i only added the blu ray player so that when we do go high def we can have enough powersupply. i did not add the blu ray burner to the list of items to buy.
dual monitors is a must beause most of us can't even imagine not having two after having two for a long time it is really hard to go back to one so i think the dual 20" monitors will be great. i think we have a 32" LCD tv in the overall budget sometime this year and i was told not to worry about that yet. we have PLENTY of projectors we don't need any more of those were out of storage space as it is after replacing all the classroom TV's with projectors.
you don't get a performance drop using 32 bit applications on a 64 bit OS atleast not in my experience the have been even faster than on a 32 bit OS including the editing software i know for sure that it runs faster on a 64 bit system from experience. Plus you get the advantage of the ability for addressing large amounts of memory without having to change software (we have decided to stay with Adobe premier pro 2.0 untill we get the high def cameras later in the year)
