    Back w/ Avid (New Build)

    Havent edited since 2011, so far had the hardest time being stop on the sync page to post something here so I gave up and made a new email.  And the new install workaround.  Makes me understand why I havent been behind a computer for so long, haha.

    Anyways, I live in a very small town now and picked up a lot of the media related duties here and would like to start re investing in a nice suite again.  I don't have much of a budget but I'm curious what processor and graphics card combo they are using these days for a under 2000.  Im between an amd or intel i9 right now, but not sure which Quadro cards would best suit me.

    My main interest is media composer on this.  Nothing Pro Tools anymore.  And I still shoot 1080p.  Codecs are something I need to relearn again.

    Welcome back!

    A little way down that page is a link that says 'Windows CPU Specifications 2022.5.pdf'. If you click on it you'll get a big list of all the computers & configurations that Avid guarantees will work with Media Composer. I'd start there.

    Media Composer 2022.4 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Z-Book G6 17", i7-9850H 2.60GHz, 32gb RAM, NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000, Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini... [view my complete system specs]
