Videoguys, I'm building a new box for my Xpress...

Do you think I should go with a single P4 (2.2GHz) or a Dual AMD MP1900 setup?

I'm building the system for XpressDV 3.5.

Thanks.

Here ya go -

If you're a tweaker and a power user, go dual Athlon. These systems ROCK! The catch is that for NLE, you've gotto invest a littel time & efort to make sure it is properly tweaked.

A Single P4 is the way to go for speed and convenience. Most P4 systems will rock right off the shelf.

Right now we are in the process of updating the machines in our demo/eval/test room. I'll be getting HP 1100i workstations with a single P4 2.2 Ghz CPU & 512-768 megs of RAM.

Yeah, I saw that review. That's why I'm second guessing the dual AMD setup.

I'm not about to pay the going rate for the P4 2.53 though.

I figure the P4 2.2 with a 533 frontside bus mobo (Abit IT7) would make for a pretty nice lil' box.

However, now I'm leaning back towards Dual MP1900+s (maybe MP2000s).

I've been toiling with this for the last several weeks. I can't make a friggin' decision.

Either way I can only afford 2 sticks of RAM (2 X 512).

I wonder how that will effect the performace of each of these two systems. So, it's either 1 gig with the P4 or 1 gig split between two Athlons.

Hmmm... I'm still not sure.

Thanks to Gary and Kdaves for the feedback! Much appreciated!

I decided to go with the dual Athlon MP2000s, finally.

Thanks guys.
