My main concern is if the memory will work with the board. the DRAM QVL for the board dose not have it listed but i was wondering if i should take the risk and get it. Let me know what you all think.

  1. You have no responses here because you are making us guess what NLE is.

    Non-linear editing? Adobe?

    If that is all you are doing on this computer I doubt you need the GTX 470. GTX 460 would run cooler and do anything you needed.

    While the XFX PSU is very nice, it is also overkill. The new X-560 is fully modular:
    Dead silent at the loads you will be using, and more efficient.

    That's quite the case :) Well, it will work great I'm sure.

    There is no way to tell about the RAM... but you got a good kit.

    Without more specifics I can't say. You might be better off looking at dual Xeons, just depends on what you are actually doing.
  2. Yes it is a Non-linear editing system running Adobe.

    The GTX 470 Is one that Adobe recommends. I was looking at doing GTX 460 in SLI would that be better
    I would have to do the hack to get MPE in adobe with GTX 460.

    And i will be editing HD video on it .
  3. Ah if it's a question of software compatibility, stick with the GTX 470 then. You don't seem to have any sound requirements, so it's no big deal.

    That's a good price on the 2TB F4s, but a WD RE4 would be faster and probably more reliable:

    If you are more interested in reliability in the drives than speed:
    costs less than the RE4s
  4. I was looking at those Western Digital AV-GP drives I'm still up in there air about my storage drives I'm hoping they have some good deals when i go to order

    I'll be sticking with the GTX 470 then it easier.
  5. I recommend WD over Samsung for other reasons as well... some of their factories have come under fire for poor working conditions. While I don't think the HD factories are a problem, I like to vote with my wallet ;)

    A secondary reason maybe. I just prefer WD for reliability also.
