PC I built for my wife http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM would do very well for Premiere Elements, plus scroll down a page or two for 3 price/performance level computers for Premiere Pro... these are, of course, MY ideas about what to build, if I was building a new computer for myself... YOUR ideas may wind up being different
I don't use Elements... How do the builds you listed stand up to After Effects etc? Isn't RAID always a good idea with Video editing?
>I don't use Elements
Which is why I said to scroll down to see 3 builds at 3 price levels
I edit AVCHD without raid, so can't say if raid is "always" a good idea

Do you personally use the 3rd build to edit ACVHD ? Or a different system?
