Re: What processor to upgrade from a Q6600 quadcore?

Thanks for your answer guys.

VirtualMirage - How much faster would you say your machine is now? 20%? 2X faster? 3 times faster?

Jim Cockfield - I use Pinnacle Studio 15, I do not get along well with Premiere (I'm a noob).

I did try and like Cyberlink Power Director, it renders and converts pretty fast, but the thing is I work very fast with Pinnacle 15. Lots of keyboard shortcuts, I go forward and backwards frame by frame with the scroll wheel... For my type of editing it's just perfect, but it renders slowwww. there's a new Pinnacle 16 but it's a new Avid Studio, not a Pinnacle 15 upgrade, and I don't want to spend a month just learning it, I'd rather spend that month learning Power Director.

Unfortunately I have a pretty nice 7870 AMD 1GB DDR5 board. I needed one with MiniDisplayPort to use with my Mac Cinema Display. So, no benefits here. No Nvidia to help me out...
