go to the Adobe forums and post this.

1) no Dell or HP.

2) unless you are buying Dual Xeons 2.93 or higher 12 core

you are far better off with a SINGLE 980x.
you dont mention your format so its hard to tell you.
AVCHD/XDCam/Red all need 2 sets raid 0 or higher. (especially Red)

minimum for CS5 is 12 gig with 24 gig being ideal DDR3 1600 is a better option.

Hi Jcschild

It's (Sony) XDCamera. using SXS mem cards

Why u say NO for Dell & HP. I have been using Dell since 1995. THere after sales service was very good for me in the past.

What do u think about the RAID 5 system with 3 600GB SAS HDD?

Thx for ur input for my qury.
