Hello, I need to build a pc for a 10 minute corporate video contract I just got. I only have about a $1000 budget. I will be doing video editing, After Effects titling and Ken Burns effect, and music.
I have the software already (windows 7 home and Adobe CS) and just need to know what hardware is current. I have built many PC's in my time, but I haven't kept up to date for the last 3 years so I'm unfamiliar with everything again. I have 2 weeks or more to research this, so I can take my time here to find the best system. But if there's already a good guide system, I'd rather just use that.
Thanks for starting me out on this!
Hi, Why_Me, and anyone else who may be reading this.
My budget came through! Yay! I am ready to pull the trigger on this over the weekend or on Monday. I made a few changes (case, mobo) but basically went with the recommended build. Only thing is, a number of the combo's suggested have expired. I wonder if you would take a look at this build and my changes to it and comment on or recommend changes to find some savings. My budget has nudged up a bit, but I'd like to save as much as possible.
Hey! Everything arrived and I built it last night!
It went fine, though I forgot how many damn things had to be plugged in!
Only problem I had was the last step, When I plug in the video card, I don't get any signal to the monitors. Works fine with onboard video, but with the card, lights light, fans whir, but monitor shows no signal... Any thoughts?
I should probably post a new thread for this, but if anyone considers the same build I wanted them to see this.
