  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 US
  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 pret
  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?
