Hello there,

I am building a system for capturing 1080p video ( ~100Mbps ) with a Decklink duo PCI card (https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/decklink/techspecs/W-DLK-31 ) and using VMix software.
I have built the below system according to the reference system found on VMix website
( https://www.vmix.com/products/vmix-reference-systems.aspx#ruby ).

Specs so far:

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG H7 49 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z390-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
Storage: Samsung 860 Evo 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital Red 2 TB 3.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB DUAL OC Video Card
Power Supply: SeaSonic EVO Edition 620 W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply


Im gonna add another ssd in the future for my recordings. The HDD is only for backup purposes.

  • Is the system above powerful enough to handle this kind of workload?
  • Would you recommend any changes?
  • Does this motherboard have the pci interface required by the DeckLink card?
  • Should i get another HDD or is this good enough? ( I am looking for durability )
Sorry for the questions but i need this system to work flawlessly since its gonna be my main tool for my job.

Thanks in advance!
 
That system is way above the specs needed. I have an i3-6100 + RX 460 4GB + Elgato HD60 Pro that is more than enough for 1080p recording.

I have a question though, will you be doing other things on this system while recording or is it dedicated to recording only? It should be good enough for recording + other things, I'm just wondering.

Hello and thanks for the reply!

We will be capturing multiple 1080p cameras simultaneously, adding some graphics and maybe a green screen and all that will be live streamed to our website from one machine.

Thanks!

I also run 4x 1080p security cameras on a Pentium G4560 w/ integrated graphics on software (Blue Iris) that takes advantage of Intel's Quick Sync technology in their graphics. Runs like a charm. With multiple 1080p cameras, I'm sure it will depend a lot on the efficiency of the software being used.
