HI :)
Just bought a new computer

Intel i7-980 3,3 GHz processor
Sabertooth X58 Motherboard
16 GB DDR3 RAM
Geforce GTX 570 phantom 3 graphics card

But when I have only 2 tracks(no effects,but on top of eachother,and one set to screen) my preview window lacks when i playback. Should't I be able to through a little more at my computer before it lacks?

Or do I need to set something up?

The preview mode is set for auto.

Is it Vegas 11 64bit?...That it can make full use of your
system resources?

So you may want to try 64bit. You can install both versions at the same time I believe. Also not to encourage you to return the computer but they did just release the new ivy bridge processor and that combined with the new motherboards are supposed to give a boost to encoding like a champ. Make sure you video card driver is updated to newest from site. Not sure on this but seems nvidia may be doing better these days with supporting newer technology. Maybe that's just benefiting Adobe Premier, not sure...

I have installed drivers for my video card and the 64 bit version of vegas, but has the same problem, Still lacking?

So I need a little more help.

When I look at my preferences my preview device is set to windows Graphics card, shouldn't it be my Nvidia? But I can't choose it.

Here a some pic of my preferences

Just tried with some other video clips, they play fine.

The one I started with using was a wma. file from the default windows video example folder, and it appers that vegas dont like that.

In your Preview Device Preferences, try unchecking Scale output to fit display. This is causing Vegas Pro to resize every frame before displaying it which takes some resources to do and may decrease your frame rates.

Hey John

I just tried that, but its still lacking, and It's really frustrating to have bought a brand new computer, with lots of house power, and not be able to use it :(

Could I be a codec or something like that i'm missing???

[Allan Boes] "Could I be a codec or something like that i'm missing???"
No, a missing codec would cause the video not to display at all.

What is your source video? Where is it from? What are it's attributes?

My project right now where its lacking is 2 tracks with png seq. one track set to source alpha and the other to screen.No effects or transions at all.
The Image seq. is made in Daz studio and is like my project 1920x1080 pixels.

I've also tried with video clips(wma,mp4 and divx witch don't work at all) with same lacking problem.

I'm no a computer gig at all, but shouldn't my computer run this smoothly with my specifications?

[Allan Boes] "...one track set to source alpha and the other to screen... I'm no a computer gig at all, but shouldn't my computer run this smoothly with my specifications?"
No because you have two of your tracks set to a compositing mode (Source Alpha & Screen). That means to display a single frame, Vegas needs to blend a minimum of 3 tracks together. It must do this 30 time a second to playback in real-time. This will never play smoothly in HD and there is nothing wrong with your computer; you are just expecting too much of it.
