I'll give you some background first. I'm an actor that has finally got fed up of waiting for other people to do production and editing so I'm going to have a bash myself.
It will be HDV editing.
The computer will be used for other stuff aswell: admin, internet, a bit of gaming.
My budget is approx £700-£800.
After a bit of reading these things seem to be important.
Quad core 64 bit processor. Which one?
64bit windows vista home premium.
If I get ms works, will I be able to use ms word, coz office pro is quite expensive.
Is windows movie maker good enough to start with?
2 x 250 gb hard drives.
2 gb ram.
firewire port? Do these come as part of or with something else?
TV in and out?
I would like to be able to watch and record digital TV through it.
19" flat monitor.
Keyboard and mouse.
There are probably plenty of blanks here. Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
I'm in Manchester so have emailed Aria with this type of spec for a quote. If anybody knows of any good PC builders let me know.
