Hi folks -- I haven't built a PC for over 6 years so have had a lot of learning to do, thank goodness for this forum.
I think I've dreamed up a rig that will function -- looking to do video editing and no gaming on a budget.
Any tips on potential disasters would be very appreciated.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within a week
System Usage from Most to Least Important:
Video Editing - Premiere CS5.5, DAW - Reaper, Photoshop, Desktop Publishing, Web Browsing
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, sound card
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: msy.com.au
Country of Origin: Australia
Overclocking: Maybe in the future.
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: not sure yet --will get a 22" monitor in the future to supplement an old 17" that'll I'll use in the meantime.
I would like to have a reasonably quiet PC, appearance doesn't matter so much as it will live under a desk. I won't be gaming so I won't need a GPU with this processor m/board combo... and can run dual monitors ... is this correct?
Looks like a really nice build for the purpose. 16gb might be beneficial based on the file sizes you are dealing with.
Thanks rolli, good to know the research has paid off - I will go for 16GB too.
I'll now get a Crucial M4 SSD 64GB for the O/S drive so I won't have to muck around down the track -- still keeps it around the $1000 mark.
