    HI can I get some help with a new PC build for Avid MC

    Hi, so I keep having constant crashes, usually when I first turn on my pc.  I have been battling this for over a year and simply have had enough.  I have been unable to find a solution.  My pc will just crash and restart.  I have checked the error logs and its always the same power error.  I changed out the psu....I even changed my mobo and cpu last year.....nothing solves this issue and I can not find anyone or anything online that solves the issue.

    So I am just going to start from scratch here. I am going to use windows 10 64 bit...I have been using windows 7 64 bit.  I have never had a single issue with Avid, Photoshop, after effects etc.  Is this smart to build with 10?  Seems like it is time to do this.  I use 10 on my normal pc in my house and have zero issues so I am assuming Avid is cool with 10 by this point.

    So I am looking for reccomendations for MOBO, CPU, GPU, Hard Drives, PSU, Ram and Case.  Not sure if I am going to use any of my existing parts except maybe my drives.  I currently use two Raid 0 2 tb, 1tb boot drive sata 3 and have a blu ray drive.   

    I use to use videoguys as a baseline for what to build and they seem to have gotten out of the buisness of reccomending builds.  I am a freelancer and have worked as an assistant editor for a tv show for the last 9 years and now that has essentially come to an end because of a lack of sponsors.  So I need to be able to do edit anything thrown my way going forward.  Not raw 8k files or anything extreme like that however.

    So I am open to any ideas others have and am interested in your builds.  It seems AMD Ryzen, a 1060 and 32 gb ram seems to be a constant I keep reading about in regards to this.

    thanks in advance to anyone who responds I look forward to your recommendations.

     

    Todd

    If you do a search here on the forums, you'll find other similar threads. Just a couiple of things to bear in mind. Avid only tests on Intel based CPUs, and NVidia based cards. If you're looking for a system guarenteed to work, there's a list of approved systems (all quite expensive but these are the systems that get tested).

    Start with this thread here: http://community.avid.com/forums/p/180415/840558.aspx#840558

    DIY quad core I7-4790K, 32Gb, NVidia GTX 970 4GB, Win 10 Pro, MC(generally the latest or the one just before), MC 7.x [view my complete system specs]

    Thank you for the link.  I have never built a computer with amd so I am glad to see its not an option really.
