$800 video encoder?

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within 2 weeks

BUDGET RANGE: ~800 before Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Live encoding multiple Flash streams

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, HDD (sata)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: Doesn't matter, 64bit pci-x slot would be a plus though.

OVERCLOCKING: No

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: no, 3d video isn't important

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This will be used to encode ~4 streams of video live.... nothing else. Doesn't need to be flashy. A rack mount case would be a big plus, but something I can change later if needed.

  1. I was thinking the 1090T, even though its $100 more. I also don't need the SSD.

    1055T vs 1090T... worth it?
  2. 1055t better for encoding/price wise
  3. Reason i bundled in an aftermarket HSF is for you to lightly clock that 1055T The premium going from 1055-1090 ain't worth it IMO
  4. how's the ASUS M4A89GTD for a mobo?
  5. For me at its $140 price, if i am looking for a no compromise gaming board i'd look at the similarly priced Biostar TA890FXE (16/16 instead of the former's 8/8 for CF) Else for a non gaming /encoder it's just not worth it at all
  6. with the biostar I'd have to buy a video card too....
  7. Am not suggesting you do : hit a sub $100 880G or just slightly more in a nice combo with chip hehe
  8. Thanks for the help.... Here's what I went with:

    1055t cpu, asus M4A89GTD mobo, 4gb ram, AC64 cooler.... It all got here today minus the case (rack mount case will be here next week). I wanted to get it all going today so I can just plop it into the case and mount it in the rack.


    It's running 100% solid @~3.4ghz. Cost was under $600 shipped including the rack mount case & PS!
