+ start with 2gb of ram (2x1gb sticks)
+ core2duo are the fastest processors available now
+ get 2 hard drives and dedicate one for video use
also, what's a 'tv out' card? most all new video cards have hdtv (component) output as well as s-video. if that's what your tv out card does, dump it and use the video card's functionality instead.
Lets start with a few things about what i want to do with this PC:
-I dont play PC games (unless they make a Starcraft 2)
-What the primary use for this rig will be video editing
-I plan to get a good video camera (HD maybe?)
-I have a good DVD burner
-I want to be able to edit the videos quickly and with good quality
What should i look for?
What i think:
-Dual core processor
-Lots of memory
-Big Hard Drive
-Dual core GPU ???
-Graphics card thats supports the 'HD' out
-Good mother board
What i have that i can reuse:
-Soundblaster Audigy 2ZS
-TV out card
Thanks in advance for the info
