I'm looking to build a desktop PC for $1,000-1,500 (or more if needed) to edit HD video from DSLRs in real time. What hardware specs will I need to make this happen?
What parts (graphics card, processor, RAM, solid state drive) should I put the most money into?
For $1,485 on ibuypower.com I can get:
Intel i7 4930K Processor (6x 3.40GHz/12MB L3 Cache) - Intel Core i7 4930K
16 GB RAM
AMD Radeon HD 7750 2GB
Dual 1TB Drives 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s (2TB Capacity) - RAID 0
Please feel free to share your specs, as seeing working examples would be very helpful.
