    Default Adobe 1.5 and old Matrox under Windows 7?

    My desktop died so I'm replacing it but need to carry on using the old video kit and software:
    Canon MV630i (mini DV) camcorder with Premiere Pro 1.5, Audition 1.5 and Encore 1.5.
    Video capture was done with a Matrox RT.X10 card.
    I know, I know - it's all old stuff but I can't afford to upgrade the computer and the kit.

    I'm looking at Core i5, 8Gb RAM and two 500Gb SATA hard discs.

    Will my old Adobe software run under Windows 7?
    Is the Matrox card any use now?
    Recommendations?
    Thanks.

    I am running Adobe Audition on Windows 7 and the only thing that happens is that Windows changes the color scheme from whatever 7 likes to more what it looks like on XP. 1.5 is a very robust audio editor for almost anything except super multitrack band work! Most radio stations I've work with still use it and like it, as "they got it right the first time" for radio station audio production.

    I suspect Premiere 1.5 will run.
    Best to check Matrox's site for compatability (and drivers) with W7. I suspect not.

    Thanks, chaps.
    I've decided to stay with Windows XP Pro that was on the old computer.
    It won't support more than 3Gb RAM but at least my software and capture card will work.
    Onwards and upwards,
