Hey, this is a potenial setup for a PC dedicated to video editing and graphic design with Photoshop and Adobe Premire 2.0.
Case: Aspire X-Plorer
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
Mobo: Asus A8N5X
RAM: 2 Corsair Value Select 1 GB PC 3200 (2 GB total)
Power Supply: Enermax 600 Watt
Hard drives: 1 Westurn Digital Caviar SE 80 GB, 2 WD Caiviar SE 320 GB
Graphics card: Nvidia 7600XT
DVD burner: BenQ DW1655
Firewire Card: Belkin PCI to 1394a card
The budget for this is around $1500.
1. How is the Graphics card? Too powerful? Can anyone suggest another?
2. The Case has front mounted firewire slots, but the mobo has no firewire port, hence the firewire card. Will the front mounted Firewire still work?
3. Any comments and suggestions are appreciated, the budget is ~$1500, and i can't afford to wait for new technologies. Thanks.
