What do you guys think of these.
Yet to be built so things can change, but I'll be going with one option very soon.

(Advise and thoughts would be most welcome)

1st option; quad core speed machine

Intel Core i7 920 2.66Ghz
750W PSU
2 x 1TB Seagate Drives
8Gb DDR3
Gigabyte RADEON HD5870, 850Mhz
2 x 24" Full HD LG Monitors
(nice blu-ray burner/player, nice sound card and 5.1 surround)


OR


2nd option; 8-core render whore

2 x Intel Xeon X5550 2.66Ghz
750W PSU
eVGA GeForce GTX285 675Mhz
2 x 1TB Seagate Drives
12Gb DDR3
2 x 24" Full HD LG Monitors
(nice blu-ray burner/player, nice sound card and 5.1 surround)


It's approx. $2k more for the 8 core.
What should I build/ change or should I get an 8 core MacPro. (apperantely quad core Mac Pro's are too over priced for what they are and you'd be better to build a quad core PC)

HP Pavilion Elite d5000z ATX
2.4 GHz AMD Phenom X4 9750
8GB DDR2 RAM
NVidia Geforce 9500 GS 512 MB
2x 500 GB Hard Drives
Sound Blaster X-Fi Extreme Audio
19" Widescreen Display
17" Standard Def Display
Dual Boots Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

ASUS x83vm Laptop
2.13 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4 GB DDR2 RAM
Nvidia Geforce 9600M GS 1GB
320 GB HD
14.1" Widescreen Display
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit

I am not happy with the GPU in my desktop. It has a power supply that only delivers 385W on the 12V lines, it delivers 425W max to everything else. Do any of you know if I would be able to run a 9800 GT on that power supply?

I've been debating the dual Xeon route for awhile now. After a lot of research, I've come to the conclusion that as of today, the best option for that kind of power for the money is an i7 920 overclocked anywhere from 3.3ghz (easy as hell to do) to 4+ghz (if you have a D0 chip) and 2 Intel SSD x25-m (generation 2) hard drives in raid 0 for windows and programs. Then use WD black 1 TB drives as storage... As far as video card goes it think the 5850 or 5870 is the way to go. Makes no sense to spend 3 or 4 times the money for dual xeon for not much improvement in performance, if any.

@newfad,

Wow wicked - where did you buy your parts, NewEgg? What software are you running on it, CS4? Would love to hear how it runs - especially if you're using it to edit any AVCHD footage in Premiere because I've got my eyes on the i7 series. My Core 2 Duo stutters and dies on AVCHD footage.

@AllenEllis

Yep, Newegg is my saving grace... they have the greatest service there...
umm as for the software i have for this beast are as follows:

-A newly installed windows 7 ultimate OS (have not tested all my program with it just yet, i hope it wasnt a mistake)
-Adobe CS4 Production Premium
-Video Copilot
* designer sound fx
* real clouds
* evolution
* film magic pro
* pro scores
* video stream hd
* riot gear
-Microsoft office (student)
-Microsoft Office Visio
-Sony Vegas Pro 8
-Norton 360


When it come to this whole computer graphics and video animation, i consider myself a NOOB at best, but im learning and i have andrew kramer to thank , and this awesome website that he put together!

Anyways when im editing footage im working with vegas pro, i began with vegas and just resently got into aftereffects... i havent really touched primire so i dont know the answere to your question. as for the footage i work with im using a P.O.S. Panasonic PV-GS29. i know it is far from anything fancy but its all i have to work with right now... i have my eyes out on a couple new cameras that i want: sony vx2100, sony xr200v, cannon 5d mark 2. anyways with the panasonic i have right now it shoots in your standard DV 720 x 480, but when i render i render it HD to give it a little better quality.

anyway the i7 kicks butt in rendering, although im still tweaking the setting on my overclock to get optimum performance out of the set up. i still think i can get it a little faster. with the setting right now i can work in a full 1080p comp in after effect and stream through an animation flawlessly with adaptive resolution on, i mean sure there are going to be times were your going to have to set up a proxy but the i7 worth it.

i mean if your looking to overclock get the extreme, cause they introduced the "D0 Stepping" wich in a nutshell means that you can get more clock with less voltage, and that means your running at cooler temperatures... the cooler your system the more efficiant your system is going to be... im running fans in my set up.

anyways lemme know if you have anymore questions about anything i didnt touch on...

Wow thanks for the info. Glad to hear the i7 is working out for you, I hear great things about it from everyone!

wow dual quad, thats fierce for sure...
i like when Andrew mentions how long it takes him to render his proxies or and projects...
it gives me an idea how my computer is performing against his...
now im not saying that i wanna have the faster rendering machine, its just going through some of his tutorials i was just woundering if it should be taking as long as it was to render...
but id love to see his specs and a pic

probably my next attempt for overclocking my rig, will be bumpin up the bus speed and lowering the multiplier...
heard you can get a faster clock with some low temperatures that way...

but ima look into it some more before i start playing with that...
