I'm looking into building/buying a computer that would be used exclusively for dvd creation and video restoration. If possible, I would appreciate it if LS, as well as others would post an (extensive) list of everything (hardware & software-wise), that one would need to buy to get a great start in this aspect of "this thing of ours". I think LS has posted similar lists before, but it would be nice to have one posted here and added as a sticky, that way it's easily accessible for myself as well as anyone else interested in this side of the hobby.
Also, could you also post the approximate cost of everything that will be needed?
I'm also open to having someone else possibly build this computer for me, (which I'd pay for, of corse), e-mail me with pertinent info. if anyone is interested.
