    Default 500 rig works well with CS5 Premiere & Full HD XDCAM EX footage from Sony EX1 & EX3

    Well 16 over After a lot of trawling and spec reading I came up with a nice video editing rig the allows full use of the new mercury engine in CS5/CS5.5 ie no rendering

    I had a spare case as all ATX case are basically the same, I had a DVD burner I think most folk have one of these and I assume you have a monitor. I did buy a monitor listed below I got an ex-display model from in a bestbuy.com store and it's a beauty. Most of it was from scan.co.uk and the graphics card was from ebuyer.com although overclockers.co.uk sell them too.

    Hope this helps someone:

    90 day trial version of windows 7 enterprise 64bit - you can re-activate legitimately 3 times I believe (google) which gives you about a year two save up 50 for a home premium which should have come down a bit by then
