    Default How well equipped am i?

    I'm running on an HP DV5000 Notebook

    With:
    - AMD Turion 64 2.00 GHz Processor
    - 2 GB RAM
    - 120 GB Harddrive
    - CD/DVD RW+ Lightscibe Drive
    - Windows XP Media Center Edition
    - 14" Widescreen Display ( I think it's 14)
    - ATI Radeon Xpress 200M

    It's a great computer, i cant complain, it's completed every task i've set it to tremendously.

    Just wondering what yall think of my setup.

    Thanks!

    I think you will be able to video edit on it but it will clunky and renders will be slow.

    I can agree with that.

    I've got a 2.59Ghz Intel Celeron with 768mb ram and I rendered a 4 second video clip using EffectsLab pro and it took 20minutes.

    Welcome to the board Nick.

    A celeron is a bit pushed for most video stuff - you would be well advised to upgrade if you can.

    You would get a useful performance increase for video work by upgrading.

    I dont mean to be presumptuous but if you are strapped for cash there always s/h bargains to be had - something like fast sh p4 / amd would do the trick.

    They may not clock much faster but I am pretty sure the number crunching speed on celerons isnt that good.
