My system is as follows.Primary drive Samsung 512 Gb M.2,  Secondary drive WD Black 1Tb,  CPU Intel i7 6850k, Board ASUS Rampage v10, GPU Nvidia GTX 1080, Memory 128Gb Kingston Predator DDR4, Corsair 1000 PSU  This is my general use machine and the question is, I have a mountain of Documentaries downloaded from youtube onto an older machine that I would like to burn to Bluray /DVD  I would like a machine specifically for this task as I dont want to use my main machine for that [ I could but I don't want to, thats just the way I think ]  What would be a good fast system for that type of work ?  The main machine can [ as a test ] encode and burn a 63minute doc in under 6 mins [ in fact closer to 5 mins ] 


I would like my second system to have the power needed to handle the task. Would any of the Xeon CPU's be a good starting point with maybe 64 Gb DDR 4? and a Quadro M2000 GPU. This is just me thinking aloud and would welcome any suggestions. One thing is a must and that is,, I want enough power to do the job and not be maxed out, better a little over powered than under powered. the Primary drive would be a 256 Samsung M.2 and a WD Black for storage ect.

any suggestions welcome

The system...is not the determinant of how long any burn takes.  The burner is the key item to be considered and having a faster system is not going to impact the burn process.


How Long?
