I have read a couple places that it is not how much ram you have but how it is configured. I am new to computers and editing - but very interested - and was wondering if someone could elaborate in laymans terms so i may understand this concept.
Also-When I am burning a dvd my computer seems to slow down a lot, is this due to the RAM - should i get more - or is it to do with something else like the dvd burner or the processor.
I plan to do quite a bit of editing - right now i am editng a 2.5hr long video and would like to uprgrade my computer to get the best performance i can out of it.
Right now the specs for my computer are:
200gb ata hard drive (80gb left right now)
amd athlon 64 processor 3500+ 2.2ghz
ati radeon xpress 200 video
much easier with a computer
