There are just so many choices, I was hoping to get some advice here, from those that would know better than I would. My current card is an OLD 3DFx Banshee w/16mb ram.
The rest of my system consists of an Asus P4C800E Deluxe MB, 1 GB ram, P4 2.8 GHZ (Overclocked and running fine at 3.08 GHZ). Samsung SyncMaster 710N LCS monitor, 3-80 Gig WD drives and 1-200 Gig WD SATA drive, all in an Antec Sonata case
I recenty bought Pinnacle Studio 9, so I'll more than likely stick with that, at least for a while. My CD/DVD burners are an External Plextor PX-708-UF and internal HP dvd640i. I also am using a Canopus ADVC-100, since my video is being captured from an older (non DV) camcorder. A Sony TRV-65
I have been having crashes while trying to edit a 60 min video in Studio 9, and I'm pretty sure my antique video card is to blame. I'd like to keep the cost of a new card under $250, but looking on places like newegg.com, there are just so many choices. Any helps/tips would be greatly appreciated
