Dual processors

I read under your real time card comparison article that the DV Storm required dual 700 processors as the minimum. Now I know that the article was written a while agao and since then there have been new developements in faster processors. Do you still feel the Storm reqires dual processors as the minimum? I read some where the new P4 2.4 and upwards should do the job nicely. Any comments? Sorry for all the questons but I'm building my computer and need to do everything right from the start before purchasing the DV Storm. Thanks.

A single P4 2.4 will give you very good results with the DV Storm. At least 3 streams of video plus graphics. That's more then any other card on the market.

For the full 5 streams in real-time we still recommend a dual processor system.

Get a full gig of memory. Storm uses memory to buffer the real-time playback.

Thanks Gary. Everyone seems to like the Athlon processors when it comes to dual processors. Would the recommeded dual 2000MP do for the full 5 streams? Which board?
