Hi Guys. I'm in the market for a brand new Desktop. I'm looking for something that is future proof for Blu Ray burners and a nice gaming machine. I want something i can upgrade myself and it needs to be compatible with CAP DVHS and NERO....as those 2 programs get used each day along with HDDVDTOMPEG. Im told Vista might have issues with the above software. Im looking for a machine that will give me the best speed and power for under 2 grand Also is it possible to get a low energy pc so it doesn't use massive amounts of electricity ? I do a huge amount of video editing of HI DEF video capped from Local Channels. I also need the machine to play x264 PAL HD What do you guys think.? First off should i be looking at AMD 64 OR INTEL CORE DUO ? I asked this question 5 months ago and someone said i should wait until the summer for some new graphic cards that are coming out.
