Im planning to build a new beast computer for hd vjiing or multi screen running on win7.
My principal worry is the processor. Im wondering if reslume 3 has been programmed to use full potential
of a dual xeon multiprocessor..? Should I use the fastest ; i7 processor or two slowest;
xeon for about the same price ?
Im planning to put two graphic cards (that I already have) : sapphire HD 4650 1GB HM DDR2 PCI-E HDMI
for the interface display and a : sapphire HD 4770 512MB GDDR5 PCI-E DUAL DVI-I/TVO for
dual output for resolume.
My question about that is ...is it better to use two identical video cards ?
Is the 4650 will slow down my 4770 ?
For the hard drive part, i read in some previous post in the forum that using solid state drive gives a big difference for R3 performance. So I decide to be all solid state; for the os and resolume drive i will use a patriot Torqx 64GB and for the medias i will use two patriot Torqx 128GB in raid with esata in the enclosure Patriot Convoy XL (http://www.patriotmem.com/products/deta ... 37&type=19
The Patriot Convoy XL looks promising for vj or I'll wait a bit for an even better solution for the medias drive : photofast G-Monster-PROMISE PCIe SSD 256GB or two ioxtreme and use my old g-sata for the moment
Im planning to put 6 gig of ram but i know how resolume loves ram.
12 gig would make a big performance difference ?
Im also planning to put one of my black magic intensity to get full HD input.
Did someone successfully used it in r3? On my mac pro (tower) its seems not working...
I will use a rackmount case to be able to put in a roadcase I already have.
I think this beast will be fantastic!
I'll start building it next week.
Hope to get your advices, it would be more than welcomed!
