HP Pavilion d5000t desktop pc. I currently have CS4 Prod Premium on the 64-bit Windows 7. 8 GB Ram DDR2 (max) Core 2 Quad Q9450 2.66 GHz processor. Graphics card GeForce 9600 GS. I work with HDV footage
I have no plans to purchase a new computer any time soon, except maybe a laptop. I was considering waiting for the CS6 suites, but I am curious to know what performance/features benefits I would see going to CS5. If I need an upgraded graphics card, which would give most bang for the buck?
I also have a Matrox MX02 Mini attached.

Never change a winning team. If CS4 works for you, and you have no plans to iinvest in a new computer, continue saving.
When you make the move to CS5+, you may need a new computer. No sense in marginally improving performance at relatively high cost with components you can't use in your next system. If you want to spend money, do so on disk setup. You can carry that to your next system.
Thank you Harm. And my drive setup works well, thanks to you.
