I'm current editing on 1.5 Gigs of Ram, a 2GHz Athlon (not 64) and a GeForce FX 5200 using Sony Vegas. This works but performance can be fairly sluggish at times.
I don't want to buy a new machine and was wondering what the best upgrade would be. I think a new CPU is out of the question as I'd need a new motherboard (current one is Asus A7N8X), and all my RAM slots are full. Therefore, a new Graphics Card (AGP) seems to be the best option and I was wondering which to go for. My budget is around £50 and on another forum someone suggested a GeForce 7.
This looks good:
XFX 7300GT 256MB HDTV D-Sub DVI AGP (XFX 7300GT 256MB HDTV D-Sub DVI AGP)
but I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this card or any other recommendations.
