What would you put in your "dream" PC? What would be your hardware? I'm not trying to start an Apple vs PC debate. I really want to know about your requirements for an editing PC. I'm about to either buy one of the shelf or build one. I'm not an IT geek but I can hold my own with electronic hardware. (I worked as a Motorola repair tech in a previous life.) I have been using my Laptop for editing for the last few years and it has done "OK" but I really want to take my work to another level. It has become painfully obvious that I need more computing power and a PC with a dedicated graphics card appears to be a must. Thanks for the input and help.
