Video Editing Do I need to upgrade?

I have a gateway 1300 performer/windows xp pro/1152 pc800rd ram ATI Radeon 1300x AGP video card and I reciently purchaced sony vegas movie studeo+dvd 8 platinum edition to use with my sony hdv1 video camera.  The software seems to work but previewing and rendering seems to drag and is not usable.  The requirements call for an 800 mh to a 2.8 gh processor with a 2.8 gh processor recomended for hdv.  I think I need to upgrade the motherboard and processor.  Gateway told me I have a ATX motherboard.  Do you have any suggestions for upgrades using what I already have or what is your best advice.  I have done some minor upgrades or will this be over my head?

    Gunhoe,

    Thanks this is what I'm finding out. It indicates it needs a 2.8 processor for HDV. I've located a 2.2 processor laptop but I'm unsure if it will work properly so I'm still looking what is your thought on the 2.2 laptop? Thanks, Brad

Get a new system... Sorry if this isn't what you want to here but RD-ram is stupidly expensive. 512mb of RD-ram is usually a few hundred dollars and hard to find. Since you have RD-ram that means you also have a Pentium 4 processor, probably in the range of 1.2 -1.8 Ghz

Vegas is a great video editing program but it needs way more than speed that that to render a video (in a decent amount of time. it will render on a slower processor, it will just take forever!). You will be much happier of the results if you just replace the computer rather than try to upgrade it.

    Do you know the name of the processor in it? Or if you give me the model I can look it up. Vegas can use dual processor machines, and I betting the 2.8 Ghz is talking about a Pentium 4 processor.
    Newer processors like the Core Duo and Core 2 Duo actually run at a slower Ghz speed but can do more work at the same time!

    Overall the video will probably render faster on the laptop! Also always have it plugged in when trying to render as laptops tend to slow themselves down when running on battery power.

Looking to upgrade my graphic card one last time. Currently running a RADEON X850 AGP 8x. Dell XPS, 3 GHz Pent4 w/875P chipset.(800MHz Bus Clock, 400MHz DDR, Hyper-threaded (2)-- I would like the highest...


I wouldnt know whether you just like ATI Graphics cards, or it was recommended for you. But I would still give you my straight forward advice, and this is : Go for NVIDIA Ge-FORCE graphics cards. Trust me, you would thank me for it later.
I didnt want to recommend a specific model for you though, because of our difference in country locations, but just try and get a high memory (like 256MB and above), NVidia Graphics card that is compatible with your system. Also check out the available slot on your system that you will use for it first before you go (So that you wont go and get an AGP slot card when you have just an open PCI Slot). I'm telling you this because I've used A LOT of graphics cards also (Over 10 years now)! and I've come to that conclusion that NVIDIA makes the best graphics card.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

Screen going blank for a second or two while video freezes then jumps.


If you have on board graphics try removing video card and reboot when computer rebooted turn it of and refit card and restart when restarted computer should recognize new hard ware and should find the already installed drivers if not try installing drivers again
Sometimes windows does not recognize new hardware until its refitted
had this problem with modems alot and the above method solved it
