CS5 On 'Older' Quadcore

I've got a Intel 9450 cpu with a motherboard that takes ddr1066 RAM. (8Gigs). Using a NVidia 280 card and hoping to get realtime playback with 2 HDV tracks. Anybody getting realtime playback with a slightly older system like this?

You shouldn't have any problems with your setup. Just make sure you unlock the NVidia card so it can use the Mercury Playback Engine in hardware mode.

Here is a link to an article on how to unlock the card in Premiere CS5

David, thanks for the comments. I noted your comments about ddr3 memory on the video card. I'm just hoping the ddr2 memory on the motherboard won't be a major bottleneck.

Eric,

With a relatively slow CPU (at least in comparison to 980X) you will see even more advantage from MPE acceleration than on a faster CPU, but this may in part be offset by the latency between CPU/GPU/RAM.

I concur with David, you will not have any problems.
