MB capable of handling TWO dual core processors.
High end graphics, capable of editing top line T.V. production.
Two HDD - each 250-300 GB.
Firewire capabilities.

Win XP Pro.

Any help will be apprciated. Thanks!

Build your own would be my advice - find the motherboard you want and take it from there.

...but this is for a client and needs to be spot on. He edits for a T.V. company, and needs th best.

Anyone help. Please!!!

Alienware are high end PCs, expensive but use top quality components. It really depends on what you need. You could buy something like a top of the line Dell or Evesham.

...Totally-braindead - why didn't I think of them?

Have asked Alienware, who say it is not possible to put TWO dual core procs on one motherboard.

I think the guy was having me on. Closing this thread now

Try click here, it's a boutique company based in Canada that makes excellent machines and also has excellent customer service. Mine came from Voodoo.

If he is Editing Video, surely Multi VDU capacity is more important.

I have yet to hear of software designed to run with Paired Dual Core Processors. There is little enough around designed specifically to run with Dual Core as it is.
