I am contemplating the purchase of a new PC and am wondering if anyone can give me some pointers as to what will and will not work with with PPro CS2? Some of my areas of confusion are things such as: duo-core processors & Vista OS. What I'd love to hear are things that are absolute must-haves as well as processors, video cards and programs to absolutely avoid. Thank you in advance!
A must have is CS4 if you want to use Vista or Win7.
As for the PC, look here: How to get the best from a PC? Some guides...
Things to avoid like the plague are codec packs like K-Lite, FFDShow, and often Roxio.
