New DV editing computer suggestions needed
on Jul 21, 2005 at 9:38:09 pm

I have found a deal on a Dell Dimension XPS Gen 5. This will be used primarily for DV editing. I have several choices and would like your input:

- Pentium 4 processor 640 with HT (3.2 GHz, 800 FSB) or Pentium D processor 830 with Dual Core Technology (3 GHz, 800 FSB) for $35 more? (should I still avoid Dual Core?)

- Windows XP Media Center or XP pro?

- 1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz-2DIMMs or 1GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz-2DIMMs for $21 more?

- 160GB SATA (7200 RMP)or the larger 250GB SATA (7200 RMP)$56 more, a faster 80GB SATA (10,00 RMP) $49 more.

- Or dual drives (I already have a 160GB external drive I use for video now) 160GB Performance RAID 0 (2 x 80GB /10000 RPM SATA HDDs) add $168 or 160GB Data Security RAID 1 (2 x 160GB SATA HDDs w/ Native Command Queuing) add $84 or 320GB Performance RAID 0 (2 x 160GB SATA HDDs w/ Native Command Queuing) add $84?

- 24 inch UltraSharpâ„¢ 2405FPW Widescreen Digital Flat Panel add $706 or dual monitors (2) 19 inch Ultrasharpâ„¢ 1905FP Digital Flat Panel add $677?

Anything else I should be concerned with?

Thanks for your input,
David
