      Considering a new system, but I’m not too sure of what to get. I have an old Matrox 2000/Premiere system – which is struggling – and need to get more current. I’ve looked at the latest Matrox/Premiere and was curious if anyone had any thoughts or input (relating to stability, up-time, general oomph, etc) as to the system below. I have no experience with any other manufacturers but I’d be happy to hear of your impressions.

      Software Bundle includes:
      Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, Audition and Encore software

      Intel Pentium 4 3.06 GHz Processor

      1GB DDR RAM,

      80GB system drive

      Two 200GB ATA EIDE Drive Array (about 30 hours of video storage)
      Dual Format DVD+/-RW

      Full Tower Case with extra cooling fans

      Windows XP Professional
      Matrox RTX 100

      That looks good. I just bought the Matrox RT.X 100 with software and it’s insanly fast. I have a P4 2.8 Ghz with 512mb RAM and Premiere Pro 1.5 runs great. Just make sure the Matrox card will work with your motherboard’s chipset (it doesn’t work with all chipsets). Matrox’s website has a list of which ones work.

      Rocktooloud – upgrade to 1GB of RAM. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did. With the extra RAM your system will be even more responsive and it’ll be able to handle longer projects effortlessly. 512 is the bare minimum for runniong P Pro.

      yourhuck- Your system looks good. What motherboard are you using? Before you install the RTX100 card, follow the WinXP tweaks on our website http://www.videoguys.com/WinXP.html
