wanting to build a new but I'm kinda stuck.. so looking for ideas
programs used: premiere, after effects, edius (and to a small degree photoshop and 3dmax)
- proc: q9300 (or q9550 haven't decided)
- ram: what would work better 1066 CL5 or 800 CL4 ? going for 4gb, but 2gb initial and then upgrade in couple of months is doable as well...
- video: hoping for some ideas what would be the least expensive card for this ? (do i need 512mb of vram ?)
- mobo: no idea, but in the value segment
- hdd: now this is the tricky part... any advice would be nice
- how great is the importance of separate os/app hdds ?
- i was thinking of raid-ing one drive (either with onboard controller, or with a 'value' one) would this affect cpu usage too much ?
- currently i'm thinking 2hdd setup: samsung 250 f1 series for os and app and samsung 750 f1 for capture
system will not be used 24/7 and kinda short on cash, so small sacrifices can be made here and there
any feedback would be appreciated
