HDV Editing System - November 2007

Hey all, I was reading some previous threads because I want to build a new computer that can go "beyond the call of duty" of HDV editing.

From previous threads, I compiled these pieces to the puzzle:

(1) COOLER MASTER Mystique RC-632S-KKN1-GP Black Aluminum/ SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case -- $79.99

(1) GIGABYTE GV-NX86S256H GeForce 8600GTS 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card -- $162.99

(1) ZALMAN ZM600-HP ATX12V 600W Power Supply -- $169.99

(1) Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80562Q6600 -- $279.99

(1) OCZ ATI CrossFire 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2A8002GK -- $77.99

(2) Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM -- $169.98 Total

(1) SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20" 2 ms (GTG) DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor -- $264.99

(1) PHILIPS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe 2-Tone SATA Model SPD6104BD -- $36.99


Any changes or opinions?

Thanks a lot!

Make sure you've got firewire.
Make sure you've got plenty of USB 2.0 plugs for adding additional external hard drives....as this space fills fast!
Which NLE will you use as some work better with certain processor types than others etc....I'm no expert on this but I'm sure others can help here.

Go for a big tower, not a midi tower. That limits you too much in disk drives and you want to avoid using USB or fire wire externals. Also if you are considering SLI, which has no benfit for NLE, consider a more powerful PS. 600 W may not be enough. Add another SATA disk. Go for 4 GB RAM. Consider the Lite-On LH-20A1S DVD burner, it is currently the most reliable burner available.

Thanks for your reply's.

I will be using Adobe Premier Pro CS3.

As for the burner, I would like lightscribe and the burner you mentioned, Lite-On LH-20A1S, is not lightscibe enabled. Any dependable lightscribe burners out there?

LG, NEC are the next ones to come to mind, but beware, Lightscribe is sloooowww.Full hub printables and a cheap Canon Pixma inkjet printer may be a better choice.

Harm I run 4gb Ram on my Dell PW380WS, however keep in mind that XP-32 can only see the 1st 3gb and that's only with the /3GB switch enabled in the boot.ini file, unless he's going to run XP-64, the extra GB of memory will not be seen by the OS nor passed onto any app.

XP 32 bit 2 gigs of ram is plenty as when 3 is turned on I enountered a whole bunc of issues that I'd rather not deal with until Vist 64 becomes more stable. Do yourself a favor and don't get xp64 that system is pretty choppy and almost no support out there for it as Vista 64 is the main point of next gen OS interest. Otherwise awesome system, I got the Maximus Formula MB but that doesn't support SLI but I have an 8800 GTS 640mb GDDR3 evga card so I think I'll be alright for a while, I definitely recommend a beast for the price. Also look into getting the Arctic cooler for the proc, I OC'd my machine to 1333 FSB and 3.0ghz and ran the overload test, it perform like butter. good luck.
