Newish editor looking for a new pc
Hi my name is Bryn,
I've been editing on my home computer for about a year now using programs such as Pinnacle Studio DV, Video Wave 5 and AlamDV2. After starting college in September (04). When I started I was shown new programs such as Adobe Premiere, After Effects, photoshop and audition.
Anyway the computer I have at the moment is about 5 years old and is very slow and has very little mempry (the last time I tried to use it for editing I had a film about 2 minutes long and the computer was struggling to do anything). I've recently been looking to buy a new computer specificaly for editing, animation, photo editing and gaming. The only problem is is that I don't know much at all about the tech side of computers and am left to rely on what other people tell me. One friend told me to look at Alienware computers because they're great for both editing,animation etc and gaming but I've read in many forums that they are very pricey for what they are. My budget is about £1900, I want to get the best computer I possibly can (just cpu, no extras such as moniters etc) but really need help. I will also be running programmes such as Alias Maya, Poser, animation master and Stop mo pro. Please help me, thanks in advance to anyone that does.
P.S.I have a configuration and a price for an Alienware Aurora 5550 that a friend made for me if anybody would like to see that at all if would help I'd be more than happy to post it on here or to email it to you.
Can\'t do it? Do it anyway!
