I am looking within the next few weeks depending on what they announce at CES this week on building a new PC. Rumors are AMD will announce a Ryzen 9 7950X3D. Also Intel will announce a Core i9-13900KS, although leaked benchmarks show only a 10% improvement in certain benchmarks from a 13900K.
I am looking at the Following:
CPU-Intel 13900K No OC. Thermaltake AIO 360 mm, Corsair HX1000i PS. Will keep my Ryzen Vll.
MB - Asus ProArt Creator Z690 ( Cannot Find Z790 anywhere ) Or Asus Prime Z 790. I know there is not much of a performance difference between Z690 and Z790. But you can get faster ram with the Z790.
Memory - If I go with the Pro Art, G.Skill Ripjaws S5 64 GB ( 2X32 ) DDR 5 5600. Or If I go with the Prime Board the $100.00 or so I save can go for faster 32 gb ram. The Prime board will run ram up to 7000mhz. I was looking at 6000mhz or 6400mhz. Would the faster ram at 32gb be better than 64gb of slower ram in Vegas?
I am leaning towards Intel because of the Onboard graphics. I have not run a Intel PC for quite a while.
My question is with Intels built in graphics to run it in Vegas do I have to enable it in the BIOS? I know I have to do that, but will it then have a conflict with the Ryzen Vll? To get the CPU graphics video signal to the monitor do I have to have a HDMI going from the MB to the monitor? And also have a HDMI from my Ryzen Vll to the monitor? Or will Vegas in file IO have both the Intel and Ryzen hardware decoder option to pick from?
I have to be honest I just make movies in Vegas for my family, but I like building a new PC every 3 to 4 years, its fun for me. Then my old parts I sell on Ebay to help offset the cost of the new PC.
Thanks for any suggestions.
