Default I need to buy a new PC for edit. Help to choose the right one?

Hi, happy new year for all,

I need to buy a new PC for edit , that would be suitable for edius, other programs.
Some one told me that we can make our own computer , as we can buy
our computer parts separately and combine them together to make a pc. and by this way we can make i7, i5 ,......etc .

but also I know that there is a wide range of workstations that are used for edit. Which is better to buy a workstation or to make my own computer through buying its parts and mix them to make it ??

give me your opinion and choices ,

bye

Hi. I think it would be better for you to seek a professional to build specifically. If you have never built a PC before now is not the time to start (on an important business tool).
Yes we could give you a list of parts to buy that suit but if you have no experience in building them, it might be the worst mistake you have ever made. Generally first time builders should be trying with a system that is not mission critical.

I built my own PC, listed below, about two years ago. I have never done this before, but with research from the internet, it was not too difficult. I am still happy with the performance of this PC even though there have been advances in hardware since then.

If you build a PC from parts, you can choose exactly what you need and it makes it easier to upgrade later. The warranty on some parts might be longer with retail versions than OEM parts.

I previously owned a Dell workstation, which had parts that could not easily be changed later, such as the motherboard and power supply.

There are a lot of questions you need to answer. What software will you use to edit ? Adobe CS5.5 and Vegas will use a Nvidia graphics card to accelerate editing/encoding but Edius does not as much for example so you need to be specific as to the main editing software as it does make a difference. Will you want to encode a lot for Bluray. Edius currently has the advantage in being able to use the QuickSync of the current i7 etc. What is you source video files ? etc etc.

You will still need to answer these question if you get one made anyway.

I have been making my own PC's for over 20 years , as a hobby, and prefer to know what I am using.

I too use Edius and Vegas and my system works just fine. You can see specs in my signature. A more powerful video card would work better for CUDA acceleration but I find that CUDA acceleration in Vegas is not that great anyway and all my video is done in Edius so encoding etc is Edius favored. If you need the system soon then look at a Z68 board and i7-2600K like myself and many on the forum. If you can wait until the next series ( Z77, i7-3770K )you will get maybe a 15% improvement. Could be a few months though, April is rumored.

I just want to remind every one that this forum is for users to discuss hardware and accessories (e.g. motherboards, videocards, keyboards and other hardware) that work directly with EDIUS software and hardware.

Please stay on topic.

I have to agree with Mark. If you are unfamiliar with assembling an editing workstation, find an integrator that can do it for you. It will save you time and money in the long run.

Our local computer store will assemble the parts and load OS for about $30 and check that they all work together too. Well worth the money if one does not do this often.
