Would this system work with Vegas Pro 8?

They have this system at Sam's Club and I was wondering if it would be powerful enough to use with Vegas Pro 8....especially using the multicam feature? I'm about to purchase a couple of JVC GY HD200U cameras and will be shooting weddings in HDV 720/60p.

Thanks.

Link doesn't work. If it is a quad-core processor with at least two gigs of ram and non-integrated video card should be fine.

You might also consider adding a 1Tb hard-drive. Seagate and Samsung each have great ones for under $300. Despite some poor reviews on NewEgg, I really like the new Samsung Spinpoint 1Tb drive, it's fast and inexpensive. If you are shooting HD you will all the space you can get!

Yes, it should work.

I assume it's running Windows Vista Home Premium? Is it the 32bit or 64bit version?

I purchased this HP (running Vista Home Premium 64bit) and have been running Vegas 8 Pro on it for a little over a month now without any issues.

Only one thing to consider. If you use your HD200 for capturing it is all fine. If you should choose to use the BR-HD50, remember that that device only works under Windows XP.

That pc is very similar to my mine.Same processor,same graphics card.I originally had 2gb of ram,upgraded to 4gb,didn't make much difference.
That pc will be plenty for vegas pro 8,which i also use.

Only shortcoming I could see in the system is it's limited expandability. Unless I'm mistaken it will only accomodate one additional hard drive.

Thanks for the info guys. I just picked up the computer and I'm gonna try it out. Sams Club gives you 6 months to return computers so I should have plenty of time to mess with it.

Werner, I am concerned about what you said about the deck only working with Windows XP. Are you saying the firewire connection won't work with that deck with Vista?
