The system will be used for video editing with Premiere Pro 2.0, Avid Liquid, Photoshop, After Effects. Also for animation--Autodesk Maya and Poser.

I'm looking at the following--

2- Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor


Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2B

2- Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular
Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard
Drive - OEM

1- Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3250824AS 250GB 7200 RPM
SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM (System drive)

ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X
ATX Intel Motherboard

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer
Case

I'm looking at the Nvidia Quatro FX 3450 as my video card--any argument to go with the FX4500.

I know I need a power supply and I'm not sure if this would be the best motherboard. Any recomendations appreciated.
Thanks.

HI,

I'd suggest you to have 4 monitors if you plan to work commercially. They will give you a good view of all the four viewports. Creation, modelling, lighting and editing will be easier in maya if you have 4 monitors. For a power supply, have a separate one and make sure you always have an alternate in case of electricity cut off.
