Just started to get back into editing so some questions may be elementary. I started a project in Premiere 5.5 but wanted to finish in Premiere 6. Once I open project in 6 the wheels come off. Computer completely slows down, stutters, and becomes useless. Any ideas or tips would be huge! Thank you.

First off, changing software versions in the middle of an edit... bad idea.
You should finish the job, and update at a time when you will have an
opportunity to work out any wrinkles.
That said... I am not a mac guy, but your rig seems pretty
underpowered for doing much without problems anyway.
