  1. Hello, I need to build a powerful Graphics-Workstation (Windows7-64 prof.) for Video editing. WS shall be equipped with one professional graphics controller (PCIe 16x) and 2x LSI MegaRAID-9270-8i controllers (both at PCIe 8x) reuslting in two RAID5-Arrays consisting of 8 drives each. The workload is as follows: Large files 2-6GB+ (sometimes several) are read from any of the 2 LSI MeagRAIDs while (often at the same time) Video-sequences are cut, pasted, rendered etc.. No other PCIe slots will be used. I find it hard to find a suitable motherboard that supports PCIe Version 3 without bandwidth limitation on any of the PCIe-lanes or slots. Which Motherboard(s) would conform to (or best meet) the setup described? Chipset Z87 supports PCIe Ver 3, but most boards I've seen multiplex the lanes with a PEX8747 chip. AFAIK Chipset X79 supports PCIe Ver 2. However, I would think the primary bottleneck might be the disk-write-speed (despite an 8-drive RAID5-array). Therefore a MoBo with PCIe Ver 2 would probably do the job as well. But which one? Any other thoughts or suggestions? Your advice is highly appreciated. Thanks
