A friend is interested in having me do a build for him for video editing. $3000 includes box and monitor (I think he already has one in mind so we'll just say $2800 for build). He wants it to be somewhat future proof. I have been out of the game for a while so I am posting here to get an idea of what is the usual recommendation these days :)

Adobe CS4 master suite. I will probably be buying from newegg but I will shop around for good deals.

Been looking into a build for you and come to the conclusion that I would be doing you a disservice by recommending a build at the moment.

Within the next few months we will have the Intel Z68, some already released, > http://www.google.co...iw=1258&bih=820

We also have AMD efforts, Bulldozer, > http://www.google.co...60cd8c667a857f3

Then each of them will have there own method of enhancing graphics, IE LucidLodgic.

It will have a large impact on workstation builds. Until some test rigs have been benchmarked I suggest you hold off, do some reading, research, and let me know what you think.

Seeing as he has been telling me he's "about to be ready to build it" for months I think your advice is really solid. Thanks for the info to get my research headed in the right direction! I will be looking into those.
