    That is not a complaint! It's just that I only have 41 brain cells left and I can't waste them learning too much.

    PC Card (aka PCMCIA) supported 16-bit (similar to ISA)
    CardBus supported 32-bit (similar to PCI)
    PCI cards supported 32-bit and 64-bit
    PCI-X cards supported 64-bit

    This is just how "wide" the data "highway" is for the interface. It has nothing to do with 32- or 64-bit OS or 32- or 64-bit CPUs. 64-bit PCI cards work fine in 32-bit Windows, they just have more bus bandwidth.
    Good grief! My tax return is easier than this. What about "no driver is available for 64bit" ?

    The dual quad computer is on the way.Where can I get the best deal on NX Express? BTW, why is a 64bit card still mentioned on "Products"? It seems that the 64bit version has been in the field already. I am confused!

    If this does not suit your needs you can shell out around $6400 for a new Mac Pro (w/o monitors), then $1200 for software, another $3,000 for an AJA Kona 3 card, and then another $6000-10,000 for a raid system. But, it will be 64bit.
    32bit is higher than I can count anyway.

    Is there a different card I should consider?
    All these changes only because I want to edit EX-1 files!

    Everyone,

    Thanks for your help. I will have both 32x and 64x on the computer and reboot as required. Hopefully GV will develop a 64bit version of NX.
    BTW, Canopus customer service has never been great but now it is awful! If it was not for the forum, I would go to another provider. I was the first user of DVRex in Atlanta and that is years ago. I guess buying and installing an Edius product is a "Rite of Passage". I still have questions but I do not want to be a pita.

    The NX Express will work great for you. :)

    Dual Quad X5365 3.0 processors

    4 500gb sata drives
    Good video card (if necessary, I can change the card)
    !331fsb
    1 pci-express 133 slot
    2 pci-express 100 slots
    WXP x64

    Only one HP mother board is listed on the compatability list!

    Thanks,

    If you are using Windows XP 64, there are no drivers for this. The machine
    itself looks great, but don't assume that Edius will use the 8 processors while editing. This is major overkill for Edius. If you use AE or other compositing or rendering programs, then the 8 processors will come into play. Also, in order to use the NX, Windows XP 32 must be installed and at that point the max of ram able to be recognized will be 3.5 gb.
    If you are dead set on getting that type of machine go for it. But, make sure your purchase is based on programs being created in the future with multi core threading. These programs are growing, but still have not made it into mainstream editing, as of yet.

    If you are buying for future expansion, make sure you get the new PCI-Express 2.0 slots. Video cards are now shipping with 2.0 capabilities and
    I'm sure others will follow. The problem with buying for vapor ware is hardware will be faster, and possibly cheaper, by the time
    the software is available. The expense for this machine is considerable, so weigh your options carefully.

    Doesn't HP sell systems with the new Xeon Harpertown CPUs? Apple started selling them already. If HP hasn't gotten on the boat yet, wait a week or two, the price should come down.

    These are the xw8400 series Workstations?

    We use them for our turnkeys. :)
