So, afer getting my new system sorted, I'll be well on my way to getting involved in video editing again.
Editing on a 1.7GHz P4 was making me want to chew my own head off.
Initially, I shall be buying:
Intel Core 2 Duo 6300 (plus a motherboard that I haven't yet decided on)
1GB DDR2 RAM (I plan to upgrade the RAM at a later date)
320GB 16MB cache SATA300 Hard Drive
PCI-E 7300 or 7600 video card (256 or 512MB, haven't decided yet)
Plus a new case and PSU of some kind.
I'll be using some bits out of my old PC, namely the DVDRW drive and one of the IDE hard drives (160GB 8MB cache)
I'm on a tight budget, so none of the specs can change at the moment.
Anyway, enough waffle - What I do need to know though is, with regard to video editing and using seperate drives, would I get better performance using the SATA300 as a boot drive and the IDE as a video drive or vice versa?
