A friend of mine is looking for a new rig after her Macintosh finally crapped out on her. I convinced her that building a custom machine gets you the most for your money and she asked for help picking out the pieces. She does video editing professionally for a design firm (and also freelance on the side) so it needs to be pretty powerful and able to run some of the heftier artsy programs simultaneously. Think Premiere, Illustrator, Photoshop, etc. This is what I've picked out so far, but if anyone has any pointers or suggestions I would be glad to hear them. pcpartpicker The SSD is one I happen to have lying around, so that's set in stone but the rest is flexible. Thanks!
