    Default Upgrade needed


    Need advice concerning my pc that I have.

    Current rig is:
    Q6600 2.40 Quad Core
    3 GB Ram
    Geforce 295
    Integrated Soundcard

    Software that I use is Pinnacle Studio 14 but when editing or playing back the edited movie it goes at a snails pace. (SD video is ok but HD video not)

    Can anyone give me any suggestions what I need to upgrade or advice for a new pc with the specs.

    Thanks in advance,

    Have you considered it may not be the hardware ? I'm not saying it's Pinnacle but you may not have your system running at it's most optimum. When did you last do a defrag ? How full is your HD (hard drive) ?

    The only hardware thing I would look at is your hard drives. You haven't mentioned what set up you have. Are they fast enough ? Do you have your OS on a different HD to the footage you are playing.

    These are just a few things to consider before you go out and get a new PC.
