    I have just read about having 3 hard drives. One for boot, one for edit and one for archive. SATA II preferred.
    Could anyone please comment on this.

    Is it quiet? Are you using a quiet case? My next pc is going to be built to be silent too.

    Yes the PC is very quiet. During normal use, you cannot hear it. It is only when I am actually outputting video that all 4 processor cores come into play. The cooling fan spins up a little, but the noise level is still very low. I don't use an insulated case as the last time I did, found it didn't really make much difference.

    I think the secret to a successful quiet PC is to use quality cooling products. It doesn't have to be expensive either. For example, the Arctic Cooling CPU cooler was £14.

    From a IT perspective
    Dual core if available Better would be TWIN dual cores or TWIN Singles

    my System

    2x Opterons 175 @ 2 ghz each (benchmarks at PR6800) and they are only single cores
    1GB ECC DDR400 RAM
    2x WD 200gb 7200 RPM on a HIGHPOINT Raid Controller Benchmarks 100-125 MBps transfer speed
    1 External 500GB storage drive (Esata cable on order )

    mother board ASUS K8N-DL
    Rubbish VGA card needs replacing want either matrox or GREEN VALLEY

    usually pc trimmings 500" PSU
    19" IIYAMA series PRO monitor




    any way thats a little of my spec

    Dream machine

    2 x quad core opterons on a dual processor board (Yes that is an 8 Core SYSTEM )
    and 8 GB ram

    and to think that the CPU used in terminator was listed as a 32 core processor we aren't that far away

    Hard drive
    PCI-X not PCI EXPRESS raid controller with 64 Bit access running 4 7200 RPM raid 0 and a 5th for parity

    unless you could get a 4 lane pci express card may be comparable on speed

    graphics any dedicated high def encoder cosing upwards of £600 probably conopus but i haven't researching this area yet

    if anyone had this spec and isnt planning world domination with it i would love to hear from them
