hdv editing..help me move from sd-hdv

Hi there,
I currently edit my sd on a 3.2ghz p4 half a gig ram pc running ppro1.5 with a canopus realtime edit card.

I know i need better kit to edit hdv..im about to buy a jvc gy hd251.
this is stretching my budget(id rather get the main expense over).

so what would people recomend i spend about 1200 on to get the best "bang for my buck"?---pardon the expression.
many thanks

craig maret

Definately more RAM (like 2 GB) and preferably CoreDuo processor.

And sell your Canopus card. It is useless for HDV.

Depends on which Canopus card he has. If it's NX there's no better card for HDV.

steven you are correct it is 3 years old and rubbish!
this whole thing seems like a minefield..i bought a book called hdv filmmaking by Chad Fahs..seems a little out of date(cant find anything on cineform) but a good starter.

for someone who makes a living from sd video production going into hdv is scary(but well worth it), can anyone recomend a slightly newer read?
