    Default Rescaling a DAW for NLE with Vegas Pro 8, CS3 apps

    I have a home built computer for digital audio recording that I want to utilize as an NLE. I'll be swapping each tweaked installation of XP Pro 32bit using removable drives instead of multi-booting. The specs are as follows:

    • MoBo - MSI K9A2 PLATINUM 790FX AM2+
    • CPU - AMD|PHENOM 9750 2.4G AM2 65N
    • Memory - M2Gx2|GSK F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK
    • OS Drives - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200KSRTL 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s (3 drives, each installed in a Kingwin KF-91-BK removable rack with independent XP Pro installs tweaked specifically for audio, video editing, or photo editing)
    • Storage Drives - Seagate HD 500G|ST 7K 16M SATA2 ST3500630AS (three drives: one for audio recordings, one for photos, another for audio samples, and finally, a 750G Seagate drive for video which will prabably end up in a removable rack. Any drive not utilized during a given task is used for "scratch drive"/temp files and/or virtual memory)
    • Graphics card - VGA ATI 100-505182 FireGL V3350
    • Monitors - ACER|LCD 19" 5MS DVI X193W+BD (a pair for dual monitoring the timeline)
    • DVDwr - ASUS|DRW-2014L1T LS SAT
    • DVD rom - SONY NEC|DDU1615/B2s BK

    I feel like the only upgrade needed would be a second FireGL V3350 and a third LCD monitor (Narrowed down to the Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 or the LGW2053TQ-PF Black 20" 2ms GTG 16:9 Widescreen LCD Monitor w/ HDCP Support 300 cd/m2 50000:1,either sells for the same price at Newegg) for viewing full-screen playback of the timeline. I can't afford even a prosumer monitor right now so I have to go wth a consumer monitor and double check everything on a consumer SDTV (CRT) through my camcorder's firewire port. I'll be using Sony Vegas Pro 8 and Adobe CS3 apps for editing. Any suggestions?

    iu don't think you need a seccond graphics card to be honest.
    i would have 2 750gb hard drive in raid 0 or 4 in raid 0+1

    Seonded - gfx card is irrelevant - mine is the cheapest dx9 card I could find.

    Also - seperate boots for video editing? - nope - not needed.

    All you need to edit video is a fast pc - 4 cores best except for DV when one will do fine - and a few drives with no media on sys drive.
