  • Motherboard for NX Express??

    I'm looking at getting an Eduis NX Express Pci-e card and wondered if it would be compatible with the Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard. I have looked on the hardware listing and it doesn't show but there is nothing obvious which would indicate I should have any problems.
    I would have thought if anything it would be down to the chipset on the board.

    I have just had bad times with Gigabyte motherboards.
    If you stick to Intel , they are stable ,relable , and very little issuses with hardware or software. The only thing they are not as fast as the Asus ,Supermicro ,MSI etc . Most people here which I seen uses Asus and I myself am looking at the Asus Stricker Extreme motherboard . just my 2cents

      I have generally not had problems with Gigabyte boards and I'm on my 3rd. Currently have a AMD 4600+ but want to change as the current board doesn't have PCIe to support the NX Express boards.

        How about a Gigabyte GA P35C-DS3R with an Intel Core 2 Quad-Core Q6600 G0 SLACR ?

        Can someone please tell me if this should be ok? I have never had any real problems with past Gigabyte boards

          I have had good luck with Gigabyte boards also but it has been awhile.

          You might consider going Intel chips now as they seem to have an edge in speed.

            Decided to go with the GAP35C-DS3R board and a Intel Quad core CPU. The board has an Intel chipset on it too.

              I've always been a fan of Asus....but don't see anything bad with Gigabyte.

                do you guys think quad core is the way to go seeing as edius is not using quad or is it better to go for duel core extreme

                  1) Quad Core is cheaper (Q6600)
                  2) You can easily overclock it to 3.0GHz without a sweat with a good CPU Cooler (See Zalman CNP9500).
                  3) Future Proof.
                  4) Speed Encoder for HDV and ProCoder 3 (Certain MPEG2 settings) use all cores.

                    ok but for better performance on the timeline with hdv is the 2 core extreme better for now

                      Why would Edius not use Quad? I thought the software was designed to be scaleable and would detect the number of processors available and make us of them. If it uses 2 at the moment why would it not use 4?

                      I could be wrong just seems a little strange?

                        Do you mean the constant and historical "claims" of scalable technology where performance increases when your CPU's are upgraded?

                        Sad isn't it!
