Budget? Recommendations vary for $ 500, 2K, 10K.
Jay... I am thinking about building one... how are you at putting things together?
What I am looking at (right now, may change as new motherboards come on the market before I start)
300 Motherboard (Asus P6T ??)
350 Intel i7 920 2.66
240 6 Gig 3x2 DDR3 Ram set
100 Sata 160G x2
112 Sata 320G x2
35 Pioneer Dvr216D
150 Case w/Power
20 Pci Printer Card
160 Vantec Housings x4
260 Ati Radeon HD4870 512
My budget is around $1500.00.
I'm not building it myself but looking to do a custom order with one of the makers.
Well, if you don't want to have removeable drive housings, you can cut $160 from mine (Vantec) and you could have just 2 hard drives instead of the 4 I have listed, for another $100 less
That would give you $1,467 for a SCREAMING editing computer
Of course, I did not include Windoze in my list, since I work at a University and can get anything from XP to Vista32 to Vista64 for no cost... and I would go with V64 for what I will, someday, build
