  1. I am wanting a new pc and i have found one. The main reason i want one is because i record HD footage of my xbox and my current pc makes it impossible to edit and work with,

    Im not good with all this techincal stuff so ill copy n past some info see what you think

    CPU: Intel® Pentium® Dual Core E5300 / 2x2.6Ghz
    MBD: ASRock G31M-VS
    RAM: 2GB DDR2

    Audio, Video and Networking
    Graphics
    * Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3100
    * Pixel Shader 2.0, DirectX 9.0
    * Max. shared memory 384MB

    Memory
    2x 1Gb DDR2 667Mhz Strips


    You think that these would allow me to edit and play around with HD footage at 1080i?

    i can currently playback HD footage ok its just editing it, which is basically impossible as it is incredibly jerky.

    i edit footage in Sony Vegas. Thankyou

    We have not found the ASRock motherboard to be very reliable, nor have very good performance... spend $25 to $40 more, and get a Gigabyte, Intel, Asus, Biostar, EVGA, Elitegroup, MSI or other board known for reliability, and you might be happy a lot longer.
    Some of the Gigabyte boards that are six months on the shelf at Directron, ZipZoomFly, Frys, PCMall, or New Egg are great boards that have had significant price reductions to clear storage space for the hot new models.
