      i would be working mainly on
      -premiere pro 2 (planning to use cs5 with new comp)
      -After effects cs3
      -Photoshop cs3
      -3ds max

       

      i would be editing mainly DV footage and sometimes .vob files and finally giving my output on dvd. i use tapes to shoot and capture it in premiere.

       

      i am planning to go for intel as i compared it with amd at anandtech. i5 2500 clearly seem to beat amd in benchmarks.

       

      shud i pull the trigger on intel? amd with 6 cores is making me think twice.

       

      i dont intend to get a killer comp which is evidient from the the comps. tht i hav listed above. i just want to knw is, is i5 2500 sandy bridge compatible with this mobo? the amd person told me tht amd 1090t has onboard graphics card and for intel i wil have to buy another graphics card. is tht true?

       

      which system u find more reliable and sturdy to work for? i dont want to go intel way simply cuz its intel

       

      kindly help.

       

      regards
