    System upgrade: FX3800 / i7



      I want to update my system, but due to budget limitations can choose between 2 types of update:  graphic card OR system.


      My current system:

      • Windows 7 pro, 64bit
      • Premiere pro cs5
      • Intel core duo 2.66GHZ (E6750)
      • 4gb ram
      • ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT, 512MB


      My issue:

      Can not play HD video files smoothly in premiere. the image is displayed in very bad quality and jittering, and keep stopping.

      I want to be able to edit in real time, or as close as possible to it.

      Video files i'm using: MTS/AVCHD, AVC1(cannon rebel T2i)


      First option for an upgrade:

      • PNY Quadro FX 3600


      Second option for an upgrade:

      • Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHZ LGA 1366 Quad-core (BX80601950)
      • Asus P6TD Delix LGA 1366 Intel X58 motherborad
      • Corsair Dominator 6GB (3X2GB) 240-pin DDR3


      Third option for an upgrade:

      • Same system upgrade as before but with an addition of a cheper video card.



      Which option do you think will help me the best to acheive what I want?

      If you choose the third option, which card will  you reccomend with it?


      Thanks a lot
