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.
