Hello, I'm trying to build my first system ever and would like to do some HD video editing with it. Components that I'm considering are:
Intel i7-950 CPU
Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
Asus ENGTX 460 GPU
Patriot Gamer Series 12GB(3x4GB)RAM
OCZ Onyx OCZSSD2-32GB SATA II for Operating System (Windows 7 home-premium
Seagate Barracuda ST31500341AS 1.5TB/7200rpm
LG Black 10X Blue-ray Burner WH10LS30
LG DVD Burner GH24NS50
Antec TruePower TP-650
Are these parts compatible? Am I missing something? Is it possible to have a BluRay burner and a BluRay reader/DVD writer on the same system?
Thanks for your input!
Thanks gkay09, I mostly do office related work (Office 2007) and I'm getting my feet wet with website creation. Once in a blue moon I "play" MS Flight Simulator. I'm planning to get the parts from newegg.com, since they have the lowest prices I could find.
Approximate purchase date: This week Budget range: 1,300-1500 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Productivity, HD video editing, Internet surfing, gaming (MS Flightsim), I'm a big multitasker. Parts not required: Mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers, OS, Case Preferred website for parts: newegg.com Country of Origin: (mine) Guatemala Parts preference: Intel chip, rest no preference. Overclocking: Maybe SLI or Crossfire: Do I need it? Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080
You can have two optical drives in one machine........hell you can even have three........no issues.........what about heatsink??????? dont use the stock cooler if you will be doing heavy duty video editing..............depends on the case you are looking at or already have............ just ensure you have scythe fans on the cooler............IMHO they are the quietest for the cooling done...........
Thanks everybody. I kind of remember that there was a problem with having 2 burners, perhaps with xp... and it stuck. So, 2 burners are ok? I am not looking into overclocking right now, so I'll go with the stock cooler. The case I'm recycling and old HP that went south... I've got my mind set on the Antek Skeleton.
- It has 2 older cards - GTS 250.
- The PSU that comes with it is not one of the best.
- You get CPU Coolers which perform equally good for far less money than that one.
- IMO that RAM is not required if not into high overclocking.
Thanks again gkay09, you've been more than helpful. I will go ahead and order my system. Too bad that I'm in Guatemala and will take about a month to get it here (sea) and out of customs... I'll let you know how it goes!
Thanks again gkay09, I assembled the system last night and got it running this morning... it is awesome. The only snafu was that the case that I intended to recycle didn't fit the motherboard, so I had to take it apart while I get a new case.
