Additional Comments: I'm heading off to college and I'm looking to put together a new computer capable of working with hd footage from my canon 7d. My current desktop is 4-5 years old and can't handle the software. I've been browsing and lurking the internet for information on what to put together. I've seen suggestions for the i5 2500 and 560ti card.

    without a doubt you want a ivy bridge i7 for a video workstation (unless you can squeeze a sandy-E in the budget)
    Intel Core i7-3770 $319.99
    Workstation motherboard
    ASRock B75 PRO3 $79.99
    Video editing needs lots of RAM:
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) $82.99
    a quality 550 watt PSU is plenty to power the rig:
    XFX ATX 550 Power Supply $62.16
    OS drive
    SAMSUNG 830 $129.99
    Scratch disc
    Western Digital RE4 WD2503ABYX 250GB $82.99
    Storage drive
    Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB SATA 6GB $99.99
    cheap case; you want it to look good or spend all night rendering on HD video?
    Rosewill R218-P-BK Black $29.99
    no, it is not a gaming card but neither is this rig for gaming.
    EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Superclocked 1024MB $124.99
    After Mail In Rebate: $104.99
    SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner $16.99
    TOTAL $1048.98 w/shipping costs $1028.98 after rebate

    there are several aspects of a video workstation that is different that a gaming rig besides the need for an i7 andmore RAM; having a scratch disc that is separate than the OS. you can get away with using the storage disc but they are usually slower and will take a bit more time in the write/reading while rendering.

    now to be honest, i am not sure that 4 sticks of that RAM will not cause a potential problem. if you can squeak out $15 more for:
    G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) $94.99
    because the timings are a little looser; CL 9 as opposed to CL 7 in the G.Skill.
  4. thanks everyone
  5. "Video editing needs lots of RAM"

    uh, no. video editing uses comparatively little ram because the footage is streamed from the hard drive, and they only operate on a few frames at a time... entire feature films have been edited (and colored and finished ) in 2k on 32-bit machines. *compositing* uses comparatively more RAM because you are more likely to have eight or ten image layers from the sequence loaded in a single frame... but even that caches from disk. (hence why feature films have been composited on 32-bit machines with *much* less than 2 GB of RAM...) Video editing is processor and drive speed, and thanks to CUDA and OpenCL, it is also becoming about GPU speed. The importance of drive speed is directly proportional to what kind of video you are editing (uncompressed 1080p is 121 MB/S).
