Need Ideas For Setting Up A Video Editing System

Recommended Posts

hi ..

I would like to have suggestions for building a performance Desktop PC on a tight budget :-) that'll be used for the sole purpose Video & Image Editing.(It wont be used for 3-D rendering or previewing & the video in will generally be from dv) my tight budgets around 1500$ +/- $100

 

I would like to hear an approximate for cost estimation as well

 

I dont mind AMD or P4 as long as it performs and doesnt melt my mobo during long hours of rendering without having to spend a signifanct amt on cooling .

 

these r my ideas

-----------------

Pentium D 830 - 3.0GHz \ AMD Athlon 64 X2 1MB 3800+

GigaByte GA-8I945G Pro \ MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum

MSI GeForce NX6600-TD256E

DDR2 1GB x 2 PC4200

Sony DRU-800A

Samsung DVD CDRW

120GB SATA II WD

500W Thermaltake PSU

Canopus ADVC110

 

Im not sure abt the dual core comparisons betn these 2 models of CPU's .. but then again im not sure of the performance upgrade of dual cores either .. is there another cpu solution reaching almost the same or more performance with even a lower priced cpu? (itd be gr8 if someone cud tell me which single core cpu[single thread app] nearly beats the dualcore[multi-thread app] & is much cheaper)

 

do give me pointers on what i should look out for coz ive no idea of the performances / heat issues / driver issues or any other problems with the hardware(cpu,mobo,gfx,drives ..etc) i think is possibly ok .. i wanted to make a no-nonsense system ..

 

waiting for everyones comms ..

i would go amd intel/amd are pretty close in the video editing world now and amd will run cooler.

 

 

hdd is that going to be enough for what your doing? if im not mistaken video editing takes up alot of space

Well your on a budget, and making a vid pc doesnt come cheap.

Go with an intel since you cant really afford the x2

the psu has to go

and you need a good 500gb for a decent setup for video editing.

"Go with an intel since you cant really afford the x2"

ok .. but i find Athlon 64 X2 3800+ for USD374 & Intel D 830 for USD313

 

"the psu has to go"

ok i dint think abt the exact requirements for psu .. do suggest some ..

 

"and you need a good 500gb for a decent setup for video editing"

actually i do have extra SATA I HDD's - so that part is not an issue ..

 

"i would go amd intel/amd are pretty close in the video editing world now and amd will run cooler."

I dont but here & there i still keep finding those vibes of " .. if u need video render performance then .. its intel .. its intel "

if your trying to keep costs down go with whatever you find to be cheaper

 

"the psu has to go"

ok i dint think abt the exact requirements for psu .. do suggest some ..

 

i use Enermax PSUs in most everything i build but i have herd good things about the Pc Power & Cooling brand units

when it comes to graphics, more space the better B:)

 

 

 

heres a link to a good informative site

ok guys what im really worried abt is the stable performances of the cpu/mobo performance/heat issues of both intel & amd configs..

 

coz ive so not rigged up dual core systems & am not aware of its problems & its real life performance ...

AMD will run a lot cooler than Intel, so if heat is one of your issues then go with AMD, the new AMD X2 is really good for this type of stuff, just make sure you can afford it all :)
