Default questions regarding my outdated system

I have Windows XP, Intel Motherboard and Intel Quad Core 2.4GHz processor, 2GB Ram, 450 Watt power supply, NVidia GeForce 7300 GT,western Digital 250GB Hard drive, 1TB Hard drive, Edius 4.6.1.

I know it is OLD but has been great for me in editing thus far. My graphics card is dying and I need to know if it can be replaced and with what or if this system is too old. Can this system work with any other version of Windows? I would like to try and make this work, especially because of financial reasons. Is it possible? With what configuration?

I love editing with Edius.

you can replace with a GTX 650 or 670

a 450W power supply is not enough for the GTX 670

in fact, a 450W is just about too weak for anything, maybe it is dying and not the graphics card?

First thing in a computer is the power supply. Invest in a good one that can grow with you . 450W is not enough really for a good graphics card as Anton stated.
Look at 600W minimum but the quality is just as important. One really good brand is Seasonic if you want to feel secure about reliability, they have some brilliant performers...

Thank you both for your advice. I am not knowledgeable about the configuration of computers but really would like to continue working with my Edius 4.6.1 as long as I can. My computer screen starts getting green lines through it and then it freezes and goes black. I just want anything I change out to be compatible with my existing system. Do you know if this version of Edius is comparable with any other versions of Windows?

That was a while ago. But, I think that 5.51 was the first version to be Win 7 compatible. Edius 5.51 is still touted, by many, as the best version released. Edus 4.6x was a very good version as well, but, it is somewhat outdated.

What you might want to consider is 'patching' up the old machine for as reasonable as possible, and then consider moving into a newer machine with a 64bit OS. That way you would still have your 4.6x version on one machine, and what ever version on the new machine. I would say go to Edius 7 but from the sound of it, Edius 7 might be overkill for what you do.

If you can find a used version of Edius 5.51 or even Edius 6.x, I think that would be a nice stepping stone so that you could use a newer OS and not be totally confused by the newer Edius features and workflows. ]
But the only way to get a full 64bit workflow is Win 7 or 8 with Edius 7.

If you are sure its the graphic card and you do not want to replace your lower watt power supply, consider the Radeon HD7750. It is a low power card that gives good performance. It can run off the power supplied at the PCIe slot. I am running this in my system.
