Hello all, I'm new to the forums but have been reading many posts - looking for information on building a video editing pc for my needs.
I have recently started up my business and need to build my main media machine.
I basically do all typs of new media work using applications such as premiere pro, after effects, encore dvd, photoshop, illustrator, flash, dreamweaver, etc...
After a lot of research I'm still left somewhat confused as to what components I should buy for the PC I need to build.
I have read that the AMD Dual-Core processor would handle video editing faster than the Intel Dual-Core processor. I have also thought about picking up a Nvidia Quadro video card as well as I heard it works well with applications. 2 gig of ram, hands down. And of course the harddrive setup - I was thinking about having two sets of raid 0, 2x250gb each.
I am based out of Canada but I'm sure models you suggest can be purchased here. My budget will be around $5000 CDN.
Am I close? Are there any suggestions any of you could provide?
Specific models of each component and specific hardware set-up would be greatly appreciated.
