Default New PC build for Edius and Vidblaster

Hoping for some tips on a new edit computer to run Edius and Vidblaster which is simply awesome live switching software.

Hardware wise I want to run the HD Spark and two Black Magic products. One is the Intensity PRO which is a PCi HDMI/Analogue capture card and also the Black Magic Shuttle which is similar but a stand alone breakout box that doesn't go in the computer (not a PCI device).

Below is a list of motherboards recommended by Black Magic. One thing I would like to have is the fast h264 encoding spoken about on other threads.I would also like the maximum number of USB 3 ports possible. Can anyone recommend from the list below. Thanks guys.


Asus P6X58D - Premium
Asus P6X58D
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD7
Gigabyte g1.Sniper (rev.1.0)
Intel DH67BL
Asus Crosshair iV

Default Motherboard tip

Nothing like advice from a PRO. Thanks for that, hopefully the shuttle will work with it.

UPDATE: Some guys on this forum are saying the Shuttle will not work with the ASUS p8z77-v Premium but will with the Asus P8Z77-M & another motherboard called P8Z77-V LK

Any Vidblaster users out there?

The Shuttle was designed for use with the X58 chipset. Getting it to work on other chipsets has been a hit or miss proposition. The key to the operation is using a Renasas/NEC USB 3.0 chipset.

If you move to a newer motherboard,and it doesn't work, you could install a Renasas driven USB 3.0 card. I would do the research to figure out which card will work for you prior to purchasing a new motherboard.

While I agree with Mark on using newer tech, I have a new 3770k build and my old tech 980x still outperforms it in real work load editing situations.

The two benefits of the Z series boards are price and Quicksync. Since you are interested in getting the encoding speed, I would go with a new Z77 board and find a Renasas driven USB 3.0 card for the Shuttle.

On the other hand, I wouldn't build the new system around the USB 3.0 Shuttle. Have you considered an Intensity Pro, Decklink Card, or the Intensity Shuttle Thunderbolt/Extreme versions. You would need a board equipped with a thunderbolt connection for the Thunderbolt or Extreme Shuttles.

If you do not belong to the Black Magic forum, I would join. Search to see what others are using and go from there.

The premise for my suggestion was that you use Blackmagic Thenderbolt devices, which this motherboard has been certified for.

Default ooh thanks for this info.

Thanks guys for this most valuable information.

UPDATE: I cant do an exchange for the Thunderbolt version and so now may have to sell it on EBAY. I also have the intensity PRO but was looking at using the shuttle for flexability of when I may need to run another camera with Vidblaster.

Still keen to go with the Z77 board and get the fast H264!

The Premium may still be available in Australia but it has been discontinued here in the US. Amazon has 5 of them at $600 each.
I would contact BM to ask if the V-Pro Thunderbolt board would work with the Thunderbolt Shuttle.

We all know how current many of these types of lists are.

Well guys I am all set for this week and the new PC build.

Jerry you mentioned in an earlier post that the old tech 980x board performed better with Edius than your other newer motherboard.

What things in editing were better?

Looks like though I will go with the Premium board. Looking forward to those mega quick H264 renders.

So its Asus P6X58D - Premium motherboard, 16 GIG ram, mmm what graphics card?? (not sure here any tips welcome), Grassvalley Spark card, 2X Blackmagic Intensity PRO HD/SD editing cards. Externally I will run a Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt version).

Hoping there will be enough PCI slots to run all that.

Thanks as always for the tips. I'm like a kid in a candy store.
