Hello all...I have come to the conclusion i need a complete new system.
 
I may have to go to DVC....but before i do that, can you please advise on the best and most durable specs i should take into consideration.  The editing platform should be Premiere Pro. 5.5 (Possibly 6)
 
I have read the Adobe forums, and some ideas to take into consideration :
 
Warrior Video Editing System
 
GTX-680 Graphics card
 
 
7200RPM drives
Faster Hard drives
 
Big Tower Case (not the mid tower case
 
PSU - eXtreme Power supply Calculator Pro v2.5 Premium
 
Your ideas and advise is very much appreciated

Hi Oku,
 
Depends on what you want to spend and what you're set is.  I have a tower with two monitors and an external preview monitor but I can only edit HDV on it.
 
I also bought this when I moved on to Prem 5.5.
 
 
It's an i7 with a graphics card supported by Adobe and with 8gb of ram it does what I need.  It only has a 15" screen but you can connect it to any size tv via the HDMI out.
 
If you want a tower, give me a call as I have a friend who can build you a good set up at a greatly reduced price than the co. you mentioned in your PM.
 
Please make sure you're happy with your version of 5.5 otherwise you'll have to add this to the cost.
 
Have a look at the specs for the machine below this post by H & M.
 
Give that work around I told you about in the PM.

Hi Peter,
 
Thank you once again for yur time.  My set should be a desk top with an example of specs i mentioned above; graphics card supported by
Adobe, as you mentioned and maybe about 12gb of ram with a chance to add more rams if need be in the future; a very good cooling fan (as i will take this back to Africa); if possible would like to be able to view on both timeline monitor and external monitor (tv);
 
Cost....i dont know yet...will want to know how much this willl cost  and i shall take it from there.
 
Yes, i will give that work around you told me about in the PM...
