Hi, my manager has suggested that we get a very competant PC to edit our video productions with.
I would really like some advice on the spec that this computer should have. It will predominantly be used for processing long periods of video footage and may be running multiple video editing software packages at the same time. I am not too sure on issues such as RAM, graphics cards, processor speeds, Motherboards, firewire ports etc so I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with some advice or a specification on what a typical multimedia computer would consist of to enable us to make an informed decision on what type of PC to purchase.
First and foremost i have been speaking to my IT department and they have advised to get the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-core processor. So if your suggestions concerning all the other hardware revolve around this processor, that would be really really helpful.
