Hi, if you're looking for a top of the range hardcore gaming PC then you're going to want:

At least 4GB of RAM (preferably 6 or 8GB though.)
A super fast CPU (such as the intel I5s and I7s or another good quad core processor)
A state of the art graphics card (like any of the ones in the article at 15 best graphics cards in the world today | News | TechRadar UK)
An appropriate HDD or SSD (depending on if you want speed or storage).
And to handle this an appropriate PSU, motherboard, sound card etc.

A machine like this will set you back A LOT of money plus you have to buy the OS separately and build it yourself but it will do pretty much anything you'll want it to and some more to boot.

If you have any further questions please ask.

More interested to convert EDIT VIDEO AND IN HD.
Can you tell Accurate example:
CPU:? GHz
RAM:? MHz
Graphic Card:?
And other equipment needed to be.

I want to have the speed and quality.

THANKS FOR INFO.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
 
 

CPU: at least a 2.66Ghz Quad Core
RAM: 6-8 GB DDR3 (you cant go wrong as long as its DDR3)
Graphics Card: I'd recommend a ATI Radeon HD5850 (im getting one myself)
Hard Drive: 3.5" 500GB+ 7200rpm. 64mb cache.

Other Equipment:
Good mid-tower case
4 decent case-fans
1100 Watt PSU (to allow further upgrades in the future)
-Motherboard- i cant recommend one. sorry..


thats how i would start out.. you gotta do a little homework yourself though, none of our posts will get you the right pc, you have to find a build that suits YOU.

Here's my explanation.

CPU: this isn't necessarily measured in Ghz but also in cores. A 2.66Ghz Single Core Processor is a bit week and really wouldn't be able to do any HD Video Editing whereas a 2.66Ghz quad or hexa core processor would handle it with ease. Personally I'd go for a 3.xGhx Intel I7 Processor but a 2.8 would probably suffice, or any other intel or AMD quad/hexa/octo core processor near the 3Ghz mark.

RAM: As much as possible, preferably 8, 12 or 16GB.

GPU: any of the top 7 or 8 of the ones in the news article at 15 best graphics cards in the world today | News | TechRadar UK.

Storage: An SSD as big as your budget will allow.

I hope this is specific enough and for any other components you may need please refer to Jihaad's post.

For video encoding:

A good Quad Core CPU will be a HUGE benefit here.
4-8GB RAM
If budget will allow, a core i5/7 with triple channel (6GB) would be ideal. HD encoding does see benefits from the higher bandwidth, unlike many apps and common tasks.

You also need a good encoding app that can use all the threads available effeciently. I would suggest the x264 encoder, with MeGUI as the UI.
Intel will offer the best performance at higher price than AMD. But if you plan on lots of encoding, it may be worth the investment as youll reap the benefits in this scenario.

If your primary goal is video encoding, the GPU will not play a large role.

So you want to concentrate on CPU & RAM first and formost for these tasks. A good GPU is a good idea, but it deosnt need to be the best.
If gaming this is entirely different.


Also, if dealing with Bluray content you may wish to have a SSD/Mechanical combo.

A SSD for the OS drive and all apps, and a large spinning drive for DATA storage. Keep in mind, a BD is going to be 35-40GB easily in its RAW form. Youll still need to extarct streams/encode etc so youll want at least 150GB free working space for this.

For video encoding. i dont think I would be writing to a SSD. If you encode alot, there will be a lot of writes/erases cycle. And large ones at that.

Avery good informative post Wishmaster, thank you

Here's an example of somewhat high spec, and very fast, suitable for your needs:

Mainboard: Any X58 with 6 memory slots, and all solid caps. Gigabyte, Asus, MSI has lots too choose from.
CPU: Intel Core i7 975
Memory: 6x 2GB (any ram from a good manufacturer will do, I'd go with cheaper ram than "gaming grade").
GFX card(s(: Go with more display output, for now the ideal choice will be RadeonHD 5870, use two of them, I'll explain more later on.
Audio I/O: If your production needs a DAW setup, go with "Creamware" audio interfaces, it's one of the "best", comparable to ProTools but cheaper.
Monitors: 4x 24" 1920x1200 S-IPS/S-PVA display, and one Professional grade LCD display for proofing. Total of 5 displays (thus you need 2x5870).
Power supply: anything that's powerful enough for your rig is good (and must cost more than $100 just to be safe), preferably redundant.
Internal Storage: use Intel X25-M 160GB for OS. Just use one SSD, it's enough.
Case: whatever you like, I'd go with Thermaltake Level 10, since I got one laying around...
External Storage: IBM DS-3300 stuffed with 2TB disks, totaling 24TB of usable space. External storage is the most effective way, internal storage can only store so much...
Keyboard/mouse: whatever you like, I personally prefer Microsoft Ergonomic 4000 keyboard, as for mouse, anything that's "gaming grade" is good enough, you'll need the extra sensitivity/speed exploring that huge desktop space.
Other input devices: Control Surfaces for Video/Audio production, toy vs serious, your choice. There are several others that will work with specific apps, like special controller for video color correction application. Browse around....
UPS/AC input conditioner: APC Symmetra series is very good, and cost effective.
Speakers/Studio Monitors: I prefer Tannoy's Studio monitor.

That's for mid to mid-high audio video production system.

Ps. if you're asking for "toy" class audio/video workstation, go with whatever you can find on the net, it will be able to handle your workload, though slowly... Watch out for the audio/video proofing/reproduction too, any gaming display (with 2ms response or less = TN panel, junk) is junk, don't use it since you can't get a reliable "proof" off it (shift head position = shifted color)
