      Hi I just bought a dell precision T-3500 workstation. It has a xeon 6 core 2.67 ghz (xeon x5650) processor, 12 gb ram (6×2) and a Nvidia quadro 4000 card (2048mb of dedicated video memory) according to my research this computer should be able to handle basic 1080 HD video editing.  but i am running Magix movie edit pro 2014 on it and it is glitching bad.  It only has a 130 gb hard drive on it, does that matter? I have an external hard drive too so its not like the on board memory is low.  Any idea why I'm still having trouble?

      The only things that should be on your 130 GB. drive are your programs. Everything else should be on another internal or external drive.

      Is your external drive running at USB 3.0? I regularly edit HD video with Sony Vegas Pro 12 using external drives and never have any problems.

      Hey Kelvar20, I agree with rs170a above…all your project files…video , music, jpeg's, graphics etc should be on an external drive or a secondary drive installed inside the Dell workstation.   Specification wise, that hexa core processor with that amount of memory should be more than adequate for editing HD video.     -Wayne
