Optimizing you settings to HD


I have a GEFORCE 6600 LE that I use with Premiere Pro 2.0 on my AMD 64 DUAL CORE 3800, with 2giga of RAM and my Hd footage is still not realtime when I play it on the timeline. I surely must be doing something wrong, because I read many times that people with less powerful pcs could edit Hd real time. Is there any particular setting I should set the Geforce to? Is there anything I should do to the pc? There's gotta be something wrong.

Hi Rafael, you've got to remember that these GeForce cards and most of their ATI counterparts are designed and optimised for 3d games. Although Premiere Pro does have some GPU accelerated effects that will take advantage of your graphics card, there's not a lot. I cringe when I hear of people buying geforce 7800gtx's and the like for video editing. It'll do no harm for sure but it just isn't designed for that sort of thing.
Have a look at something like the Canopus Edius NX card, even though it's quite pricey!
Strip your computer of all unnecessary programs and background services (or switch them off when not needed), defrag hard-drives regularly (at the very least have windows and programs on seperate physical disk from your video capture/edit files). Basic stuff but thought I'd mention it just in case!
Good luck ;)
