Hi chaps,

I realise there are alot of posts similar to this , but i've been looking at getting a new computer for editing a bit of HD footage and generally having more life of my life back by speeding up render times.

Like everyone I am trying to get the most bang for my buck.

Can anyone see any let downs with this system:

Intel® Core 2 Quad Q8200 <LI class=indentFeature>(2.33GHz, 4MB Cache)
Genuine Windows Vista® Home Premium
4GB DDR2 memory
500GB SATA hard drive (7200rpm)
Intel® GMA X4500 graphics
Dual Layer DVD Rewriter
6x USB and 1x FireWire port
Media card reader

Now I have a computer with 2 core duo 2,33GHZ. Is having the same spec but quad core actually much of an upgrade or not

Cheers for any help
