Is this system good enough for NLE?
on Aug 30, 2007 at 8:44:32 pm

Hello Folks,

I just got a new system and was wondering if it was a good enough system to do some editing using Avid Xpress Pro or Media Composer.

]DELL SYSTEM: Dell Precision 390 Workstation

Processor Core 2 Duo (2.4 Ghz, 1066 FSB)
Current Memory: 2 – 1GB PC2-5300 at 667 mhz
Hard Drive: 4 – 80 GB (7200 RPM) Hard Drive
128MB Nvidia Quadro FX 285 Graphic Card
Creative Audigy 2 ZS with IEEE
Philips DVD+/-RW, 16x

Can you guys let me know what I should upgrade to make the system more avid friendly.

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

this system will run Xpress Pro or Media Copmposer. I would recommend you looking inot a more professional workstation graphics card like the PNY Quadro FX1500.

Looks like yo have 4 hard drives. I would not recommned using a RAID0 stripe for the OS and programs. We do recommend a dedicated drive for OS & programs, then a raid 0 set for the video and media
