Need your advise on Video editing system

Hello,
I'm need to put a new system together to run adobe CS5.
After effects (which needs lots of ram)
Premiere Pro( has mercury playback engine so I need 1gb DDR5 ram Nividia Femi card. there a hack I wanted to try to use http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5.htm)
Photoshop. I will run this with 64bit Win 7 Pro. No games.
Overclocking, well I've built 4 different system but I have never overclock. I'm open to the idea but I would have educate myself on how to do it.
Anyone ever tried this hack to run snow leapord on X58 mother board http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=185097
Here what I'm thinking of
GA-X58A-UD5 or Asus Premium motherboard (on the Gigabyte boards, is the problem with the raid only when using SSD or any hard drive?
I need firewire and esata to hook up alot of peripherals I own, so gigabyte board wins here.
Choice for ram
Mushkin 998770 PC3-10666 9-9-9-24 1.5V 1333MHZ 3X4gb Total of 12GB or
GSKILL Ripjaws Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9T-12GBRL 9-9-9-24 1.5V
MSI Geforce GTX 460 cyclone graphic card. Quadro are over my budget!
Case Cool Master HAF 922
Thing I already have
i7 950 bloomfield CPU
PC power and Cooling silencer 750 Watt
LITE-ON Black 12X Blu-ray Burner Model iHBS112
2 WD 7200 1TB raid 0
So what do you think? Any issue I should be made aware of? Thanks for everyone help.

  1. hmmm kind of remind me of myself when i was building new system for same purpose and software. 12gb ram is more then enough, till now i havn't seen my after effects or premiere pro cs5 using more then 7-8gb ram of my 12gb. though i would suggest adding an SSD in ur build, will help a lot.
  2. Actually Icrontic got excellent results X6 + 8GB RAM + MPE in CS5 Premiere and u dun have to deal with mobos that cost an arm and a leg hehe
    A case for GPU computing: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and the Mercury Playback Engine

    Quote:
    This project consists of compressed 640×480 video footage. These small video files were being eaten alive by the massive 1090T hexa-core processor and 8GB of RAM. Premiere Pro CS5′s increased performance with multi-core systems coupled with bleeding fast hardware will make fast work of any simple projects such as this, not giving the GPU enough work to really make a difference. These results do suggest that if you’re editing small-time video footage, you will not benefit much from using Mercury Playback.


    From $625AR (add bells/whistles like SSD, etc as per desire/budget) Use promo gift card to nab an after market cooler as well hehe
