I've been looking to upgrade my PC for the company for a while now. We need something that will be able to handle easily and quickly HD editing on Premier, After Effects (and the rest of master suite CS5.5) as well as projection of HD and possibly 3D and Stereoscopic film. I've put together what I think we need, some of which I can strip from our old machines. Not going for mac regardless of the arguments for them, love them but can build better for cheaper and for the sake of graphical pleasantness and slightly more intuitive control, there not worth the price. Here's everything so far
Nova Tech Prowler Midi case V2 - £29.99
AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8120 3.1Ghz (will overclock this) - £142.98
AS Rock 970 Extreme3 AMD 870 (motherboard) - £66.98
Gigabyte GeForce GT 440 OC 1024MB GDDR3 - £54.98
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 32MB Cache SATA 6Cb/s 59000rpn - £78.98
2x Corsair Vengeance 4GB - 16000Mhz DDR3 - £43.96
Liteon Blu-Ray SATA drice - £47.99
USB Card Reader- £6.98
already owned is:
DVD RW drive
multiple HDD all 250GB or bigger (will use one of OS and Core programs)
In total everything comes to £472.84.
Want to keep this below £500 and this was just line price from a respectable UK computing company, does anyone know of anywhere to get any of this cheaper? (obvious question really) oddly enough scan is quite pricey on all this I've found. Also obviously, is this a good enough rig? Pretty confident I've got the CPU right, know I can always stuff more RAM in there but that's a budget issues, my only concern is, they good enough graphics? Wondering if really I should be Spending more?
