Hi all, the comp build is pretty much finished but I'm having trouble interpreting which PCI-E slot the black magic video card and the Radeon Graphics card are meant to be in. Roger from Moviestuff instructions were as follows:
HD Capture Card: BlackMagic Intensity Pro should be in the number 1 PCI-E slot.
Graphics Card: Radeon HD6870 1GB GDDR5 - Dual Port (PCI-E) Should be in the number 2 PCI-E slot.
Now my mobo manual only specifies that the primary PCI-E x16 slot is the upper slot (the blue empty one) and the lower x16 is the secondary slot (the one the graphics card is currently plugged into). As you can see in the picture the Black Magic card is plugged in the highest PCI-E x1 slot. So does Roger physically mean the graphics card should be in the number 2 PCI-E slot which would be the empty slot (primary) directly beneath the Black Magic card or is it correct as it is? To confuse matters even more the Black Magic card can be plugged into PCI-E x16 slots as well. So he could even mean that the Black Magic card needs to be plugged into the primary PCI-E x16 slot. Anyone got any ideas what he means? All I have to do is get the slots right and then I can install the software.
Just a quick note. The Flog section (Film Log) of the website is now a designated space where customers can check to see if their films have been developed and dispatched. I felt it would be easier for you guys and girls to keep up to date with your films this way. It saves you scrambling through all the posts in the Blog section of the website if you don't use facebook or twitter.
All the best
