Looks good, however I would suggest a newer nVidia card like the 570. Brand does not really matter, it is about price/warranty. EVGA, PNY, Point of View, Zotac have good reputations.
I agree with Harm. Overall it's a nice system. Should serve you well.
The one thing I'd change is the 1TB System drive. You don't need something that big. Spend less and get smaller.
I agree with Jim on the smaller boot drive
I have a 320Gig boot drive, on which I have dual boot with WinXP and Win7 64bit Pro
WinXP partition has WinXP and Premiere 6 and Pinnacle Dv500 software
Win7 partition has Win7 and CS5 Master Collection and MS Office Pro and all my Office files plus a few other programs
In total, I only use about HALF of the 320Gig drive
My 3 hard drives are configured as...
1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and all program installs
2 - 320Gig data for Win7 swap file and video project files
3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (*)
(*) for 4 drives, drive 3 all source files & drive 4 all output files
Search Microsoft to find out how to redirect your Windows swap file
Thanks for the feedback. Reassuring to see that I'm on the right track.
Is there any advantage, aside the cost saving, of the smaller system drive? The equivalent 32Gig drive seems to be 10 Euro cheaper at best.
The price difference is so small that you may even get a better deal when buying all those 1 TB disks reducing the price difference even more. I would not worry about that € 10, but Jim is right that you will be hard pressed to use more than around 50- 60 GB on your boot disk.
How about this GPU?
