    Default Home made ???

    Hi all,

    A couple of question please...

    A friend of mine has offered to make me a P.C for HDV and video editing. Here's what he's offered:

    AMD 64 3200+
    Sapphire Radeon x1300 256mb 128mb DDR2
    MSI KT8 neo-fis2r Motherboard
    1044mb DD2 Memory
    200GB 8mb cacha SATA maxtor harddrive
    16x DVD burner
    2x BENQ 17" LCD's

    Cost to me 695 At the moment this is my top end financially.
    What do you think ???

    Question number two:

    Premier 1.5.1 with cineform aspect hd. Or Sony vegas+ DVD..???

    Cheers

    My first thought is that you will need a boatload more HDD space than the single 200Gb disk you mentioned.

    HD can run at about 80Gb per hour of footage. You do the math. Either way you go, you will def want at least two physical drives. One for the OS, say a 60 or 80Gb drive to install Windows and your s/w and then keep your 200 Gb drive for a video drive.

    I have only used Premier Pro1.51 and Aspect HD and love them. I can't really offer any comparison to your other choice as I've not used it or even seen it tbh. I alrady had a certain $ investment in Adobe s/w so the 'upgrade' to Aspaect HD was the obvious choice.

    Any PC of those sorts of specs will do the job. Make sure you get a firewire port in it of course and plenty of HDD space, especially for HDV editing.

    Also, don't forget to budget for thre s/w. premiere Pro 1.51 and Cineform Aspect HD together could cost more than the PC you're putting them on.

    A quick glance shows that Aspect HD with the Adobe bundle (Premiere Pro, Audition, Encore and AE) will run around 700 after VAT.
