Both are kind of old.
OLD? My question is the Raid on my slightly slower P4 HT with 4gb of ram better than the faster AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 4200 with mere eide drives. Both nmachines have 4gb of Ram. I am running XP sp2 on both. I can not afford a new machine, with 3 machines already my wife would kill me. I might be able to swing for a better video card in the machine I edit with. Right now the IBM has a Nvidia Quadro 280, the other has a VisionTek Radeon 9600. Both cards have dual heads to drive my 22" widescreens.......
Either machine will do. Take your pick. I have a preference for Pentium.
They will work as juju says. But for HDV source they will be painfully slow. I was trying to edit hdv on a PV and without cineform, it was too slow to be productive. Howver my new machine is quad core and it purs though native hdv with no problem.
So your options are;
1. Use either machine to edit native hdv and be very very patient.
2. Spend money on Cineform to make your slo machines handle converted hdv better
3. Spend money on faster pc and edit hdv natively.
Option 4. Get a new wife. :-)
Craig, I was looking for a cheap solution.....option 4 would be the MOST expensive, honestly I am sure I could buy 100 new machines what it would take to get rid of wife #1 then 200 more machines for a wedding on wife #2.....
