I built the following rig around Adobe Premier Pro and a Matrox RTX.10, but my dad just finds it too complicated.
I am thinking about rejigging the system for Pinnacle Studio 9 or 10, but have read so many negative customer reviews at Amazon.com.
Will Pinnacle Studio 9 or 10 be stable and trouble free on this rig (also, will an ATI 9600 non-pro be sufficient for video editing):
Asus P4C800 rev. 2 Deluxe mobo
Intel Pentium IV 3.0c
2 x 512 MB Kingston Value RAM dual channel kit
WD 80 GB drive (boot)
2 x 80 GB Hitachi 80 GB SATA drives in RAID0
Matrox G450 video card (would like to replace with ATI 9600 non-pro)
Antec Truepower 380s pulled from an Antec Sonata
Antec SLK3700AMB case
NEC3500a DVD burner
Lite-On 52x DVD Rom / cDRW drive
