    Did you configure Apple RAID card etc? If you don't get RAM, hard drives, and RAID cards from Apple, it will be way below $10k....and you'll have room to get yourself 2 capture cards (EDIUS & maybe a DeckLink card)

    Yeah, I remember when I configured a MacPro it came up to the same without all of the software and Kona card.

    If you are going that route, either something like what Anton built or even a MacPro with bootcamp would be cheaper.
    If they are local for you, well that would make a huge difference.
    Just seemed pricey to me.
    $10,000 is with all the bells and whistles including a $2200 video card and a 2TB hardware RAID 5 array. Unless you do a lot of 3-D rendering and process huge files, you will never use the full potential of such a system. Our 8 core systems start at just under $3,000 and you get a lot of hardware for that sum.

    Hello Coleman:

    My name is Regis and I am a technician at Cerise Computers.

    We use industry standard parts so yes, our computers are compatible with Edius

    10K is a hefty price, now I suddenly remember why I build my own.

    If I would build a new system today I would most likely switch to a Mac Pro with boot camp.

    What level of HD are you going to?

    More cores for Edius is not your best usage.

    NX is a terrific investment, worth every penny.

    I am switching to HD and I'm concerned about render times and encoding. I also really want to see what I'm editing on an HD monitor which means I guess I'll get the NX PCI-e card.

    As you can see from my system spec's I'm using a S5000XVN with a NX PCI-e card with Edius 4.61.

    What card are you planning to use ?

    I wouldn't say 'should' when it comes to Edius. 12 years of Canopus/GV experience has taught me that. It is better to use the word 'hope.' At least that will not give the original poster the wrong impression.

    I am using a home build system with the same S5000XVN workstation motherboard, nice and stable !

    I'm only using 2x Dual core, that means 4 (when Hyper Treading not counted), not 8 cores, and Edius doesn't make use of all Available power.

    Only while rendering while using specific settings it will max out all cores, given enough workload to process.

    Future softwares should be able to make full use of all cores, including the next Edius, Procoder etc.

    started a topic Eight Cores

    Eight Cores

    Will Edius be able to take advantage of 8 cores? Here is a link to a 8 core workstation. http://www.cerise.com/workstation-eight.htm
