Anyone using a 2.8 Ghz dual core Intel system for HDV editing?

Kind of a similar question to my other one below, but more direct and easy to answer:

Is anyone using a 2.8 Ghz dual core Intel system for HDV editing? (In my case using Aspect HD w/ Premiere Pro) If that will be sufficient, I can get a very inexpensive deal on one at the Dell outlet and siink more money into my camera Sony FX1 and the Cineform software..

I suggest reading the Cineform site for their recommendations since you will be using Aspect HD.

Thx, their site says "Best Price/Performance: Dual-core Pentium 840 D (820 or 840)." I was looking for personal experiences but I am pretty well convinced now that I can get a cheap Pentium D system and use that for HDV editing. I think one of these will do the job for me, and save me a lot of $ to purchase Aspect HD and a the Sony FX1 camera.

Update- I picked up a refurbished Pentium D 930 without a monitor (dual 3.0 Ghz processors) w/ a Gb of RAM and a dual layer DVD burner for $759 + $45 tax and only $25 for 3-5 day shipping= only $829.

I would throw another Gig of RAM in there, but you should be fine other than that.

That's what I was thinking, RAM is cheaper on the aftermarket. I think I got a great deal. Can't wait for UPS to deliver the pc and Aspect HD. :-)

I'm using a Dual-Core D820

I bought a Gateway 64-bit Pentium D 820 2.8Ghz with a Gig of RAM two weeks ago.

So far, so good !

Premiere Pro 2/After Effects 7 with AspectHD (the demo... I'll buy it next week) works just fine.

Too bad Premiere doesn't allow you to "save" to HDV... just dump to tape.

Anyway...

I'll add another Gig of RAM soon.

You never have enough RAM...

those P dual cores tends to over heat, i'd suggest AMD X2 they seems to be working better :-)
