  1. I have a question regarding the VRR support that has recently been added to Nvidia 20 and 16 series GPUs. VRR is a feature that was implemented on HDMI 2.1, but support has been added to Nvidia's HDMI 2.0 GPUs. Is there anything inherent to the standard of HDMI 2.1 that requires a 2.1 cable to be run between the display and the GPU? Or will a 2.0 cable suffice?
  2. I'm facing an issue where I'm trying to hook up an Xbox One X to a Schiit Jotunheim external DAC, which only has USB audio as its digital input. The Xbox has S/PDIF optical output, which I've struggled to find a way to adapt to USB audio. The potential solution I've found is to use an ART USBPhonoPlus V2, which has an optical Toslink input that can be recorded to a USB output. The issue is that the USB output can only be sent to a PC, not directly to the DAC. So what I'm looking for is a way to take the USB audio input that would be coming into the PC, then send it back out over USB to the DAC, with minimal latency. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. If any of you know of a simpler solution to this that would introduce less latency, that would be wonderful.

  3. There are two reasons that I'm not looking at the RX 480. One is that I'm planning to upgrade to the new titan card, or a SLI 1080ti's when it launches. The other is that I'm buying a GSync monitor, which would make it make absolutely no sense to not have an Nvidia card.
  4. I have considered using a xeon for this build, but have been concerned with the low core clocks and lack of overclocking that would come with it. As I've said, I'm upgrading the graphics cards again fairly soon, so going crossfire 480's wouldn't really make much sense for me at this point in time. I do still want to do gaming with this as well, so having a xeon would be objectively worse for that purpose than an i7, though that wouldn't be the main purpose I know. The 6900k seems like a good middle ground, with being very good for video work, along with being overclockable and still being pretty good for gaming and single threaded performance as well.
  5. Indeed it is, well I think that just about covers everything, I'll just show you the final cart: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/7BBTBP Thank you so much for all your help, I probably would've wasted a whole lot of money without it.
  6. Okay, well the only thing I might change is the kingston SSD's to fit a bit more with the colour scheme, but other than that, all seems to work. And only works out about $80 more expensive than before I changed the motherboard and added more SSD's. Of course there were other sacrifices though.
  7. Cool, in sticking with the red and black kind of colour scheme, I'm wondering whether it would be worth it to spend more on the msi godlike board. I'll see if there are any other motherboards that fit that description in the workstation type range first though elsewhere.
  8. True, so about 500gb for the boot drive, then will 480gb be enough for the video work ones do you think?
  9. I feel like that's going to become too expensive, I can just have the system drive run on a single SSD instead of on two in RAID 0, that'll solve that problem.
  10. The wireless card was because the other motherboard didn't have one in there, forgot about that. I will recheck the colour scheme, I was originally going to be going with black, red and silver. Don't know how achievable that is. There is a problem with that motherboard and that many drives running in RAID though, as it would need one more sata 6gb/s compatible port to have either the boot drive, or the video work drive in RAID 0.
  11. Didn't realise I hadn't changed the motherboard or ram, so here's the proper version: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/Myrmqk
  12. Okay, so because the price was going up dramatically, I've dropped the usable HDD space down to 4tb, and the boot drive SSD space down to 2 250gb SSD's. Now I've got 3 240gb Kingston SSD's, 2 for the video work, and one for the caching. Only thing I'd be concerned about is whether 480gb would be enough for the video work SSD's. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/zFhKBP
  13. I do plan to be gaming on it as well, so that's good to know. So all in all, have one or two small SSD's as the boot drive, another one or two SSD's for video work, with a cache SSD for that. Then have as many hard drives as needed for mass storage, all being backed up to I presume separate drives as the best idea, in case of the backup drives failing. Does that sound right?
  14. Sounds good, that's storage worked out, as well as motherboard and ram. Would I really need to change the monitor?
  15. So, keep everything how it is for the HDD's, just have an ssd dedicated for video work, and offload the footage onto the HDD once it is finished, where everything else will be. Then of course keeping the constant backups going. That sound about right?
  16. Okay, that makes sense. If the HDD's won't be good enough for actively working with 4k footage, then would you recommend going with large capacity SSD's? Because that's going to get very expensive, very quickly. Especially if I was to be looking at RAID with them.
  17. The originally had planned to go with an Asus X99 Deluxe, but they have since sold out on PCCaseGear, not sure about the Gigabyte board though. The ram is overkill, I think I just put that there as a "because I can" kind of thing, as well as the aesthetic of the ram itself.
  18. I realise that especially with the monitor, that is very much focused on gaming, so I could definitely change to something more focused on editing on that front. For other things to do with gaming/editing, would you be referring to the graphics card?
  19. I am looking to build a PC in the very near future for mainly video editing purposes, but also with gaming as an important factor. I'm 17 and live in Australia, so my budget will be in AUD. My maximum budget for this build is $10000, though I would prefer if it were closer to the $8000 mark. These are the components that I am currently looking to place in my build: http://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/f9qbXH There are a few things that I'd like to explain about the components that I have chosen, mainly the large amount of storage and the use of a 980ti. The reason I have opted for a 980ti over a single, or multiple 1080's is that I am holding off for the upcoming Titan card, or the 1080ti. When those products come out, I intend to fully water cool the system. But in the mean time, I still need this build to be assembled and running in the next four weeks, due to an editing project at school that begins at that time. Along with this build, I am planning to upgrade my current Canon EOS 600d to a Panasonic GH4, with the intent of working with 4k footage; hence the high end nature of the build. As far as the HDD's and SSD's go, I wanted 6tb of storage for video files and other general media such as games, but wanted there to be a level of safety involved. So I decided to opt for RAID 10, as I feel that RAID 1 is too much of a waste, especially when I was going to use four drives anyway. Then with my boot drive, I am more concerned with performance than absolute safety, so am using two 500gb SSD's in RAID 0. But redundancy isn't the same as a backup, so that's what the 8tb and 2tb WD external HDD's are for, used for the HDD's and SSD's respectively. This build will be a massive upgrade to my current PC, which is a prebuilt made by HP from 2009 I believe; running and Intel i7 870 and an ATI Radeon HD 5570. For the purposes of editing 1080p 30fps, or 720p 60fps, or even extremely light gaming, my current PC is painfully slow. As I want to work in 4k, a drastic upgrade is needed. I know that for a first build, this is very expensive; but I know that if I make a lower end build, I will want the higher end performance anyway, and will feel that that current build would have been a waste of money. Any suggestions as far as alterations to the build would be greatly appreciated, thanks
