Thanks for keeping the Muvipix store in mind Dave :TU:

For Dell the XPS model is probably the place to start building

also, don't forget about the Dell Outlet
http://www.dell.com/outlet

Lots of really great deals on scratch and dent, refurbished and customer returns.
I have purchased 3 computers from the Outlet and all have been excellent deals and are running great.
Muvipix doesn't have an affiliation with the Dell Outlet but our main goal is that everyone gets the best deal on what they need :)

Jack: Have located a refurbished HP P7-1200 with i5-2400/3.1 GHz; 8GB DDR3(max); chipset Intel H61 Exp; Intel HD2000 graphics controller. 1 TB 7200 sata and would add 128 ssd. Don't know if processor and mother board are sufficient and also 8GB mem enough. Also would I need separate GPU?

Would appreciate any thoughts, Dave

That system should be just fine for PRE/PSE 11 & standard-definition video. The hardware is coming up on 2 years old, so I'd expect to pay around $500 for that system as you listed it.

The HD 2000 graphics supports multiple monitors, but if you plan to use multiple monitors you'll probably need to add in a separate video card for decent playback.

Thanks, Jack. Any suggestions on the video card? Also, I would probably need a bigger power supply as this only has 300W.
