    Getting started with CS4 Pro.Prem. - Which CPU Type?

    VideoRide09

      Hey everyone,


      I'm working with a new camcorder recording in 1920x1080 HD AVCHD (*.mts).


      I'm going to work with CS4 Production Premium on Vista 64 Bit, 8 RAM DDR3, 1 GB Nvidia graphic.

      Both programs, AE and Prem. will be used. (Works will cutting, effects, color cor., keying, rendering, all-round)


      Since editing avchd material nativ requires loads of performance, I'm gonna

      get myself a new Desktop-PC.


      I got two CPUs on my mind:


      Intel Core2 Quad Q9550      4x 2,83GHz

      Intel Core2 Duo E8500         3,17GHz


      So whats better for the suite, Core or Duo? Is the 2,83 faster then

      the 3,17 Duo or shall I use a 3,3 Duo?


      I'd really appreciate a few tips and answers!


      Best,

      Alex
