You might want to consider 8GB of ram. When editing I usually go into paged file space and I have 4GB.
But isn't it that 32bit supports only 4GB of Ram?
And I don't think Adobe supports 64bit yet.

The 3870 is a good card for video editing, at least from my expirence.
If it is not for gaming, why are you getting a crossfire boad?
I will be working with uncompressed HD in 4:4:4 and also
Cineform (which will require some processor power).

Don't really need the Crossfire nor the SLI..but I need a board with an optical S/PDIF out...so I'm not sure which board to take.

Probably not with the newest HDs.

Photoshop should be supporting 64-bit soon (if not already). Adobe RUNS in 64-bit OS fine though. Optical S/PDIF only supports 2.1 on almost every motherboard. A HD3470 is all the graphical power you should need (I don't think any of your apps need graphical acceleration). That is until NVIDIA starts do video encoding on their video cards.
Once again...

Adobe supports 64bit. I am using Adobe Premiere Pro for all of my work. You will want 64bit.

This is what I think you should get:
Q6600
X38 mobo, maybe something else
2x500GB 7200.11HDs in raid0
HD3870
64bit Vista

Edit: or the P35 board

Awesome! Thanks for all your help.
I have probably read an outdated article that Adobe does not support 64bit.


Then it's definitely 8GB & 64bit.

By the way, why do you recommend ATI cards instead of Nvidia?
Any video acceleration advantage over the other?

From my experience, I found that ATI cards are better for CAD rendering and video work. They are better 'work'. Nvidia cards seem to do better with games. Since ATI cards have all the video encoding done on the card itself, ATI would be the way to go.

Why an expensive X38? A P35 or P45 should be fine.

Why a HD3870? There's no hardware acceleration benefit currently.

You might want to do 2x640GB AAKS plus a 1TB drive for nightly backups.

Because the 3870s are getting quite cheap now. When Im video editing I usually use about 50% of the gpu when watching what I just editing (before its compressed). Thats only 13.8GB/hr for standard def. HD will be huge.

Ummmmm.... I disagree.

The ICH9R onboard RAID controller on the Maximus board is more than capable of handling 4 raptors in a RAID0/RAID5 configuration. Five raptors start to task the controller, and six raptors really is more than that controller can handle. Throughput is still great, however the graphs look horrible. Compare the below to a 2 drive RAID array and then tell me that 2 drives are the max:

4 raptors on a Maximus controller:


6 raptors on the Maximus controller:
