APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: July, 1, 2010 BUDGET RANGE: $2,000 Before rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Adobe Flash Media Encoder.

We have several video streams that we send out to the internet, ranging form 720p hi def to 64k audio. We are currently using 3 Mac Mini's, and 1 Mac Pro to Encode and we want to build a PC that will handle as much of that as we can throw at it.

The only thing this computer will be doing is encoding video, it probably wont even have a monitor, keyboard or mouse hooked up to it after the initial setup. So every part that doesn't affect its ability to encode can be as minimal as possible.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: hard drive, keyboard, mouse, monitor


PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA



Current Thoughts on Parts:

Processor: Core i7-930, anything else I should Look into? is there something better specifically for encoding? Im willing to overclock, so if you think its necessary feel free to recommend an after market heaksink also.

GPU: Not sure about this, will having a decent GPU help Flash Media Encoder at all? I've done a few searches but haven't found any solid evidence that it will.

Motherboard: Im thinking the Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R, any better suggestions?

Ram: Thinking 6 Gigs, I can upgrade to 12 if it seems necessary

PSU: Will something like the CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W be able to handle it?

Not tied down to any particular brand or config, let me know what you think!

Thanks,

^ You should take a look at the new AMD Phenom II X6 1090T - 6-Core CPU
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-phenom-ii-x6-10...

Here is a config...
AMD Phenom X6
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM -
Corsair 4GB DDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo -
MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
- This has a pretty powerful onboard video, so if any discrete graphics dont have any advantage, then stick with this...and also you can add 1 later on if needed...

Case + PSU
You wont need 750W IMO...This 550W is of very good quality and should handle it without any issues...

HDD - Samsung F3 1TB

Or
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

IMO you can build 2 of these with your budget...

Exactly the info I was looking for!

Thanks for the link to the benchmarks, it makes way more sense to go with the Phenom x6 for what were going to be doing.

Appreciate your help!
