erichkeil Posted January 10, 2018 Report Share Posted January 10, 2018 Hi all, New to the forum and watchout. Recently started at a new company and inherited two WO v5 licenses with no hardware to use them on. From what I've gathered in my preliminary research my relatively new Dell Latitude Laptop should be fine as the control/production computer. Currently on the playback side I have need to drive 2 HD streams, but could see that scaling up in the near future. I've been doing PC research for the last month or so to try and get up to speed. I used to build machines often back in the day, but haven't built one in quite a while (probably 10 years or more). From what I've gathered, there's stability/reliability benefits to going with a Xeon based machine and ECC ram, so I started there. Then thinking about scaling up to 3 or 4 projectors and reading other threads in the forum, selected a Radeon Pro WX7100. Then tried to build a box around that. Here's what I have for my first parts list. I just caught in another thread that the SSD's I pulled may be under-spec on the read speed. Let me know what you think. I'd like to end up with a machine that is stable and fast, with room to grow forward but not overkill now for what will generally be driving 2 projectors a few times a year, and then in the downtime I'd use it as my primary editing machine for AE/Premiere, and CAD work.
