If 64bit CS5 or later, LOTS more ram will help... start by doubling to 16Gig
How many hard drives?
I am Windows, and have 3 hard drives for video editing
My 3 hard drives for video editing are configured as...
1 - 320Gig Boot for Win7 64bit Pro and ALL program installs
2 - 320Gig data for Win7 paging swap file and video project files
When I create a project on #2 drive, the various work files follow,
so my boot drive is not used for the media cache folders and files
3 - 1Terabyte data for all video files... input & output files (1)
(1) for faster input/output if you have 4 drives
- use drive 3 for all source files
- use drive 4 for all output files
Thanks for the reply and the info - appreciate it.
- I am using PPro cs5.5
- Am looking to get two 1tb hard drives.
By the sounds of things getting more RAM is going to be what helps performance the most. IS RAM a bigger player than Graphics Card with playback? I would had thought a graphics card would had?
Cuda helps with SOME things... more ram helps with everything
