    Incompatibily check on a new build

    Chris Dekker

      Dear forum users and experts,

       

      My name is Chris Dekker, I'm from the Netherlands and new to the forums. I started basic editing about 6 years ago and moved from Premiere to AVID to FCP to Premiere. The Adobe package does everything and more.

       

      I'm not a full time editor, but I would love to invest some more time into film and post production. My current laptop has no problems working with CS5 in SD. But since I switched over to filming in AVCHD, my system obviously fails - the laptop is over 3 years old.

       

      After much consideration, I decided to take the plunge and build a desktop myself. It is meant for creation; the Adobe collection, but also composing music, writing, illustrating. Taking the new technological developments and my own user profile in consideration, I decided on a Sandy Bridge processor.

       

      Years ago I built a PC, but that's where my experience with hardware ends; I am really rusty and am outdated on the know-how. Storage and memory are the two main things that I am uncertain about.

       

      So the build that I came up with might have incompatibilies. Before I order the parts, I would really apreciate if you could let me know about any flaws or points that need adressing:
