All the basic ingedients are there. Good CPU, GPU, memory and a number of hard disks. If you want to improve anything consider adding some memory to increase it to 12 GB and maybe some disks in a raid configuration with a good controller. But I would first see whether you need that with the majority of the work in SD. For HD you may need that raid configuration, but since you are only starting with HD, look at how it works with your current configuration. You can try the http://ppbm4.com benchmark and see how your system performs in relation to other systems. Mail the results to Bill (and possibly myself by private mail).
Thanks for the answer, i will run the script as soon i get to my home and send it !
What about the locations of the files and media cache, scratch disks ? are they ok ? i see a number of combinations on the web but wanted to know what should be correct one for optimal work please.
PS: I have no idea how to achive RAID configuration, i will look it up on the web ! thanks for that tip !
