Hey! I've got some cash and looking at upgrading my system. I mainly use Premiere Pro and After Effects for doing freelance VFX and video editing, but my system's been recently struggling (i7 950, 12GB corsair dominator) gigabyte ex-58, quadro fx 1700). My works getting more complex and my turn overs are getting longer.
I've done some research and was going along the lines of either the i7 980x or getting dual xeon 5620's (any better suggestions?). Also looking at getting a new graphic card, preferbally the nvidia quadro CX (any other suggestions?). I've got around 6k to work with (I'm in Australia so that might translate as more/less currency than other countries charge for parts).
But I'm not totally sure what I need. I use alot of 3D applications in AE (trapcode, Zaxwerks) and edit a lot of HD video. Looking at faster rendering times, and able to work in AE in real time (takes ages for RAM previews and always working on a quarter reso). I need Creative Cow help on any suggestions on what I should be looking into for upgrades to make my life a little easier. Cheers =)
