I'm thinking about building/buying a new PC. I have around a $2500 budget. I want to maximize performance for Premiere, After Effects, and 3D Studio Max. Does anyone have any recommendations for Graphics Cards and other aspects of the build? Do dual graphics cards offer any benefits/drawbacks for working with these programs?
No answer is too basic. Any recommendations to improve or recommendations to buy a systems are greatly appreciated.
Right now this is how I'm leaning if I build.
Core 2 Quad Yorkfield 2.83GHz
ATI Radeon 4870x2 2x512
Asus Xonar DX Sound Card
Windows Vista Home Premium
OCZ Platinum Edition 4GB (2x2GB)
