You might look for a setting related to memory configuration. Windows/CS5 offers some and maybe Vegas does too. I found that on my CS5 Windows machine that changing memory from “performance” to “memory” actually improved performance. Be sure your hard drives’ settings have DMA on and try turning hyperthreading on or off to see if that helps. Finally, check out your video card. Im not sure of the minimum necessary, but I find that video memory around 1GB is good, more may be better.
I have an old Dell dual Xeon 32 bit machine and the biggest speed increase came when I changed from the Dell-supplied video card to a much faster one with more memory.
