ProspectHD in a Premiere desktop preset

I've upgraded from Aspect to Prospect right now, hoping to to have some quality gain from the 10 bits new codec.
Using Colorista, Magic Bullet and some other Premiere features that need rendering, actually I use ProspectHD on Premiere Pro 2 without the Cinform presets (custom desktop mode), checking the "Maximum bit depth" in the rendering panel of the project options ( la NeoHD, i would say).

I wish to know what benefits from ProspectHD i'm losing, apart from the realtime acceleration. Most of all I'm concerned about the cineform pipeline and the 32bit internal processing (are they related?), because i'm really not involved in the realtime option. I'm a plain firewire HDV user, actually going from HDV to DVD (and planning to blueray at the end of the year).

Actually i use an Nvidia 7800 GTX, fast but with some bugs in the YUV-RGB interface (occasionally green frames, color shift between static and motion previews in the monitor window and so on); the benefits in using the Redgiant plugins are too huge -for me- to give them up only for the realtime option. I will check for an ATI card when MB3 will be out late this summer, but for now i'd prefer goin' my way.

I'd also suggest that a 1440x1080 preset in the Cineform Premiere presets would be appreciated to all the newcomers from Aspect.

Thanks in advance.

This has only a little to do with Paola's post, but why the Prospect 2K PPro presets do not include 25p at all? (In my understanding the SI-2K will have 2K 25p format, or how)

Presets take 30 seconds to make, so don't not need to include every combination. Select the 1920x1080p25 preset and change the resolution, or pick the 2k mode and change the frame rate, then you can even save a custom preset.
