Hey everyone! I'm looking into upgrading my current PC to be able to produce full 1080P HD videos using software like adobe Premeire, After Effects, vegas pro, etc. I was wondering what parts you people would purchase with a budget of 500 - 600$
So far I have the monitor, the tower, the harddrive and some other minor things (keyboard, speakers, etc). So if anyone could list a good motherboard, video card, CPU and RAM that would be awesome!! If you wanted to get creative, spend a little more money than what I mentioned above, that's just my budget. Also, I may need some type of cooling system, as well as power supply.
THIS (and a few other tools) are ALL you are likely to need AND this sw sees all 4 cores of your proc and will use them ... interactive/context help/tutorials lead you thru all processes !! 4 layered tracks of video ... it is enough and output is awesome !!
They are really awesome. What you do is find the products you are looking for, and right in the checkout, you can price match other Canadian retailers. For every component, you can get the lowest prices in Canada.
Newegg usually has some pretty good prices, but with NCIX I'm sure you can shave off more.
Oh and yes, ram is your friend. You're going to want to aim for 8gb if you can. 1080p video is demanding. I'm editing my 5D2 video and it just hiccups with my 3gb big time. My next system in a month or two will hopefully have 12gb, although 8gb would probably do the trick.
