I want to have a PC system solely dedicated to DV. All other programs will be on another PC. Before I purchase hardware, I would be pleased to receive ideas from members as to what is best in the way of motherboard, CPU, and graphics card*. I will be installing a 60Gb/7200 hard drive and DVD/CD writer combo. I am using Studio 8 with Windows ME, initially burning to VCD and later when prices adjust to a DVD writer. *I do have a Matrox G450 dual head graphics card, is this really necessary for video editing? I hope you can help me.
