    I would appreciate any system recommendations for building a Edius HD system which will be used for Weddings & Events mainly, I want it to be fast and have plenty of HDD with Bluray burner, authoring etc.

    TIA

      Also a lot of people post their specs in their signatures.

        The first place to start is your budget.

        Once that is known we will gladly help you spend your money!

          Edius System Budget $3-$K

          I would want the system rackmountable if not adding alot of cost or not practical.

          TIA

              Are you building it yourself or looking for a turnkey solution?

                Frys would likely build it

                Frys to save money, I wouldn't trust myself to build it and turnkey would be expensive unless you know of someone in L.A. area that isn't high dollar turnkey.

                  As mentioned look at the signatures then go to avadirect.com and price out a system using their configurator. Mine was about $1,500 for high quality componets. Add to that about $750 for Edius 5 with Spark card and $300 for HDTV preview monitor. Already had a computer monitor, amp and speakers.

                    Bobinator, Any luck?

                    I would stick to Intel i7 or Xeon processors, go with 12GB of ram and Windows 7 64bit.

                    Asus motherboards have a good rep with Canopus. But I have used Gigabyte for my last three builds and they have worked fine.

                    Video card is not so crucial, just get a modern decent card.

                    I use an external RAID card hooked up to 4-bay external drive enclosures. This way I only need to turn them on when I am editing and I don't have my case filled to the gills with HDs heating up the place.

                    As far as internal drives, at the core I have an OS drive, a "My Documents" drive, a pagefile/storage drive. I also have a duplicate of each drive, a clone for the OS and synchronized copied of the rest. So if there is an issue, I can swap a drive and keep on running.

                    This is made easier with a hot-swap bay (along with the drives being setup in AHCI mode). I can slide a drive in, backup and slide it back out.

                    You probably already know about this stuff but I am sharing because it does need to be planned for when building a system.

                    Keep us updated.

                      Bobinator,

                      I do not list a rackmount solution in my offerings but it looks like I might be providing STORMDAVE with one in that price range. This will be also delivered to California as that is where he is. So, I could build two and ship one to you.

                      PM me for further details.
