okay guys, I am new to this forum. just starting up a company doing recording of Recitals and graduations and weddings. have a few projects this summer so I figured it was time to invest in some good hardware. Wanting to get some opinions as to what I just ordered.
I haven't got a camera yet, planning on getting that in about 3 months. Right before my first project. I am thinking for the price and quality I will probably go for a Canon GL1. Any thoughts?
Below are the specs of the computer I just ordered. let me know what you guys think of the setup. Thanks.
Intel Pentium D 820 Processor (Dual Core)
ThermalTake heat Sink Full Copper 2700rpm
Acrtic Silver 5 THermal Compound for the Processor
4gb DDR2 4200mhz Ram
1x 120gb SATA HD for Operating system.
1x 200gb IDE HD for Software
2x 300gb SATA HD Raided-0 with 16mb Cache for VIdeo files (May not raid these together. Any opinions on this??
Matrox RT.x100 Hardware Capture card
FTF Gforce 6800 256 Dual head Video Card (Older technology but its inexpensive and PCIe)
Intel Motherboard with with on board Firewire, 6 2.0 USB and LAN. Hyper threading 1024mhz FSB
Powemax 580watt Power Supply
I already have a case there for I didn't include that in the setup. I also already have an x800Pro Video card but none of the motherboards with AGP have the right chipset for compatability with the Matrox Capture Card. And I knew I wanted that card. So I guess the x800 is gonna be collecting dust unless I can find someone to buy it off me. (hint hint) LOL
Anyways, I have enjoyed reading the forum keep all the good help coming guys.
