Putting together a Video Editing PC
I headed over to tigerdirect.ca and started putting together a dream computer to buy. It turned out to be just 1200$. We were thinking of buying a MAC for video editing because of final cut but then thought about putting 'Hackintosh' on a pimped out pc. hah. I have never put together a pc from scratch before but i dont think it should be that hard. I need to get some tips on how to put one together and if this list of parts is compatible together....Also if i have all the parts that i need.
Case ULT31824 :: Ultra Black Aluminus ATX Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB, Firewire and Audio Ports (30 lbs)
