Not sure if this is the place for this post but here goes anyway:
I am in the process of having a pc. built up for the purpose of hd editing.
The following specs. were considered as i was going to purchase cyberlink power director 8, but after following that forum for a month and reading all the problems i looked for other nle software and stumbled across this forum.
It would seem from what i have read that vegas 9 is a stable program with regards to AVCHD editing.
The camcorder i am using is a canon HF 200, recording in MXP mode (24mbps) with a frame rate set at 50i.
Herewith my to be computer specs:
Coolermaster 650W PSU, eXtreme Power Plus, 24pin, Dual 12V Rail, 3xSATA, 2x6pin PCI-E,1x120mm Fan - Intelligent Fan Speed Control

Now my question is will i be able to edit and render native footage with vegas 9?
I am not to concerned bout capturing directly to vegas as i would rather save to hdd and then import the mts files.
