      are you doing HDV or SD work. Your current setup is fine for Vegas, except for storage and capture. I would definitely recommend larger hard drives for capture and rendering since 1 hour of dv or hdv is 13 gigabytes. And make sure you are capturing and rendering to a drive OTHER than your system drive.

      I like Quads… but your system should be good for SD work. I second Johnboy. Get more storage space. It’s so cheap nowadays. I think 500GB is like 129 on http://www.newegg.com.
