OKay let me help you out here. IM assuming you have no budget since your using avid! Your going to want to do dual xeons because thats going to run programs in windows for video editing a lot better then amd will. Partly because of sheare speed. Dual 3.06, your going to want atleast 1gb of ram 2gb would be better. I reccomend running a scsi 15k rpm hard drive as ur main for windows and software then a 200gb or whattver for your video and files. I would wait till the end of june then dual layer burners are coming out for only about 230 bucks. The video card i would reccomend something will dual dvi it doesnt have to be super great or fast just atleast a 128mb. Give me a price limit and i will find all the parts you will need and post the links. Im a intermediate video editor simply because i have no camera until i get the dvx100a at end of summer but thats okay. Im friends with a lot of people going to LA films schools. I reccomend the Avid mojo Dna hardware to you because it kind of replaces the powerpack and is really nice. Yah but seriously give me a price limit. And check ur pm box please
