Optimal configuration for a PC
  

Can anybody suggest a optimal configuration for PC to be mainly used for Pinnacle studio Movie editing, Photo editing with Photoshop and Burning Multiple DVD's with Nero. I store a lot of DVD images.

If price be no consideration. What configuration should I go for. I can assamble my PC myself.

Thanks .

re: Optimal configuration for a PC

First you need a large storage capacity. 2TB would be needed
Second : Solid processing speed if you intend to multitask : Core2Quad or Core i7 if possible.
Third + Fourth 64-bit Operating System so that you can use large memory 8GB would be fine...

Re: Optial configuration for a PC

I would not suggest you to go for intel as cost is high and they have locked down some features in bios which some times good to use asus which supports best to all processor and best for overclock also .
