    A case for GPU computing: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and the Mercury Playback Engine
    This project consists of compressed 640×480 video footage. These small video files were being eaten alive by the massive 1090T hexa-core processor and 8GB of RAM. Premiere Pro CS5′s increased performance with multi-core systems coupled with bleeding fast hardware will make fast work of any simple projects such as this, not giving the GPU enough work to really make a difference. These results do suggest that if you’re editing small-time video footage, you will not benefit much from using Mercury Playback.

    So assuming u not leveraging on Mercury Playback Engine:


    if things change nab something like a 1GB GTS 450 ^^

    Optional Items

    CM GeminiIIS cooler $38 Free Ship

    60GB Sandforce based SSD $120AR Free Ship
  2. What im trying to accomplish is replacement of my exisitng Daul Xeon system... It worked great untill the hardware issues. If i can get extra performence then ill be ahead of the game.

    Im open to Mercury playback
  3. No worries your old set up were dual single cores

    For simplicity sakes on the mainstream desktop platform lets just approximate it as a 3.2ghz OCed E4700 (though your was on 90nm fabrication process and this 65nm) hehe

    Even at this low investment price point the improvement is monumental to say the least :P
  4. When i say video editing i also assumed it would include video Encoding.... Sorry if this changed anything on the system you were looking into
  5. Nah encoding/rendering also loves more cores so it's all good hehe
  6. thanks Guys, IM gonna read all this and put a system together. Ill post my final system config
