Will this set up for a desktop help me smoothly edit Full HD?
Hello guys. I'm new, I'm from Italy and I'm sort of an aspiring filmmaker. Now, I have a kinda fast pc, but it's getting old, especially for what I need. I will soon be buying a new Canon EOS 600D to film some ambitious short films, and I will need a PC capable of editing 1080p smoothly. Also, I will be playing some classic football (soccer for americans) games like FIFA 11.
These are the pieces I was thinking of buying, but I really need some help with them, and will also like to know if they are compatible. My budget would be 850$.
Let me know what you think about it, and what I could do to make it better and perfectly fit my needs, without exaggerately spending. I dunno about the PNY graphic card though. Lots of people told me it's really great for HD editing, despite the price, but I can't play any good graphic games with it. I think my budget for a GPU would go as far as 300$.
Let me know! I really need your help.

What programs will you use? And how much you can spend for everything? Need only tower?
I will be using editing programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. My total budget is 850$, but the thing I really think I can pay more than what I have listed here are priced is the graphics card, because I'm not sure it will be ok. And also, what do you mean by "need only tower"?
don't get the diablotek power supply!!!! Go with a quality 500-550W like the Antec Hard Core Gamer 520W.
the 6950 would be fine, but most editing software likes NVidia a lot better, so I'd consider a GTX 560 ($175) or GTX 460 ($155) over the quattro, which is a couple generations old
Thanks for the answer. So you think the GTX 560 (or maybe the 460, 'cuz 560 costs a bit) will help me more than the Sapphire with my needs? (again, my needs are 85% Full HD Editing, 10% Playing games like FIFA, 5% usual pc uses, internet, watching movies, etc.)
Basically to use Adobe Premiere's GPU acceleration futures you have to get either a 400 dollar Quadro (I think it's the cheapest that supports it) plus with Quadro GPU you have to forgot gaming, or a GTX 570 or 580. There's 470 or 480 option too but that's a bad idea..
So no chance with the GTX 560?
It will be good at gaming but I don't think It will offer you much at Premiere or After Effects...Plus at this price there's a better gaming GPU!
IF I can afford the 570, then buy it. If not, I should look for an Nvidia Cuda. But which one?
GTX 460. No need to look for any higher...and if the hack goes well you can use Adobe Premiere's GPU Acceleration features..Plus it will tear appart Fifa
Wow, thank you so much. You were a great help. I'll come back in less than an year to tell you how my new pc's going. Can't wait to go in vacation to my native country, Santo Domingo, so I can buy from American sites and not spend a fortune on shipping. (I'm half Italian and live in Italy now). Maybe that will happen in December, but I won't get my hopes high. Anyway, I should have it before next July. Thanks again!
wow. In December there will be huge changes, come check with us then and we may have either better equipment and/or lower prices by then
Hmm. If I don't buy it by then, I'll do that
Also, I will be playing some classic football (soccer for americans) games like FIFA 11
Try the new pro evolution soccer 2012 demo, its a classic. Way better than fifa in my opinion. You can thank me later
Nah. I've always being a FIFA fan, but I admit PES was definitely the best for PC in the last 5 years or so, but FIFA finally got cool for PC too this year
I play pes on ps3 but definitely check out the new pes demo
