    new video editing pc.. will this work ? i'm new here, please help me out


      hi everybody my name is mark, . i really hope i write and express myself correctly

      first of all i'd like to say i love this forum. there are some brilliant ppl here with great advice.

      special props to Mr Harm Millaard.. wow u know sum serious s*** !


      i'm a pro musician my thing has always been protools, recording production etc. its time for me to get into video using adobe premiere pro

      mostly i'll be doing my own music vids for my solo projects and for my band as well as professionally done as possible. i'm a nebie at all things video but i'm totally obsessive when it come to creative projects. it helps with the learning curve (:


      this is my courant rig setup





      http://CPU INTEL|CORE I5 750 2.66G R


      http://MEM 4Gx2|GSKILL F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL


      3 Wd hd's 160 500 and 640 gb's

      2 monitors 22' hanns g and a 19 "something

      i believe a 400 or 450 w powersupply

      stock vidow card

      2 cd/dvd

      i think that covers the basics

      total 1,399.92      i'm pretty much at my budget max


      will this setup be able to handle both my protools and adobe premier cs5? am i missing something ?

      what would be the best  HD set up wise for max audio/video performance  ? i was thinking a dual boot ?

      with  2 new hd's i'll have 5 all told.

        3 for video... 150 veloci raptor  2tb Hitachi and WD 640

      ..2 for protools... the wd 160 and the WD 500


      i guess i'm looking for the best way to set up my rig for max audio/video performance and pass the information on to my cuz who's in the pc building biz his thing is gaming not so much video editing.

      i really hope i wrote this out correctly so everybody can understand what i'm trying to say and will be able to give me the proper guidance i need


      let the suggestions begin


      thank u for your time
