    Default Best computer system for professional TV video editing

    Hi,
    I am setting an editing panel for TV media video editing.

    I want to use Adobe Premiere Pro (Real time rendering support).

    My budget is $9000

    Please advice me for best hardware and if there is any better solution than Adobe Premiere Pro for software

    Thanks.

    Just get a zippy pc, decent g card, lots of monitors and give me the 5000 dollars in change as a consultation fee.

    I found premier to be unstable and fussy when I tried it, but I didnt really try that hard.

    Lots and lost of harddisk space, and the top of the line intel processor.... an ati x1800xt graphics card would be awesome too (since prem pro 2 does rendering via the gpu!!!), oh and at least 2 gigs of ram if your going to be doing some real heavy projects!
    Mac G5 workstation with 4 gigs of ram, 4x250 gig drives in raid 5. High availability cluster server running centos for a server. 2xCanon GL2 cameras.

    Even though I'm a fan of Adobe products and use them myself I am acutely aware of the fact that few (if any) 'real' proffessionals use Premiere Pro. Use of Premiere Pro, from what I can tell, pretty much stops at the 'Wedding Videographer' level of proffessional.

    I don't know why but experience tells me it is the case.

    If you're $9K serious then you might want to do some digging.

    If your company has money to piss away, get Apple stuff

    Get a Quad core powermac G5 with 4GB RAM, 2x500GB SATA HDDs, 256MB Geforce 6600, 30" Cinema Display, Airport & Bluetooth, wireless KB & mouse, 16xDL DVD Rewriter and Final Cut Studio.

    $8,831 on the Apple Store

    I'm not an apple fanboy (happily use a windows PC at home and a mac mini at work) but if someone gave me $9000 to spend (that I could only spend on one computer), I wouldn't waste it on a windows system

    I would not go with mac simply because premiere pro with adobe production studio works on pc a lot better.
    build your self a pc with quad cpu, a lot of hdd space, use ddr3 and least 2gb, good case that has a very good cooling capability, video card you can go with 8800 or quadro cards with 512Mb of ram, or use matrox rtx2, and dual monitors (2.5-3k), then add a production studio (1.6k) and you will be uder 7k, and if you want you can buy your self a bluray burner (.5k)
