I’m trying to build a system to last for the next six years. My main uses are website authoring, video (HDV HDMI) streaming, editing and production and general internet and home finance use. Gaming is not a priority. Upon review of some of the factors that I must consider are cost (lower is better), form factor (I have a 17”Dx17”Wx24”H enclosure for the CPU) and continued upgradability. The configuration that I have settled on at this time is as follows:
There are some challenges to your build. Including the upgrade ability of this system.
Two PCI-e cards to only 1 available PCI-e slot on the GA-880GMA-UD2H MB. You loose 1 PCI-e slot to the double wide GPU.
- Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro HDMI Editing Card with PCI Express
- Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner 1213 PCI-Express x1 Interface
It looks like the MSI 880G-E45 880G HDMI MB would work in place of the GA-880GMA-UD2H
