Need A Desktop to Edit HD Home Movies...

by vesonexavier / April 4, 2008 5:57 AM PDT

Hi everybody,

I'm looking a desktop without the monitor, because I already have a HDTV I'm going to use for the monitor, that can handle edting HD footage in Sony Vegas 8 smoothly. It doesn't have to be Sony Vegas 8 it could be final cut express, it doesn't matter to me what type of operating system the computer has, I just need some direction. I've never used an apple before but I really really want to but I don't seem to have too many options. I could get the mac mini but I don't think it'll handle HD editing too well, I could get an Imac but the screen is unnecessary or I could get a Mac Pro which would be overkill to me...I'm kind of stuck and need some help. THanks for your advice.
