Is this a correct build for Sony Vegas 7 & Premiere CS3
on Jul 5, 2007 at 8:30:23 pm

My preference is to use Sony Vegas 7, is this a good or bad build? Would it be suitable if I chose to use Premiere CS3? Only interested in standard definition editing for home/wedding/family function vids. There will be effects but nothing to heavy. Thanks

Asus P5WDH Deluxe
2.6g E6700 dual core
ONBOARD SOUND - Not adding a sound card
3 harddrives
ASUS EAX1950PRO/HTDP/256M/A graphics card
firewire card
DAC-200 - to take care of capture of analogue & monitoring of timeline

I don't need a capture card do I?
Am I likely to run into any problems?

My inputs will be from a dv camera also analogue inputs.
I would like to monitor the timeline on a tv

Your help would be appreciated. Of course I am on a small budget and I have settled on this configuration so please don't confuse matters unless you think it is really necessary. My head is in a spin already.

It looks pretty good though u dont mention OS and RAM.

Avoid windows vista, windows xp pro will give u no problems, and use at least 1 GB RAM.

If u are going to use Vegas u can save some money using a cheaper video card (vegas has no use for it, premiere uses nvidia cards), if u like ati an X700 is enough, even gaming.

Im not familiar with DAC200, just be sure it is compatible with Vegas.

Oh yes, windows xp pro it will be! 2gig ram is intended. So thank you for your response, it's all looking pretty positive.

Regarding the Dac-200, I have been told that this is a better option rather than worry about compatibility of capture cards. So I am told, the Dac-200 will work if you plugged it into your lawn mower! Fingers crossed!

you should be fine. the dac 200 will work fine with the firewire that is built on that motherboard.
