    I believe you can ask your question right here. You perform video editing so
    is this a hobby or do concentrate of heavy professional work like for a
    business? If your budget has no limits then the FX-51 is what you need as
    well as the best video card you can purchase. You should beef up to the
    maximum amount of DDR ram your new system can handle to render images much
    more quickly and reduce hard drive lag time. The AMD 64 and FX 51 are both
    great CPUs so either choice is fine as long as the surrounding components
    are of equal quality. However, I'm just a hobbyist and know a few
    professionals and this seems to be their choice for home editing. There's
    really good feedback here in this newsgroup so pay close attention to them.

    I do not want to be OT on this list so is there a newsgroup where I can
    ask about the best combo of amd motherboard and cpu to build my own
    system for video editing?

    I have a 1.2 tbird which, thanks to your help, I understand I can
    upgrade to 2.4, but after some thought, feel the mb is limited and would
    rather build my own so it will take advantage of the amd 64 as well as
    other new tech.

    Or should I just ask here?

    While this reads as a .thunderbird group, it pretty muchs covers all
    AMD cpu's and MB's. So ask away. be aware there's not a lot of people with
    A64's yet though. To find out which cpu would be better for video editing
    you should chack some sites that benchmark these programs. Almost all of
    them do.
