I'm building a new video editing and compositing computer system. Some effects take hours to render.
At the moment i have: Computer:
P4 3.4GHz Prescott 800FSB HT, ASUS P5AD2 board, Corsair 1GB PC2-4200 DualDDR2 RAM, ASUS EN6600 TD GeForce 256MB Graphics, 3x Seagate 80GB SATA NCQ HD in RAID performance mode.
And I need more more more processing power, its wayyy tooo slow at times.
what do you recommend? i hear there is a new intel chip coming out next month" Intel® Core™2 Duo processor Conroe"
can you get 2 CPU's in one motherboard.. is that the fastest way to go?
I’m also looking at 2* 500GB HDD's and a 20GB one for OS storage, or is the RAID performance mode faster?
2GB RAM. Or should I hit 4?
Budget.... $2500AUS,,, maybe $2700. But if you know something for more let me know. (Under $4000 though).
Thanks if anyone can help or give opinions!
