Hello Martin, and hello to the whole community.

I open another post to ask for confirmation of my new PC configuration.
The need is to acquire two analog sources, and analog out. With three "Blackmagic Intensity Pro" I can do this? With these three cards in the future I might work in HDMI? sources can be mixed in and out?

For example: two HDMI inputs, recording on Hard Disk vMix, analog composite output to a screen.

And to do this, this PC work?

- ALI LC-POWER 500W
- MoBo Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3
- CPU i5-2300 boxed
- RAM DDR3 Corsair xms3 8Gb (2x4 in Dual Channel mode)
- Nvidia GTX550 1Gb
- HDD Samsung SpinPoint F3 500Gb (for S.O. e software only)
- 2 x HDD Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB in RAID 0 (for video recording)
- 3 x BlackMagic Intensity PRO

All mounted in a rack-mount industrial chassis

The mobo has two firewire ports be used simultaneously (tested).

One other question ... IF I WOULD INCREASE THE INPUTS? I have to find a Mobo with multiple ports PCI-Ex and mount other BMI?

Thanks to you and all those who wish to respond.

Yes, you can use as many Intensity Pro cards as you like.

I recommend using the second output of the graphics card for the output to the screen as there will be a delay if you use the Intensity Pro output.
(This is an Intensity Pro limitation as the output is designed for recording)

There are many motherboards out there with 6x PCI-Ex slots such as:

I wanted to know if I can use the analog output of the Blackmagic to send the composite signal to an uplink. is difficult for an uplink accepts a DVI signal. The exit delay is not important.

Thanks for the tip on the motherboard;)
The rest of the configuration is ok? Or do I need an i7?
