I am posting this in the main forum, because a lot of people never notice the "Tips & Tricks" sub-forum. This LINK to an article in that sub-forum will provide one with almost all of the information that they might need, when building, or buying a computer to be used for NLE work.
Please follow the links contained in the linked article above. You will not be sorry.
Thanks Hunt, some interesting articles... particuarly the one on hard drive management.
