    Multimedia build

    My church is looking to enhance their multimedia PCs output and has put me in charge of upgrading the computer and re-purposing the old PC for other uses behind our Sound/Multimedia Desk.

    Here's what I have chosen so far:


    I need some help with the Graphics card though.

    I need to run a main display (PC Monitor) and Two projectors (One for the Audience and the other for the Musicians).
    I have all the software needed to run it but GFX choice is tuff here as I am not a fan of AMD cards but know they are extremely capable of running great Multi-display setups.

    The monitors is Full HD and the projectors are capable of displaying some HD aspect ratios.

    So any AMD that could help me out would be great, They also want it to last for a good 4+ years before upgrading. (I know that's a stretch but I have constraints to work with)

    I would say a titan.

    It works a lot better than 780 Tis in workstation/multimedia builds.

    But youcould try Crossfired or a Single Sapphire 290X toxic.

    Either one of those are great.

    Bump.

    Pricey stuff I see(not couting that they're Au prices).
    Why Dominators(while you could get equally good RAM for 100 AUD less)?
    What are you going to cool the 4770K with?
    etc.

    2 DVI->HDMIs + a normal HDMI should be enough, right?

    I'll probably change it up soon so it's cheaper for them and get equally good but cheaper RAM.
    That is a nice card there!

    For Multimedia purposes of course! Here the best example of my church and why we need it:


    We need it so we can fill up those screens with promotional content and news and events that we might be holding. There is also a project and a monitor behind me in this photo, another monitor to left of me hanging on the outside of the desk and 3 more screen on the outside of the left walls.

    The media encoding software that we use would benefit from it being faster as we need to chose different formats for our presentation software, TVs and monitors. We also use a combination of Sony Vegas and After Effects/Premier and use Adobe Audition to record our sermons and also Photoshop to create our promotional stills.
