PC for video editing

  Gaz W 21:43 28 Oct 06


I'm looking to build a PC for video editing. I have an idea of the kind of spec I need for this, but what I'm after are loads of connections on it. I know a lot of graphics cards out there have VIVO (video in, video out) capability, but what I'm looking for is these connections to go on the front of a PC case. More than likely this will require a 3.5" or 5.25" drive bay, but so far I've been unable to find what I'm looking for.

The connections I need on the front (ideally) are:

RCA (L & R audio and composite video connections)
FireWire (not too much of a problem)

Also, the usual 3.5mm audio jacks and USB 2.0 ports, etc.

The only thing I've seen that comes close is at click here but this is too much messing about and involves running cables out of the back to the front.

Any good ideas?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Definitely getting there, but how do I connect these?

Ideally, I don't want to actually use the ports at the back and run cables through to the front. What I'm looking to achieve is something like this:

It's got to be possible because these PCs use standard bits, just HP's own case.

I might take a look inside one, since I work at PC World so I can see how they connect tomorrow. Still doesn't explain how I get one though!

Anyway, if that's any help, it's what I need to get hold of somehow!

Thanks again for your suggestions.

Think I've found something...

Unfortunately, the review here wasn't great, and I can't seem to find any UK suppliers for it. But, something like this is what I'm looking for I guess.
