Sorry about double post but i wasnt sure where to post this.
hey all i'm upgrading my PC, atm i'm running prem pro 2 with no probs ( truthfully ) editing SD DV video. though i will be ugrading my cpu, ram and video card soon ( once the funds come in lol) Heres the current specs:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-8pe667 PRO
CPU: P4 2.4
Video card: 128 Radeon 9000 Pro AGP
Firewire IEEE1394 for SD DV capture
What i will be upgrading to:
Mobo: same as above, i am keeping the same mobo so the graphics card with HAVE to be AGP, not PCI-E.
RAM: 2Ghz (Max supported by Mobo)
CPU: P4 3.06 (Max supported by Mobo)
Video card: Now this will be a toss up between the :
ATI Radeon X1950 PRO Turbo 512MB AGP
Nvidia 7800 GS 512 MB AGP
Both cards come in 256MB and 512MB variants, with video editing would i notice the difference with the 512 over the 256 ? is it worth it ? i am upgrading the cpu and ram regardless but i thought i would ask the expert on the video card.
With the following upgrades what can i expect, a big jump ? noticable redering/video saving times ??
Be kind i'm a newb ( this is a hobby pc, and will not be for pro editing )
Thanks regards Marty.
