dell 8200 series, geforce card, and xp
on Mar 11, 2003 at 5:19:18 pm

Hello, I'm a newbie still with some terms so please bear with! At my day joe I work with premeire and use a dv500plus so i'm use to those products and would like to keep using them. I'm a newbie when it comes to adding things to computers. I already own a DELL 8200 series computer and i'm looking for any ideas on how to keep xp and edit in real time? I also want to change my video card (GeForce2 mx)to a dual monitor one? Any ideas to try I won't hold agaisnt anyone if they don't work so please HELP!
Anyone have any suggesting on which dual graphics card i should get? I read somewhere that the Matrox G550 dual card worked, can anyone comment on that?
thanks

that machine has never been the best with realtime cards. We have had a number of problems with it and stopped recommending the machine altogether. Check out our system recommendations page on our web site at http://www.videoguys.com/system.htm.

Unfortunately, if you want to keep xp on this machine, you can basically forget about getting anything to work right.

We have had a TON of problems with trying to get any Premiere based realtime editing system to work on the Dell 8200. There is of course another option that would work on your machine. Sonic Foundry just introduced the Vegas 4 software which uses your computer's CPU to get realtime ability through software and just a universal OHCI DV card. This would be the best solution for your machine. I know you are used to Premiere but to get realtime editing on a Premiere system you need a hardware card like the DV500/ProONE, RTX10/100, etc. And, most of those cards have had SERIOUS compatibility problems with the Dell 8200. Sorry for the bad news... Dell machines are usually the best but the 8200 is an exception to that. Check out the Vegas software at http://www.videoguys.com/sonicfoundry.html and see if it interests you. Or, if you plan on putting together a new machine to support a realtime Premiere system check out our system recommendations at http://www.videoguys.com/system.htm. You can always give us a call at 800-323-2325. I'm Jim at ext. 110
