1 - unless you have the specific need for 10 bit output, the Quaddro card is WAY over priced and under performing compared to other nVidia cards

Faster startup, not much else for video editing
>“Boot drive”: one drive with two partitions, partition C: Programs, partition D: Data
If that is STATIC data, not data that you are using during editing, that will cause no harm
Trying to use a single drive's partition for video editing CAN cause harm

Since the partition D: contains static data, I do not need a 10 bit output, and I am O.K. with the 2 minutes startup of the Encore, I will stick to my "old" system.
However, I have another question: Would the Dell UltraSharp U2713HM monitor (not cheap ) be a considerable improvement over my (really) old Samsung SyncMaster2443BWX monitor? CNET published a very good review of it.
Thanks again, Laci.
You would go from a TN panel to an IPS panel and get far more resolution. No doubt the quality is much better, the size is a lot larger and the resolution is a lot better, plus the backlight is edge-lit LED. Whether it is worth the money only you can decide.
Thanks Harm! I am still using the system I built 2 years ago (mostly) based on your advice. (One of) the best part of it is the LianLi case ! I will buy the monitor. - Laci.
