I have booked a "holiday of a life time" and will be buying a digital camcorder to capture it. But before that I wanted to know how much - or what - to spec up my home build PC.
256Mb DDR RAM
GeForce2 *onboard* graphics and sound
I do not have firewire so that ones definately on my list to buy.
Second on my list is a quieter CPU Fan, and possibly replace my noisy (and slightly dodgy) generic power supply unit - its all a bit loud.
An extra 256mb RAM would presumably be high on the list, and not too expensive.
Thats when I loose the priority - and I cant afford everything! My options would seem to be Windows XP Home, a graphics card, or a better firewire card rather than the cheapest I can find (which is what I would go with, left to my own devices!)
What do you think? - Bearing in mind that I dont plan on spending the rest of my life editing video - just the occasional holiday! :P
