My New Rig's DxDiag Files

I picked up my new computer from the retailer this evening. Before loading my fresh out-of-the-box PowerDirector Ultra64 software, I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind too much and take a look at my dxdiag files.

I already have a little glitch. My WD 1TB HD isn't showing up. I will talk with the retailer/builder tomorrow about that little problem. (I mention this only for info and in no way am making this a hardware problem thread.)

I will probably get a comment about the SSD being too light on storage. I would like to start slow and small on my HD editing, and will make short clips and try to get by with this SSD for a bit. But if I encounter problems early with it being too small, I'll gladly swap it out.

Anyway, thanks in advance for allowing me to post up the two files and comments/suggestions are welcome and appreciated. I thought maybe if someone saw a serious flaw, it might be good to correct it prior to loading Cyberlink Powerdirector 9 Ultra64.

Quick glance I don't see any major concerns. The graphics driver is out-of-date. It's not old, but NVIDIA does have a more recent driver released. Don't forget QuickTime or other good codec packages.

It's funny when we talk about a 120GB hard drive as small. I still remember how excited I was when the 1GB SCSI drives came out. Have fun. __________________________________

Hi TexasCityDave -

My only concern is that I don't have what you have!

That 120GB C drive does look a bit puny beside the big gun processor, high end GPU & bulk RAM! Once you start editing, I don't think it'll be too long before you're trading up or adding on.

Your new rig will be able to chew up anything you throw at it. It makes my PC look like a sissy... & mine does pretty well with HD editing.

My apologies for the overly technical language

Cheers - Tony
