Hello all! Just signed up today. I am a VERY amateur video guy. My video processing needs are simple. Basically, I only need it for family video stuff. My son and I ride motocross and skydive. Basically, most of my editing will be focused around that.
I do have Studio 8 on a seven year old Dell Dimension. Needless to say, it runs like crap. I think a Dell Dimension and Studio 10 Titanium would be fine for me. I like the Studio interface and I'm NOT intending on becoming a pro editor. I have seen many comments about waiting for Vista to stabilize, but my current computer is "blue screening" on me.
With that, I'd just like to ask for recommendations on processor and memory requirements. Right now, I'm looking at a Dell e520 with the 2.8Ghz processor and 2g of memory. I already have flat panels monitors and speakers. The thing I hate most about my current Dell/Pinnacle combo is the rendering time. It's horrifyingly long.
