my basic pc is a 7 yr old amd 1.4GHz with 1.5GB ram. e VGA that I suspected conked is a 9700 Pro from ATI. now that conroe is out, i just itch to overhaul everything since prices and performance goes reciprocal.
thought a Conroe 1.83/2-4GB ram/256VGA ATI card will do just fine. seriously, my old system can still edit on the fly but w/o graphic acceleration cause broken. i need a pc for my PS-CS2 else will go to waste. part of my workflow is also CS2 governed cause there are still some aspects that cannot be tuned using lightroom on a mac.
