I’d like to build a new system to be used for video editing (DVD Shrink, DVD Decryter, Scanalyzer, TMPGenc), cable TV capture (in the US), and DVD playback. The system will be placed in a slightly confined space. I will play no games nor will I overclock. Stability is prefered over peerformance.
I’m planning on getting a E6700, but don’t know what motherboard, DVD writter (I like my present plextor), power supply etc. to get.
Having a cool and quiet system is important to me, as is speed in CPU intensive tasks.
Questions that occur to me include:
- Do higher rated power supplies consume more power for a given power draw?
- Will more memory automatically draw more power?
- Will multiple hard drivers draw more power and produce more noise? If so what benifit do they provid (or haw large is the benifit of seperating the IO?
- What problems will I run into getting a SATA DVD drive with a modern motherboard?
This is more first post, so I’m sorry if I’m asking too much.
