This is my CPU processor. Since I tend to run many operations at once with my computer, I typically choose the higher core count (this is hex-core)
These are the motherboards that I use within my computer. Another alternative that I like is ASUS X99-E LGA2011-v3 SafeSlot ATX Motherboard
This is the power supply that I use to power my computer.
This is the CPU cooler that I use. You need to cool down your processor chip. This one does it using water!
Ram is what allows you to run multiple memory extensive programs at once. I use a lot of it.
I have a few of these cases for my computers to install the equipment in. It is extremely roomy.
Video & Graphics
This is my primary graphics card. It has 6 monitor output in the back. Fantastic card with low energy use. You can daisychain multiple cards together for even more displays such as 12, 18, 24, or even more monitors!
This is my backup video card that has 4 monitor ports in the back. Great card if you are looking for multiple monitor support and speed up your workflow through multiple monitors.
I have a few Logitech C920 cameras. I usually use these as B cameras when I do webinars. They perform quite well – even better than the C930’s in my opinion.
Capture card for capturing my Panasonic GH4 video stream directly into the computer. Super easy to setup.
The last time I was shopping for monitors I purchased a handful of these monitors. The resolution is clear, they mount onto a stand, have multiple outputs, and the bezel edge is super tiny!
For storing video files you need a ton of hard drive space. These are easier than dealing with a NAS. I have 3 of these currently loaded with 32TB (8GB x 4) each.
These are the current drives that I use to run the operating system. SSD’s are much faster than traditional hard drives. The next stage to upgrade would be Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SATA III or the Intel 400GB 750 Series SSD PCIE MLC card
Peripherals & Misc
One of the keyboards that I use. It is handy for the macro-keys on the side which allows you to execute automated actions and speeds up your workflow.
This is a fairly nice wireless mouse for the money. Another good one that I have is the Logitech MX Revolution Wireless Mouse – but it is a bit more expensive.
If you are running multiple monitors, a stand like this is helpful to attaching and arranging all those displays.
My headset for general use. Fantastic comfort, sound quality, and mic. They also have the red version: HyperX II Headset (Red) and in White: HyperX II Headset (White)
Handy USB hub to plug various devices that can sit on your desk so you don’t have to reach around behind your computer.
