Dell system
on Mar 15, 2008 at 8:08:28 pm

Hello All,

I'm buying a new system but wanted to ask your opinion first. I'll be using Premiere Pro CS3 with Encore and the usual other stuff, a Pyro AV Link capture device hooked up to a VTR and Hi8 camera. Is this a good computer?

Dell Precision T3400 Mini-tower
Processor: E4500
Firewire
nVidia, Quadro FX 570, 256MB Dual DVI
XP Pro SP2
80 GB hd
DVD ROM drive
16X DVD+/-RW, Data Only drive
1GB DDR2

I'll be adding an internal 1/2 TB hard drive that's in my current machine.

Why can't I get an answer on this? Did I say something stupid?

your machine should do ok. 2 recommendTIOS:

1) for video editing you want 2GB o f ram

2)add a 2nd drive 120+GB for your video. this should be a 7200RPM SATA drive.

Thanks Gary,

I'll be adding a 500 GB 7200 SATA and it'll have 4 GB of DDR2. I got a pretty good deal on it. $598 from Dell
