    Playback laggy and choppy when effects are added

      Hi All,


      Haven't found much on this specific problem, looking for some assistance. Here is the problem:


      Using a fresh test clip, I import and use playback to watch it, everything is fine. Next I add a complex effect (Magic Bullet Looks, for example), all of a sudden the playback doesn't work entirely, or is incredibly laggy/choppy. This even occurs when I use a simple Adobe effect, like Alpha Glow for instance.


      Here is my setup:


      Core i7 950 3.07GHz, 12GB RAM, Win7 x64 Ultimate, WEI: 7.5

      XFX Radeon HD 6950, 2x 128GB SSD hdds (1 for projects, 1 for scratch disks)


      My hardware is clearly capable, this has got to be a software issue, please advise, thank you!
