Im about to purchase a new pc system for editing dv and hdv and have a pc specialist who will build it for me, he has asked me to provide him the specs of which i want for my new system so i've come here in hope for some answers. Basically im looking for anyone who can help me generate a list starting from mobo, raid array, amd or intel right down to power supply and cooling so that i have a realistic and effective pc. i will be using vegas 7/after effects and adobe photoshop to do my editing and composition. Im not interested however in having the best of the best just for names sake as i know 6 months down the line it will become standard so what im after is the best route to get a fast system going for around £1000. Also this is a little off topic, but for the time being would you recomend montioring/editing hdv footage on a tft lcd monitor (or standard tv) until finances allow for a hd monitor? Thanks in advanced people.
