    Correct spec?

    Dogminder Level 1

      Hi, I'm just about to upgrade to CS5 for HDV editing (currentlystruggling with CS3) and apparantly need to buy a new PC.

       

      I've been recommended the following custom-built system, but not being very technical have no idea if it's good enough.

       

      The specs are as follows:

       

      Processor (CPU): Intel® Core™i7 Six Core Processor i7-970 (3.20GHz) 6.4GTs/12MB Cache

      Motherboard: ASUS® P6X58D PREMIUM: DDR3, USB 3.0 & SATA 6.0GB/s, 3-Way SLI

      Memory (RAM): 24GB KINGSTON HYPER-X TRI-DDR3 1600MHz, X.M.P (6 x 4GB KIT)

      Graphics Card: 1280MB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX570 - 2 DVI,mHDMI - DirectX® 11, 3D Vision Ready

      Memory - 1st Hard Disk: 500GB WD CAVIAR BLACK WD5002AALX, SATA 6 Gb/s, 32MB CACHE (7200rpm)

      2nd Hard Disk: 1TB WD CAVIAR BLACK WD1002FAEX, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64MB CACHE (7200rpm)

      RAID: NONE

      1st DVD/BLU-RAY Drive: 12x BLU-RAY ROM DRIVE, 16x DVD ±R/±RW (£49)

      Memory Card Reader: INTERNAL 52 IN 1 CARD READER (XD, MS, CF, SD, etc) + 1 x USB 2.0 PORT

      Power Supply: CORSAIR 750W TX SERIES (TX750) 80+ ULTRA QUIET PSU (£89)

      Processor Cooling: TITAN FENRIR EVO EXTREME HEATPIPE CPU COOLER (£39)

      Sound Card: ONBOARD 8 CHANNEL (7.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)

      Network Facilities: ONBOARD 10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORT - AS STANDARD ON ALL PCs

      USB Options: 6 x USB 2.0 PORTS @ BACK PANEL (MIN 2 FRONT PORTS) AS STANDARD

      Firewire & Video Editing: 1 x IEEE 1394a FIREWIRE PORT ONBOARD

       

      Will this spec be good enough or could anybody suggest any amendments?

       

      Many thanks,
