    Help on a new system build highly appreciated


      I found this site a couple of weeks ago and it has helped answer alot of questions but also presented a few new ones.

      I found Harm's Raid post very helpful.

      I am in the market for a new system as a general use PC but I also may be playing the occasional game. The main reason for the PC upgrade is that I want to edit hd video using Premier Pro CS 5.

      Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated especially if I have left anything out or the components don't match
