  • System Hardware Config.

    I've been out of the loop for a while and I recently upgraded to Edius 4.5. Without going into any great detail, I'm simply looking to get the most (best performance) out of what I've got, which is:

    Supermicro X6DA8-G Mobo
    Dual Xeon 3.4Ghz
    4GB PC2700 Reg. ECC 333mhz RAM
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT PCIe
    Raid 0, 2 x 37GB Raptors (OS)
    On Adaptec Embedded Series ATA HostRAID Controller
    Raid 0, 2 x 120GB Seagate Baraccudas (Video)
    On 3ware Escalade 7000/8000 Series ATA Raid Controller
    WinXP Pro (32-bit)
    Canopus HX-E1 Board PCI
    Edius 4.54
    Xplode Pro 4.04.04

    I have not had any major issues, outside of a couple of crashes using 3D effects and Trans. and buffer stallation during the same, but I just get this nagging feeling there's more to be had out of what I've got. So I ponder:

    1. Should I upgrade to a Nvidia 8800GT and does the PCIe 2.0 matter if my board is too old and is it?

    2. Are there any basic settings or configurations to software or hardware that I have forgotten about that are essential for Edius and my current system (which is a dedicated editing machine)?

    3. Will updating my bios (mine is 4yrs old) help in any way?

    I know this is sort of Newbie, but it's more rust than rookie. At least, I'd like to think that.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      I would just make a disk image back up of your OS raid, as if one of those raptors where to go you will have an easy way to get back up and running. Other than that it looks good to go!

        Thanks for the reply. I do get the vulnerability of the raid 0 and I do BU. FYI, I do have Xplode up to date, I took the version # off the Xplode config. App. Dhoy! My question today is:

        I recently purchased a Velocity Micro for my daily tasks and internet. Basic setup is:

        Intel® P35 ATX Motherboard with DDR2, PCI Express, 1333MHz FSB, RAID DP35DP
        Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6750, dual 2.66GHz cores, 1333MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache
        2048MB Corsair™ DDR2 PC6400 DDR2-800 (2x1024)
        Would upgrade to 4gb
        500 Watt Velocity Micro® Power Supply

        If I were to move my Edit setup, including the same Drives and Configuration, how would the two compare?

        Thanks for your time.

          Is your NX, PCIe or PCI-X? You may not be able to install the NX board into your new config. Check that first!
