Either AM2 or C2D s fine with me IMO, but if it's just video editing, i honestly don't think you would need sli mobo, plus i would load as much ram as possible. Raid is optional....so anybody else care to correct me if i'm wrong/not entirely right :wink:

well it is all depending on what you want tospend. nowadays intel seems to be blowing amd out of the water, although i still have feelings for amd. as for pure preformance i would go with the intel core 2 duo. the am2 socket is pretty much al show (it hasent shown me any great fortune). as for video i have had my radeon for quite a while and it has served well. i think that for video editing though a much faster card is neccesary. such as the 7950, due to it being "dual-core' it will allow you to render much faster, and jog through your film with crispness. i hope i could be of some help, someone correct me if im wrong.

7950 is basically 2 cards in SLI. The features are mostly for gaming.

Video Editing wouldn't require topline gaming video card, so that would be ill-advised just for editing or waste of money.

Getting a dual core system processor like the C2D would still benefit you. Even if the software isn't taking advantage of the other core, you could do other things while a movie is being processed.

For Video Card I would get the X1900 All In Wonder for Video Editing which is
made for as well as playing Games. Everything else is fine.
