video converting/editing build
I need to build a computer capable of super fast video conversion of raw avchd to a burnable format, editing HD video and acting as a server for other pc's which will do the actual DVD burning. My budget is <$1500. An i7 or AMD 6core might do it, I'm not sure which is better for this application. Of course a powerful media/graphics card is key. One important thing is an adequate cooling system as I will be in the field, in the summer, doing most of my work. Any suggestions on parts or system features would be helpful.
