    . Not sure what a movie editor has to do with a (primarily) still image editor.

    To one extent or another you don't have to import images to ANY version of PSE anyway. Bridge runs very close to as fast as the Windows file system.

    As long as the camera RAW files are up to date, you can edit an image directly in RAW, from a right click in Adobe Bridge.

    Or, you can spring for "Lightroom"
    It's easy to crash PSE-7. All you have to do is start a new operation while it's still in the process of another. It will either just time out in Windows 7, (cloudy screen), or worst case, exit.

    The issue of RAW file camera compatibility is the threat on which Adobe is hanging their new online only CS platform. Buy tomorrow's camera, spend 50 bucks a month on CS, (7?), online. In CS-2, I can import images from my Nikon D-80, but NOT from my D-90, or D-3000. CS-4 & PSE-7, take care of all three bodies, but not much in the way of newer cameras.

    Hi stonerose92.
    I am still running my (gaming) rig with a q6600 clocked to 3 Ghz,even the latest games run well with a AMD 7870 gpu.
    I manage to squeeze above 30 frames/sec out of this setup in any game except Crysis 3.I had to lower the in-game settings to medium but the game is still looking great.
    No problems at all with Battlefield 3,Bioshock Infinite,FarCry 3,Max Payne 3 and so on.
