Thanks to everyone for all the great input so far.

Michael I have look at the SATA drives @10,000 rpm 36 gig. Happen to find them yesterday. I think I'm going to pick one up (been buying through also, love the $2.99 same day shipping, have placed 2 orders this week alone) This Asus mainboard, can run both IDE, and SATA. I've decided I'm going to run the 36 gig SATA drive as my primary (OS, and Programs) and then I'm going to run 2 120 gig 7200rpm sata drives in RAID 0 for my video capture. I think the 36 gig drive will be plenty of space for me (I'm not a gamer), and if I had to I could ad another one, or another IDE drive.

As far as the studio Monitor and external amp go, I was going to go that route for a couple of reasons, I wanted to use a pair of Yamah NS10's, but I just found out they have discontinued production of them (Being here in Nashville I've been in a few Pro studios, and I can't remember a one that didn't have a pair), also I want to use an external amp so that I might have the option of sampling sound on different types of speakers (pro monitors, boxed up car speakers, etc.) I am partners in a rock band ( and we have a home studio where we do all our own demos (studio is not really good enough for anything more than demos) And that's how our monitor set up is, now that might be alittle overkill for a NEL set up, but as I've posted in another thread, I'm having delusions of Kevin Smith grandure, and I was planning on adding a Pro tools setup later down the road (Digi 002).

Now as far as color production monitor goes, I will most likely get a Sony (if money is right) or JVC, think I'll go with a 9" so I can carry it along with me and use while filming. Don't know when I will pick up a VTR, but I will sometime befor ethe end of the year, haven't started looking fully into them.

But as far as the Video card goes, I'm still undecided, but closer, I'll have to make up my mind by the weekend, and I want to have this baby up and running by end of next week.

Any how, thanks again to all

External Amps


I have an old Harman AVR70. It isn't 5.1 but it has the power to push nice speakers so I can get the "real" noise vs the cheap talk from those little desk top thingies. I also run it with my Mackie 1202. Plus I can take the video in and out to another monitor or plasma and control A/V seperate.

A good rag to read is

The also have residential contractor.

I like to watch those for the new product reviews. They don't get into the NLE stuff but they do discuss interesting stuff.
