For recording, you need a dedicated hard drive. I would recommend at least a seagate barricuda, but you get better performance with a WD black.

For multimedia, my fav is the Barracuda XT (getting hard to find) and behind that the WD Black (green too danged slow). For video stuff Id want a CUDA enabled GFX card .... less important now if using premier CC which is Open CL enabled.

Note.... last generation MoBo / CPU wont put a performance crimp on you but it does put you 12-18 months closer to obsolescence.

And i mean with the wd green. Ideally, you want to have a hard drive that is dedicated to recording, a hard drive (or SSD) that is dedicated to games and OS, and a hard drive for media and lesser used applications and games.
