I have a nice conquest to solve. I assemble computers for people since many years now and a friend of mine asked me to plan a 4k/6k workstation for him.
Im experienced with selecting good parts, but then it comes to video-editing I thought it is the best to get me some help from people that are into this domain.
The only thing that is a fixed component is the video editing card he told me, as he is filming with the "Red Dragon Kamera"
He needs this video editing card
As you can see the card alone costs like aprox. 7000$, so the rest of the workstation should be suitable to that high class of hardware!!
Im now thinking about different kinds of solution. For example then it comes to the CPU I could say: letz think big and take the "Intel Core i7-4960x hexa core"
But on the other side a "smaller" CPU maybe fits its usage enough.
The total budget is not clear at this time. I think he is like "I need a solid station, so I can work with 6k and have fun, money plays no role"
So now I have to plan the different stations, like: Which SSD/HDD, storage-concept (as projects in 6k are huge in storage-room needed)
And the biggest of all questions first:
We want to build a "Hackintosh" with all these components. So I have to determine if all the components work in a hackintosh-build. Think the video-editing-card could be a problem, should ask in some of the hackintoshforums for that.
If anybody have some impressions it would be nice.
