I'm looking for a tower that will work well as a home video editing PC (AVHCD) but also act as a back up server for my laptops and a print server.
I think (but let me know otherwise) that I need minimum dual core 1.6GHz, 2GB ram (with room for more) and approx 1TB hard drive. To minimise hourglassing on the video editing and time to back up, the read/write speed of the hard drive would need to be as fast as poss. Don't really have a budget - would rather get what's right as long as its a good deal.
Not particularly bothered about Bluray disk capability at this time, just DVD RW and will swap in/out once Bluray becomes more viable.
Any suggestions appreciated. No brand preference!
