    By 152MB I'm guessing you mean 512MB

    As for whether it's good enough for editing, you could probably get better performance by doubling your RAM.

    Also, the more hard drive space the better - how much do you have now?

    You'll also always get better performance if you have a seperate hard drive (not just a seperate partition) dedicated to your video files too.

    Sounds fine to me. I suggest adding another monitor and as said lots of drive space, but dont use a USB one if it is external, use f wire.

    Or, in your case, twelve or fourteen monitors

    Ha, well I am just scraping by with 5 and a TV to monitor on at present. I reckon 8 would be ace, but unless they were all tfts they would implode due to the warping of space and use about 2 Kw of leccy, but if they were tfts I would have to sell my house to buy them. Working with lots of monitors helps me get 'in the zone', my pc multi tasks so why not me (or you)?

    Seriously tho I found adding a second monitor made editing much nicer, I just didnt know when to stop.

    Default Thanks for your input.

    Cool i am going to look around for more Ram.

    But better performance, what does that mean. IS that mean better picture quality or just edditing faster?

    I have 120G memory on that but yeah, I need more hard drive.

    Thanks

    Same quality but on a faster computer rendering is faster and you encounter less 'glitchiness' when editing. If your drive has lots of spece it is plenty big enough to be going on with.
