    If you have an RRX card in the mix, I wouldn't mess with the GPU upgrade. RRX accelerates R3D workflows more than any GPU setup you can install in that Mac tower.

    Adobe only uses multiple GPUs for a few things -- some render operations in Premiere, for example. Playback is single-GPU only. Depending on your other apps used, you may or may not see real...

    Your best bet is to talk with MacVidCards. The 980 TI should be a nice companion to the old Mac towers -- provided you have at least 8 cores in there at 2.6GHz+ and enough RAM to drive the thing. ...

    I think computer hardware in general is somewhat cryptic as to which is the latest and greatest. Sure, higher model numbers usually represent the newer offerings, but numbers don't mean much to...

    The 31" LG is nice, IMO, the pixels are a bit larger than I would like for that resolution, given the current trend of how resolution is being used. I do highly recommend the monitor though. While...

    These players are great for driving 4K displays and signage -- trade shows, retail spaces, etc.. That's what they're designed for. Too bad some of the more directly functional players are not as up...

    Er... That's because most vendors are price-gouging on it since not many carry them in stock for some weird reason. NewEgg has a few "open box" ones, or did recently, for under $500 and they're a...

    Have to agree with Jarek. Most USB hubs are crap and I really don't have any recommendations. The advice of larger power supplies is almost always bogus -- most USB hubs under-power or incorrectly...

    This is correct, these are additional components that are not directly required as part of the system build. Not everyone coming into this will want or need that sort of RAID storage, the internal...

    You won't want the HC version of the cards with the C70 case. There just isn't enough room for a proper reservoir and liquid radiator system along with this motherboard in this case. Not to mention...

    Windows 10 is shaping up nice. ;)

    That said, I would recommend 8.1 Pro 64bit right now. I do like Windows 7 a bit more for some minor reasons, but 8.1 is the overall better OS. You may or...

    If the Quadro is truly beneficial to you. But be sure to investigate that before you spend the extra money.




    I'm using a 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD, which installs into a dedicated M.2 socket on...

    Reflecting back on my build list...

    ASUS X99-E WS motherboard - $485
    Intel i7-5960X CPU (8-cores, 3GHz) - $995
    64GB DDR4 2800MHz rated RAM (G.Skill RipJaw 4's, 15-16-16-35) - $730

    Yes, the LTO-3A system was a proprietary nightmare. If your 'A' unit is functional and it's the tape drive inside it that has failed, you can [or *should* be able to] replace it with any Quantum SAS...
  15. Is there any particular reason you need this...

    Is there any particular reason you need this exact unit? Also, as far as I'm aware, all the Quantum LTO-3 units are interchangeable, so if you can round up a TCL33xx or more common unit, you should...

    All very subjective. Resolve runs just fine on a nMP, but it may not perform in a way that one individual user wants or needs it to. OTOH, the most kick-ass system you can build is still going to...

    Mixing GPUs from different series or families is usually problematic on some level. Typically, most software will actually cripple your more...

    The actual building part is pretty simple. Assuming you're not a klutz and you can operate a screwdriver. Making decisions on which components to use is something that depends somewhat on experience...

    Glad you have it working. The single port version of the card is working great here too. I found out only after trying it and then confirming with some people at ASUS (more like pulling teeth) that...

    The housings and mechanics are top notch. I feel the lenses are a bargain, but optically still leave a bit to be desired. They show more CA and fringing than I would like under high contrast...

    Had to tune down the overclock, even with the extra fans added in. No crashes, but I didn't like what I was seeing for temps. Airflow seems fine, but the second GPU is raising the MB temperature...

    All seems to be working fine. Once I got the TB card to play nice with everything else it all fell into place. :/

    Even though the TB card posted in slot 7, I don't think it will properly work...

    Still wrestling with some PCIe issues here, but I think it will get sorted in a few more reboots.

    Here's my current slot configuration:

    1: Areca 1883i SAS RAID
    2: Thunderbolt EX II
    3: GTX...

    Heh. Less than 10 minutes later I have it working... <knock wood>

    ASUS needs to seriously address their BIOS issues. I want to say it's complete rubbish, but they're still better than Gigabyte...
