So, I find myself with some gig money and some Christmas money, and a new video editing software that will do exactly what I want, but an antiquated computer that won't allow me to do it very well. I was trying to run the software on my laptop, which is a newer machine, and faster, more powerful than my desktop, but it still goes very slowly and makes working with the video a bitch. So, I was thinking about upgrading my desktop. Right now it's a 2.6 ghz Pentium 4 with 1.5gb of RAM. I was thinking about upgrading the motherboard and CPU to something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121458 Getting this RAM package: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820145315 I already have the power supply, hard disc, DVD writer, etc. I also think I have a seperate firewire card, though I may have to buy one of those too. The ones on my current PC are the multi-card things...I don't know if I'll be able to use those or not. So, I've never done anything this in-depth with rebuilding a PC before. I mean, I've added PCI cards, swapped hard drives, and changed/added memory. Anything I really need to be aware of before I spend $400+ on my computer?
