Hey guys, This will be my first computer that I will be building so I am not too familiar with any brands. I have always wanted to get involved with playing around with video editing, so I am a NOVICE at video editing, hopefully I will learn to hone those skills. This is not for any business use, only to fulfill the hobbyist side in me.
Approximate Purchase Date: Within a month or so.
Budget Range: ($800-900. Willing to spend close to 1,000 if the extra hundred is worth the upgrades in part.)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: (Multi-tasking, Video Editing, Surfing the net, music)
Parts Not Required: (keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, DVD/RW drive) I already have a copy of windows 7 ultimate 64-bit
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Any.
Country of Origin: United States, Minnesota
Parts Preferences: None?
Overclocking: Maybe? Not sure
SLI or Crossfire:Maybe? Not sure
Monitor Resolution: At the moment I am using a dual screen. (Max Display MD-219)
Additional Comments: I'm not sure if this would help out or not on narrowing down parts, but the software I will be using for video editing will be adobe CS5 after effects and sony vegas pro. Videos will be coming from a canon rebel t2i.
The actual monitor resolution for one is 1280x1024. Gaming to me is not very important, however I don't mind having the option.
I'm curious, would setting up a SSD be difficult? IS there a significant difference if I were to have a SSD just for my OS and Adobe software and then have that internal hard drive you recommended for the rest? Or should the harddrive you pointed out be fine?
