I'm building an Avid express pro comp for a friend. I'm a audio guy and have build many audio computers so I kind know what I'm doing. I think I want a Asus pc-dl motherboard and dual xeon in the speed of 2.8. Also, I was thinking of a MATROX Parhelia Video Card. Can anyone recommend a better, maybe less expensive video card that will work well with avid express pro? I would also like to hear what everyone thinks of the motherboard. Basically, what would you build that is in this area of computers and price? Thanks for all the help.
the parhelia WAS a great choice with Xpress DV. Witht he release of Xpress Pro Avid added real-time 3D transitions that require an nVidia based card for best results. With Xpress pro we strongly recommend stepping up to a Quadro based grpahics card. The openGL in these cards is superb and Avid enginering keeps finding new ways to take advantage of it.
