I'm interning at a college making some videos for the school. The workstation they've assigned to me is a 2008 MP (2x2.8ghz quad-core). Right now it's got 4 GB RAM (4x1GB) and the ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT with 256MB graphics card. There's a chance to optimize the machine for doing video work. I'll be using FCS3, Premiere Pro CS5 and After Effects CS5 to edit video, add effects, color grading, etc. What are the best options to make the most efficient MP? CS5 can use tons of RAM, but how much is practical? 32GB would be overkill, I believe, but 4GB is just peanuts for rendering. The RAM needs to be in pairs, so if I kept the existing 4GB and added on, say, 4x2GB, would that be a good choice? Or would it be better to get a faster graphics card and keep the RAM? If so, which one? Hard drive upgrades are unlikely. Any suggestions appreciated. My budget isn't determined but my job isn't a high a priority in the office, so I need modest upgrades, maybe a few hundred dollars max and only one of the two options mentioned.
