Help with a new build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking to build/buy a rig for my church as they are way past needing it. What I would like the computer to be able to do is:
  1. Support 3 monitors 1 will be for a projector and the other 2 actual monitors
  2. Be able to handle video capture ( already have a capture card though can't remember which one)
  3. Be able to handle light video and audio editing. I think adobe cs5 (maybe 4) was donated and will probably use this
  4. I only have a budget of around $300-$400

The computer won't really be used much except for on Sundays and for the most part will be off the rest of the week. I really want to put something together for them as we currently have a computer that is old enough that the CMOS battery has died twice. It doesn't need to be a power house by any means. When I say light video and audio editing I mean 1 video track and 1 audio track with potentially removing portions of both. The "fanciest" thing we might do is a split small spit screen portion to show a slide along side the video but could always just fade out the video and show the slide for a minute. I appreciate any and all help.

1. What is the input on the projector?

2. What is your level of linux knowledge? If you can cut Windows out you'll save a big chunk of change and a distro like Ubuntu Studio will probably more than handle your light video and audio editing needs.

I would suggest trying an APU. They are cheap and should support multiple monitors if you're only doing simple stuff. I'm not sure if they work with any capture tools, though. And also I'm not sure how you're going to get multiple outputs. You might need a simple supporting card.

It'll be hard to fit it into a $300-$400 budget, for sure.
