OK, I'm looking at getting a nice new PC soon. I intend to have one of those jolly old Matrox RT.X100 real-time cards put in it. My dilemma is that with the announcement from Adobe of Premier Pro 1.5 being a month (or so) away, should I wait so that the system has v1.5 bundled in and, more importantly pre-configured with the hardware, or should I buy now getting Pro V1 (sounds like a golf ball - ed!) pre-configured and going through the necessary freebie upgrades when all s/w and drivers are released.
Is configuring an RT.X100 with Premiere Pro a difficult experience? or is it just plug-and-pray? Anyone bought one independently and done the config themselves with a story to tell?
Adobe claim the new s/w will be shipping end of May. Allow some time for Matrox to start bundling the new versions with the card (drivers currently in beta apparently) and allow a little more time for manufacturers to have it all pre-configured into the latest boxes and I might end up waiting a few months maybe.
