    new PC build for CS5.5


      Hi, all.  Firstly, thanks to all the forum contributors, your posts have been my primary mode of research as I prepare to take the plunge and build a computer capable of running Premiere Pro.  Here's what I've come up with so far, but please note that I'm not a professional editor nor do I aspire to be one.  The goal here is to edit a ~20 minute short film captured on the Canon 7D.


      processor: i7 2600K + ZALMAN CNP9500

      mobo: ASUS P8Z68-V

      GPU: ASUS ENGT440/DI/1GD5

      PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series GOLD AX750

      HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 x2

      RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8gb DDR3 1600 (2 x 4gb)

      optical drive: LITE-ON iHBS112 BD

      case: COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced


      Right now, funds are limited, so RAID isn't an option with hard drive prices being what they are.  Will the above rig get the job done?
