since i'm building my rig, piece by piece, can anyone point me in the direction of a good guide that lists what parts you'd want to get in order to make a great video editing rig? i tried searching for one last nite, and found one or two good ones, but i want something that says "this is the mobo you'd want...", "for a good HDD go get...", etc. i'd also like to see perhaps a guide that has 3 different types of rigs - an expensive high end one, a normal one and a budget one.
the way i buy things is i like to start from the top - the expensive, out of my budget product - then work my way down to something just out of my reach but is the best product that i can realistically imagine ever having. since i'm married and have a mortgage, i can only invest so much in this hobby, but i like to feel good knowing i have the best product possible.
i checked the guide on this site, in the Perfect Editing PC forum, but those links point to articles from '04, and i'd like something just a bit more current. i want this rig to last me for quite some time.
