Hello, I am looking around for a new Desktop computer any my needs are as follows:
- No gaming
- Uploading Home movieâ€™s non HD and HD
- Editing, rendering and burning my home movies
- Web surfing
- Burning My own DVDâ€™S regular STD and Blu- Ray ,
- Working with Digital Pictures, correcting them with Adobe or other programs and printing and/or e-mailing them to a Processor like Snapfish to have them developed
My current systems are: 1. Windows XP, with bulging capacitors, who knows how long it will operate?
2, Windows Vista 32 bit Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core, 2.40 Gigahertz, 4Gig memory, 320 hard drive and a Seagate 320 external drive.
What I have read or others suggested is a 64 bit Quad Core Windows Vista
my concerns are that Vista is on the way out and some softwareâ€™s are still
not compatible with it and that Windows 7 system is around the corner
and who knows what programs will be compatible with, time will tell I did not downloaded the Beta version, my mistake.
What I am asking this forum members are for there input if they wish to
chime in and state the experience that they have had with a 32 or 64 bit
PC have heard that a 64 bit runs on the hot side and need a least a 500-
700 watt fan.
Could just keep my Vista once that my XP is shot but while editing or
rendering my home movies, would like to play around the web or forums
or might be better of on just getting a small pc, to do this. (Less outlay) but for about $200-250 can probably get a better system then my current Vista.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
