    Hi Group: newbie/oldie question here. I need a new desktop machine to
    run Adobe Audition 3.0 as well as digital video editing software. I will
    be purchasing Vista Ultimate 64, Adobe Audition 3.0, digital video
    editing software, probably something like Cyberlink DVD editing, and I
    need a good/fast processor, good/fast main board, large amount of RAM,
    say 10GB, and medium-large hard drive (about 750GB-1000GB), an excellent
    video graphics card as well as an excellent audio rendering card for 5.1
    surround sound. I'd like a 17" - 19" flat screen, infrared keyboard and
    infrared mouse.

    Are there any tech-savvy readers who could possibly please direct me -
    but I do not wish to spend more than $3000 on the entire system,
    excluding software.

  2. Your question is really not appropriate for this forum.
    Your asking for a system design, which is hardware. This is
    a software forum for questions directly related to the
    function of 64-bit Windows operating systems.

    You will need to do some research on your own on the
    internet, or, consult with a local computer shop that
    specializing in designing systems.

    It would be worth finding a homebuilt or hardware group -
    uk.comp.homebuilt is very good, I don't know if there is a US equivalent?

    That was nice of Jeff to point ProfQ in the right direction.

    For video editing I would recommend to stay away from Vista, and stick
    to XP. There are few programs which run well on Vista 64. Drivers is a
    main concern when you're using special video hardware.
    Vista has unfortunately to much overhead for time-critical
    applications like video-editing. Maybe if you spend hours/days in
    killing all non-necessary backgroundtasks etc etc, you can get a
    reasonably decent running system, but it's just a waste of time if yo
    can do the same job in XP without much tweaking.

    cheers
