build it. It did not turn out too well.

You cannot imply blame on Videoguys just because someone built a PC that does not work properly.

Videoguys presently recommend the very same MOBO that I am using which happens to be in many of the other edit systems whose owners frequent this forum so it is a tried and tested MOBO.

For me that MOBO together with COMPATIBLE tripple channel memory in three sticks and a hex core 980x gives me a very stable fast system that plays 5 video streams in realtime each with colour correction plus one other effect to each stream
