      Now, as you can see, I run a monster (I Think...)!  I work with HD video (1080P 29.97 fps)


      When I preview render video (using enter key), It's faster to use software mode vs using mercury engine GPU (10s less for a 16 seconds video).  It take to me minutes and minutes to render 30 seconds video.  I don't use any special effect.  If I just revserse speed of video (100% - no effect), I'm not able (even if I render video using enter key and wait many minutes) to get a none "laggy" video.  I always get lag in my video when playback the video.  I'm not able to get clean preview with correct reel frame rate.  I can believe that.    I've the last Quadro 6000 drivers installed on my computer, I've a clean installed OS.  If I check my ressource monitor, my disks are used at 2 or 3% only.  I've more memory than what I need for 16s video.  I've a clean install of Adobe Master Collection CS6.  All update as been done (Windows/Adobe). 


      Now, I'm speachless !  What's wrong with my setup ?  It's really frustrating to not be able to play correctly a 50% speed down HD video without lag with a more then 10K $ computer...  Any help will be REALLY appreciated.  I will send some good cookies of my wife to anybody get me a solution :O) !


      My main language is french, so sorry for the mistake !  I think you get the general idea...

      Thank you !
