I have just started building a pc for the puposes of video editing, and so far have abit kt7a mobo, duron 800, 256mb, 14gb ata/66 hd.

I know I need a larger hard disk and will look to overclock the Duron but what I really need to know is what DV card to go with ? For instance the Pinnacle DV Studio Plus is geared towards beginners, but is the DV200 that much more advanced and worth the additional cost, bearing in mind I am just begining ?

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have replied to this in another forum,

If you are on a limited budget check out the classifieds,
Someone selling an "as new" pyro DV Pro which comes with full version of Media Studio pro V6, with manuals and extra,s for around £140.

Also if you either back order or already have the last few editions of Computer Video Magazine, you will note they have been providing some great "how to" steps on this software.

Regards

Stuart.

Hi again,

One further question, why overclock your chip?
If you,ve ever seen a "fried" motherboard you would,nt bother.

If you overclock it make sure you put a fan on it the size of a dustbin lid, prey that you dont damage around the chip and expect to be broke when it meltsdown.

And dont forget the ear defenders,

Good news though when you upgrade your hard drive dont throw it away use it as the boot drive and the new one as storage drive.

regards

stuart.
