I use my system to to convert Standard Definition video to High Definition video. Power Director 10 specifies an i7 cpu. But does it use all those cores? I want to give my E8400 a chance at 64 bit Windows. Is it worth the budget upgrade?
This is what I have planned:
System Board from G31 to DP45SG
Memory 4 GB DDR2-800 to 8 GB DDR3-1333
Video HD5450 500MB GDDR2 to HD6670 1GB GDDR5 or HD6770 1GB GDDR5
Windows Vista 32 to 8 64 bit
Power Director 10 to 11 and/or just the ATI Media Converter.
