proffesional editing system ?
Anybody any experience with DELL desktop pcís for video editing? I just invested in a new one scince I had to drop my old pc from the 5th floor to get some speed from it. See below for system specs. I know the video card is a bit over the top for video editing but since I enjoy a good video game now and then I decided to invest extra so Iím settled for a few years at least. An external firewire capture disk is on the list and Iím ready to take off. I also have a dualboot system were win2000 is dedicated to video editing only. Now my pc wasnít exactly cheap, eventhough DELL is cheaper then the local pc builder, but if I compare it to some proffesional video edting systems the price is sometimes 8 times higher! Are they so much better to justify the price difference? I paid 1300 euro while on creativevideo.co.uk I saw a system at over 11000 euro. (Over 7000 pound) I guess the last one is much faster but does it do more? Is it more stable then an ordinary DELL? I mean, do you need such an expensive system to create great looking films?
