Video Processing

Hiya folks

Looking to upgrade my system here, and need some advise.

Primarily the system will be used to edit HD video with some gaming and internet use as a secondary priority.

My question is... what would be the best mobo, cpu, graphics card, memory combination to make HD editing a lot less frustrating then it is at the moment.

Overal budget is around $700

Thanks in advance

  1. Hi Simon you budget is a bit tight for what you require, but here are some recommendations.

    MB-Try settle with a H55 board you can find a decent one for about $200, prefrably Gigabytes as they are more reliable then others.

    CPU-Try get a core i5 750 quad core cpu this should definiatley do the trick is say. $250

    Memory-Try get Kingston Value Ram you dont realy need asnything of low latency just get a single 2GB DDR3-1333MHZ and then get 2 mosules (4GB). $75 X 2 = $150

    Graphics-Here i woul recommend all you left over cash as much as possible, dedicate all that into the card for a decent card for your requirments i would look at spending $190 maybe look at a GTS 250 if they are still available or try to push it on a ATI 5770 as it is a very decent card.

    Total on system $800 +/-

    Not sure on pricing as im from SA i had to do manual conversions =)

    Kindest Regards Rob."
