Please advise on the system I am planning for CS4
on Oct 13, 2008 at 7:47:01 pm

I am researching the following components to build a workstation for working with Adobe Creative Suite Production 4

I have selected an Antec P180 ATX mid tower case

Processor:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Quad-Core Processor, 2.66 GHz, 12M L2 Cache, 1333MHz FSB, LGA775

Motherboard:
Intel DX48BT2 Extreme Series X48 Desktop Board, ATX, DDR3 1600, 3xPCIe x16, 1600MHz FSB, LGA775,

Hard drive(s):
Seagate Baracuda Sata 300 drive for my applications

Drive two: another Sata drive (likely 500 gigs) for media storage with a plan to upgrade to Sata raid when I get into HD editing.

Memory:
OCZ Platinum 4 gig DDR3 memory

Power:
Corsair 750 Tx 750 watt power supply

Cooling:
Two fans and perhaps a processor fan if recommended.

Graphics:
Initially I will have an Nvidia Quadro fx540 graphics card with plans to upgrade to Nvidia Quadro 1700 for HD, HDV editing

Operating System:
Running Windows XP professional for now

Feedback/comments appreciated.

Hi

Very good choice but I'd recomend a Vista x64 instead, since CS4 will compatible with 64 bit. If you plan to upgrade the video card would be better to invest in a 3700 IMO.

By Vista 64 do you mean Windows Vista or are you talking about a series of Motherboard?
