You won’t see a dramatic improvement until Operating Systems and Programs are 64 bit. They already have Windows XP x64 edition, which is 64 bit, and I believe the only 64 bit editing program is Vegas 6 (?). Next year, Microsoft will release the Longhorn operating system which has 100% 64 bit support.
Btw, I use a single Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz, no hyper-threading, and it’s fast enough. I don’t plan on going 64 bit in the near future. Instead, I’m planning my next system around dual Intel Xeon 3.06 GHz processors. I believe that two Xeons are much faster than any single 64 bit processor. But that’s just my opinion 😀
Good luck with your new system!!
