First let me say….THANK YOU to all the people that have contributed. My eyes are blurred from reading Harm’s contributions. An unbelievable help.
Second. I was not planning to get a NLE until the beginning of next year (still will) but found I had to get a new desktop now. I’m an old 6.5 user. So I’m going to get one from Costco…custom. 90 day return great for me if there is a problem as I'm not a computer wiz.
Goal: to maximize what they offer to get a system that I can load CS5 and “learn” CS5 until I get a NLE next year. Basically a desktop on steriods. So here is what they offer. I understand the basics but I figure somebody may help with the tweaking. I.e. spend $200 more for memory rather then a six core chip. I do plan on adding an internal hard drive after it arrives if that makes sense regarding the choice of hard drives.
Basically...is there anything that will jump out and bite me in the ((*&T*
Notes: Was going to use two monitors so the nVidia GTX 260 was the choice. Because of this...no slots for the sound card option it seems so itegrated sound.
Once again...Thank you for all the help so far!
