    QUOTE (Barnaby @ Aug 1 2009, 11:03 AM) Video cards are going to be irrelevant in video editing, unless she uses a program that specifically takes advantage of it. Which is what I suggested. I agree budget is important. But if you are looking for the best system money can buy. You invest in a Quaddro card that allows Adobe Premiere to take advantage of the GPU. If you work with a budget then you make trade-offs, until then don't sacrifice. IMHO. Vampy, is there a price limit?
  5. The biggest issues I have with washable hoses is that they aren't very flexible. Personally I love my KM, and if that was washable I would die. If this is more flexible let us know.

    QUOTE (russianwizard @ Jul 31 2009, 02:59 PM) lol I've used gskill for 4 years now and had nothing but troubles, even with extensive overclocking. While nvidia has the superior chipsets, A teacher of mine had a serious video editing rig (quad core, lot of ram etc.) and he had an 8600gs and he was able to render video as quick as the dell machine at my school with dual top of the nvidia workstation cards. ATI drivers are great in windows, and shes not going to be using Linux or mac so it's not that big of a deal if ati lacks support for those 2 oses. All in all you don't need a $300 video card to render video, it's more of a cpu job. Yes the video card helps, but It isn't worth the giant price increase. I am too qualified in the field of IT, I have my A+ and Net+. Not as good as a degree, but I am about to head into college. So don't judge me too quick buddy. I agree that most part video rendering is not GPU intensive. However, nVidia changes that with their Quadro Line!! nVidia allows certain things to run on the GPU, which is significantly faster than most CPUs. If I was gonna through caution to the wind I would buy the graphics card below. Additionally I would read the nVidia article I have attached to see exactly what they are doing. The downside, the card costs more, you have to pay for a plugin to enable it, and you won't have as much beer because you will finish work so soon. I mentioned earlier that creating a system for video editing wouldn't be cheap. I stand by that and still recommend a good video card. I would probably swap out my previous recommendation for video card for this one, even though it is $150 more. You get what you pay for. You buy a crappy chinese hookah, you know what you are getting. You get a KM, Mya, or MZ you also know what you are getting. The same applies here, you can spend the extra money and in the end save time and money. Or you can skimp now, regret it later, and end up paying for it in the end. http://www.nvidia.com/object/builtforadobepros.html http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814133272 http://www.nvidia.com/object/builtforadobepros_plugins.html <- Plugin for $250

    QUOTE (russianwizard @ Jul 30 2009, 02:38 PM) You don't need a 10k rpm hard drive. It will only in decrease boot and load times by a few seconds. If you want to go all out and get the best performance / redundancy get 2 identical drives and do a raid 1. (both drives are mirroring each other.) That way if one drive fails you just buy another and your set You will also get a way better performance boost that any 10k rpm drive can offer. (Keep in mind that this is totally optional and it isn't needed for standard home use.) Also don't go with crucial memory because my friend who owned a quad had 2 sticks die on him, I recommend OCZ, Gskill, Mushkin, Corsair, Patriot or Kingston. You also don't need a top of the line nvidia or ati card. This will play most games on full settings: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814150337 and it's only $90! The reason I recommend getting a cheaper card is this. Xmas 2007 I bought the ati 3870 for $230 and a year later it was worth around $60. Spend >$100 on a video card, because the higher ups are only good of you want to play Crysis on super high settings. First of all a 10K hard drive will help with normal operations. If you know how memory works and how your OS uses page files you know that having a 10K hard drive cuts down transfer time like none other. Secondly I agree that raid 1 is good for redundancy and that it would be a good choice for non system disks, however it does not improve performance (imagine if you had to write everything down twice, would you be faster? neither is a computer). If you are working with raw video you can easily hit well over whatever memory your system has, even 8GB, so you are going to have alot of page swaps, you should do your best to improve those transfer times, a 10K will do that. Keep in mind this is not typical home use, we are talking about serious video editing, which brings up your choice in video card. nVidia makes better video card chipsets, period. Both there core clocks and memory clocks beat ATI's. The beautiful thing about nVidia is that there are almost daily driver updates (I am not exaggerating) AND there drivers are open source so that you aren't limited to Windows. I won't deny that you can use ATI video cards with Linux/Mac, but you are looking a unsupported features and degradation in performance because ATI doesn't make the driver public. As far as memory, I've never had issues with Crucial. Sucks for your friend. However I would stay FAR away from Gskill, Mushkin, and Patriot. They are relatively new and are lower quality IMHO. Of course hardware goes down in price as time goes on. But if you are setting up a video editing computer/studio, don't be cheap. You don't want your system to lock up on you while you render 30 seconds of video to see if everything is right. And you certainly don't want to wait an afternoon for your 30minute clip to render. Sorry to come on strong but you sound like you don't fully know what you are talking about. I will be completely upfront about my credentials. I am a Computer Engineer graduated from Georgia Tech.

  10. Big boobs are great as long as they are proportional and the girl makes them look good. I give examples when small boobs don't look good, I can do the same for big boobs. My member works fine so, I am happy. Though I will say size has to matter. If a guy is not big enough to penetrate and hit the G-Spot, is the girl gonna have fun? Also, if it is too big, he is going to have to .... resist a full thrust and that doesn't sound like fun. Fake or real don't matter unless you can tell. A 5ft girl doesn't ever have DD unless she is as tall as she is wide. I could show you fake boobs that you couldn't tell were fake. It's all about not going to the extreme.
  11. It says the game has ended. Does anyone have a link? FSU can you send me an invite, I sent my email to you a while back.

    For doing video you want to have a good video card. It will make everything better. Assuming you compress the video for distribution, you will want a good processor as video compressor is memory heavy. Maybe two in SLI? I would use Vista 64bit and I probably would do ultimate, I personally would steal it. If you are producing something commercially, buy it. Additionally I would get about 8GB of ram (not joking). If you think about it you are working with giant files from your hard disk (all SATA), you don't want all of your video to be waiting in pagefiles on your HD you want them in memory (memory is the fastest). You also want to look at memory latency and minimize that. As far as PSU, it really is up to you. Antec is good. You probably need to look at 550W+. Motherboard, you want something with a high FSB. Some things I would look at if I were you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813131282 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820148304 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822136322 <- Fastest consumer lelel HD on market, could be useful for system disk, thats what I use http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130483 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130479 Pricey. But if you are really gonna start this you should start it right.

The only reason its not washable is because it can rust on the inside, so as with anything that can rust, just make sure to get it dry. Or just get a washable hose EDIT: If you want a washable Mya hose, this is my next purchase: http://www.hookah-shisha.com/store/pc/conf...;idproduct=5120 Why do you think that's washable? pretty sure its not lol Pretty sure it is considering its inner core is made of a plastic like the Razan, and Nammor hoses Its Myas version more or less, with the awesome wide handle tip that i loved so much. maybe im wrong then my bad i just thought it wasnt, NVM!!! dont mind me lol EL, have you used this one? It is washable? Is the hose stiff like Nammor/Razans?
