Hey guys. So I have a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 with 1 gig of ram and a stock dell 125mb video card (but my computer is not a Dell, its a custom build) and whenever I start working in video editing applications, like Pinnacle Studio Plus v9 or Photoshop CS2 my system starts to run VERY laggy/slow to where it feels like i'm using windows98 again. I think I just need a newer, dual core, 2 gigs, 320MB video card system to run such high-end video editing software, but one of my good friends insists that its a problem with how my computer is setup: some internal issue, not my hardware. I know much more about computers than him but this computer is a custom build and when I'm running Pinnacle Studio 9 my CPU usage is only about 20% but is UNBEARABLY slow and laggy. Any ideas??
