      How does this system look?


      Any Suggestions


      This system will be used for Standard Definition editing with the move to HD early next year.


      Is the GTX580 w/ 3GB of memory a good choice?


      This will be used for commercial production. It is replacing an Avid Mediacomposer/Adobe Premiere 7 system.


      Output will primarily be via firewire to Sony DSR decks.
