Will I be able to export a movie (consisting of several clips) well above 1gb with 2.5gb ram?

    Same answer that the caddy at The Old Course/St. Andrews gave his charge, when asked, "can I get there with a 5-iron?" "Eventually sir, eventually."

     

    Now, with a 64-bit OS, to run PrPro CS 5 - CS 6, are you saying that you only have 2.5GB of installed RAM?

     

    If so, I am surprised that a 64-bit OS will even run with that small amount of memory. Maybe I am just misunderstanding something there?

     

    Good luck,

    This message has a really good graphic about requirements - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/810750

     

    Since you do not describe what you are editing (click the link I just posted) I will make some general comments

     

    Core 2 is going to be VERY slow with any kind of HiDef file

     

    4Gig Ram is VERY low, barely enough to run Win7 and PPro, with almost no memory left to do any actual work

    -8Gig is the practical minimum, 16Gig is better

     

    You do not mention hard drives... you need at least two... 1st for Win7 and all software, 2nd for projects and video files

    -separate drives, never a partition http://forums.adobe.com/thread/650708 for more on partitions

    Thank you for that clarification. I must have mis-read the installed RAM.

     

    I would look at John T's links.

     

    Good luck,

    External eSata or USB3 are both fast enough for video editing... eSata is better - http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1117813

    >Nice, but can this combat the ram issue as well? Would be optimal if I can get all covered in one external device.

     

    Huh? Ram and external drive are completely different things... you need more ram (what I said in #4) so your software will work better... you need at least 2 drives so your files load and edit better
