I currently use Premiere 5.1c and a DV Raptor card. My computer is PIII 500 running windows 98SE. I am thinking of upgrading the computer, but I am happy with Premiere and DV Raptor.
I have been quoted £450 for "AMD 2800, XP, 512Mb DDR RAM, 120 GIG(7200 spin),Ge FORCE FX 5200, 128 MbTV OUT, 56K V92 MODEM, 16 X DVD,
4 x DVD REWRITER -AND+, NETWORK CARD, 6 X USB2"
Would such a system form the basis for a reasonable editting system. Is it possible to use my present card and NLE program or would I have to buy a more up to date editting program with perhaps an OHCI card. If so what NLE would you recommend at a moderate price which I may be happy with after using Premiere. I do not use the full range of options in premiere but do like the razor at edit line and ripple delete options, and sometimes use the motion and zoom in addition to a number of filters.
Any advice would be helpful.
