Hello,

We want to build a new 2(all)-in-1 PC which we can use for FullHD live streaming+recording with vMix and if we don’t have live streams we can use it for video editing (multicam editing-rendering as well).

We aren’t looking into absolute high-end range, but still we want a decent machine which can last for several years.
I have been Intel guy, but at the moment I have been looking AMD processors considering the prices and availability.

Processor: AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2920X
Motherboard: Gigabyte X399 DESIGNARE EX
RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz CL16
SSD1 (system and programs): Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2
SSD2 (recording and raw media): Samsung 970 EVO 1TB M.2
SSD3 (cache): Samsung 860 EVO 500GB
Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 G1 Gaming 6GB
PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G3 650W
Capture card: DeckLink Quad 2 or DeckLink 8K Pro or DeckLink 4K Extreme 12G
Case: Any suggestions? It’s going to travel to different places so we are probably building a transport rack for it / around it.
Software: Windows 10, vMix 4K, video editing with Premiere CS6 (probably switching to DaVinci Resolve as it probably will handle 8/12-core processor more efficiently than Premiere).

Price is around 2500€ ($2900) w/o software and capture card and we would like to stay around this price range.


If you have any thoughts, suggestions … please share.

Thank you.

Hi there Flops,

Some experiences with Threadripper so far:

- Get the fastest memory you can get. Running it at native OC speed gives you a huge performance boost.
- Get a good cooler, preferrably AIO (get one with 5 year full part warranty) so you can run it at a light OC. The TR runs really stable at higher clocks. This also allows you to not worry running the CPU at 100% at all.

Looking at your list:
Make sure to double check which PCI slot gets blocked by your second M.2 drive.
You should be able to get a 3600mhz memory motherboard and memory for close to the same price.

In terms of case, Im using all servercases (4HE) for all my builds. This does mean that the EVO 12cm CPU coolers are too tall, as will most 12cm coolers be, hence I went AIO.

You would be better off to follow the vMix recommendations and base your build around an Intel CPU and either a 1070 or 1080 GPU

Thanks.

About GPU.
We aren't going do to any replays.
GTX1080 costs about twice as much as GTX1060.
vMix HD+replay reference system has GTX1060.

If we buy GTX1080 do we really benefit from it a lot? (in comparison with GTX1060)

It really depends on how much else you want to do on the computer. If you're gonna do a lot of video editing, the extra rendering performance can save you a lot of time. Especially if you're waiting on renders in your workflow (as opposed to queueing them in downtime). I found the beefier GPU especially helpful in situations where theres a lot going on in terms of capture, rendering and recording at the same time (when both Hvec slots are taken by rendering)

Also consider the Quadro lineup. P2000 and above doesn't have a limit on concurrent hardware encoders. In comparison, the Geforce parts only do two: One recording and one stream for example.
