Hello my fellow Avideers
I have a curve ball for you....
I have a dell precison 490 with a single 3GHz XEON Processor. 2GB Ram, NVIDIA FX 3500 GFX card , I also have a SDI Mojo and I am running Avid express pro on it....
BUT the processor FSB is only 667 not 1333. I did not realise this when I bought the machine but I have since noticed that the laptop equivalents work fine on this chip set...
a) If I get a second 3GHz XEON Prossor to take advangage of the DUAL technology on offer ... will I be opening a can of worms with compatiblity? At the moment I MIGHT get thorugh a days editing without a crash... Im wonreding if the FSB667 is the trouble..?
b) I have a copy of Media composer 2.7.2 and I would like to install it on this machine..I am going to install a second bank of 2GB of ram to bring it up to 4 so my new spec would be
Dell Precsion 490 with 2x XEON 3GHz FSB 667 and 4 GB ram with 3500 GFX card
WOULD THIS FALL OVER RUNNING MEDIA COMPOSER 2.7.2 with SDI MOJO?????
ALL POSTS WELCOME! John Ferguson
Thanks for reply
I am really just asking is the FSB such a big deal.... If not why the emphasis on 1333?
I am reluctant to upgrade current machine if 667 is a weak link Ild rather buy a lower GHz machine with the correct FSB than charge on and end up with complications later...
Thanks again for letting me know your thoughts
GUYS I thank you for your time!
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND CHEERS!
