    Help finalize my Video Editing Build - 2013

    markzimm Level 1

      I've learned a ton from all of the contributors here and I really appreciate your time and effort.  I need to buy a new system soon and would love to get your opinions on my proposed build.  I will be using CS6, primarily PP, AE and SpeedGrade.  Also, possibly some work in Trapcode Particular, Twixtor, Cinema 4D and possibly Blender.


      I hope to learn whether there's anywhere to cut costs (over my budget, of course!) and if it is a "balanced" system.
