Is this huge amount of video in high-def or normal? If normal-def, I would think 1 or 2 GB of system RAM would be plenty, and 256 MB on a PCI-E video card would work fine. Use 2 SATA hard drives, so you can keep your video files on a seperate drive from everything else. That way, when accessing a video file, you won’t be interrupted by the system accessing files that have nothing to do with your video activities.
There are external hard drive systems available, which connect by USB. I’ve read that their access times are too slow for video work.
My 3 cents worth. 🙂
