What do you think about my new editing rig?


Jun 13, 2009
I do heavy HDV editing for films, documentary and sports. Bought everything last week. Case came, the rest is on its way via UPS.

Apevia X-Jupiter G-Type case
Intel Core i7 920
ASUS P6T Dv2 mobo
Corsair XMS3 DDR3 PC12800 1600Mhz (12GB)
Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB hard drive x 3 (I don't raid)
Pioneer 203 Blu-Ray burner
EVGA GeForce GTX 260 scc video card
Creative X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty pro sound card
Corsair 750w PSU
Thermaltake Cyclo HDD fans x 3
Logitech MX3200 board/mouse
Logitech X-540 Speakers
Running Vista Ultimate 64

This rig is replacing my 5 year old 3.4Ghz P4, ASUS P5AD2-E mobo, 3GB of ultra RAM, Radeon X850 plat video card (and the rest of the normal PC components).

And I'm moving up from Pinnacle Studio to Sony Vegas Pro 9.

Any thoughts about the expected differences between the two PCs as far as performance?
