Hi guys,please help out,
im going to build my Resolve 9 System for work with BMD camera 2.5k CinemaDNG,
before i buy, need some clarification
The rig is

CPU - i7 3930k (will Oc'd 4.6ghz to 5Ghz)
MOBO - Asus x79 rampage IV extreme
RAM - 32GB 2133mhz
GUI - PCIe 2.0 x16 - ATI 6850 (which i already have)
GPU1- PCIe 3.0 x8 - GTX 680 with pcie3.0 hack
GPU2- PCIe 3.0 x8 - GTX 680 with pcie3.0 hack
Decklink-PCIe 2.0 x8

Does the above configuration work well?
what u guys think about the Pcie config (x16,x8,x8,x8) actually (x16,x16,x16,x8) is it right?
or Can i get GTX 690 to replace 2 680s and the pcie config (x16,x16,x8)
Which decklink card good for Dreamcolor Monitor (Pcie vs usb3.0)

I have a dreamcolor, though I don't know a ton about it yet.

AFAIK Blackmagic gear won't output a RGB signal, only YUV. According to this post: http://provideocoalition.com/index.php/atepper/story/blackmagic_we8217re_ready_to_remove_the_band-aid/ you need an extra device when working with blackmagic gear and a dreamcolor monitor, if you want the dreamcolor engine enabled, which you probably do. That is at this time. Perhaps Blackmagic will update their firmware sometime to support RGB. Or, even more unlikely, allow Resolve to work with non-blackmagic gear.

please refer to the Resolve Windows Config guide on the bmd website. It will answer all of your questions. Customer Support for Resolve and Decklink is excellent.

I don't know a lot about motherboards but I would think that you'd want to look for one that is Thunderbolt-compatible as well as USB3...
