Which is the best mobo for video editing x79 or z77

I am building a new video editing rig and was wondering which motherboard would be better? I plan on using the Quadro 4000 card.

More about which mobo video editing
  1. if your not going to game with the rig and it a work rig i look into a server board using the c200 chipset. the x79 is the c200x chipset with some of it turned off. the z77 and x68 chipset would be fine too there more for a home pc. if i was building a render box i would spend the extra money on a server board and xeon chip for it.
  2. for EDITING, its about RAM. but for encoding, the ivy bridge (Z77) is a better price/performance than sandy bridge-E (X79)

    Yes, Quadro 4000 is recommended for Avid.

    I'm only running Avid Studio and the Xeon is a little out of my budget. Here is the selection I am looking at, any suggested changes are welcome while still keeping it under $2500 ( I am at about $2420 right now).

  7. Interesting, the Rosewill case is a copy of the CM 690 Advanced w/USB 3.0 support (I/O loop not USB 3.0 header) but it's a nice case for the money. Personally, I would probably opt for a better HSF and either a Corsair H100 (my pick) or H80. The SSD is fine for the price. RAM - I would opt for the F3-12800CL10Q-32GBZL, the performance is negligible and IMO use the savings for a 6-core i7-3930K; IF you live close to a Micro Center $500 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0376493
  8. That is a good build IMO, but agree with Jacquith, go for the 12800 RAM and save some money.

    If you can extend yourself to i7-3930k that would be great (note however that at micro center, the 3930k is $500 but the 3820 is $230, which is $270 difference).

    For video editing you probably need more hard drives, do you have them already?

    Good case and RAM suggestions. Unfortunately, I am not near a microcenter but will likely follow your advice on the i7-3930K.

    Thanks

    I agree with both yours and jaquith's suggestions, the i7-3930K is the way to go. Yes, I do have separate storage dedicated for footage, just wanted the SSD for a boot drive.

    Thanks
