I just received a new Sony VAIO RX830. It has a P4 2.66mhz processor, 512mb RAM, 80gb HD. It already has 4 firewire inputs. The audio and video are integrated. There are 3 free PCI slots (4 if I pull the modem) and a free AGP 4X slot. However, there are no more free drive bays to add an additional hard drive or two.
Has anyone had any experience (good or bad) with RT editing on a VAIO? I'd like to add the MATROX RT.X100 to my system, but I wonder if that may be too troublesome.
