  1. Thanks guys. That clears things up. The motherboard was the one thing I really didn't research that much last time (2009) because there weren't many boards that had the features that I wanted.
  2. Hey, one more question. I notice on pcpartpicker that there was a warning message about the board needing an extra 4 pin connector for power that my power supply didn't have. I tried a few different supplies, and then filtered the pet supply results by '8 pin + 4 pin' and got 2 real results. Would a Corsair RMx 650 gold not be able to run the ROG Strix B550 F? If not what kind of power supply do I need? Thanks again for all your help.
  3. Talk about into the weeds... I think I'll just go with one of your suggestions. I don't think I have the time to look at all the datasheets for all the components for all the possible boards, as interesting as that might be. I figured this would be the right place to ask this question (I typically don't ask questions on forums). Thanks for your great input.
  4. Thanks for the tip. Really I just selected a few peramiters and sorted by gb/$. It's still just a rough build to get an idea of costs.
  5. Wow, that was fast. What constitutes a good 'vrm solution'? Thanks for the board suggestions. Just for my curiosity, what makes those boards good? The reason I went with Nvidia was because he mentioned that premier pro works best with them (I assume because of the cuda cores). It's been a long time since I've gone into the weeds with PC hardware. Also, I could see how having good food IO would be handy. Most mobos can't handle their coffee/mountain dew ;).
  6. Hi everyone. I'm sorry if this info is elsewhere, but I haven't had any luck finding anyone talking about motherboards for video editing. I'm building a video editing PC for my brother in law. I haven't built a PC in a decade, so quite a bit had changed since then. What are some considerations/features I should keep in mind when picking a motherboard for video editing? Also, how in the world do I find out if I need to update the firmware for a ryzen 3rd gen CPU? I would have no way of doing that since I doubt my Core2 Quad will fit in the AM4 socket (without a hammer, of course). I did see the LTT video on a budget 4k editing, but all it said about the board was that it "had the features we wanted" without explaining what those features were. It also said it was $95, but pcpartpicker shows it at $250. Here is my rough build right now, but any input would be welcome. Also, I don't know how much overkill the 3900X would be, if LTT build a machine with the 3600. Same thing with the 2060 vs 1660/super/Ti.

I'm just a little lost and need some direction as a jumping off point. Thanks for any input you guys have.
