    What should i buy?
    « on: June 20, 2010, 02:45:36 PM »
    I recently purchased a Dazzle plus HD video capture card which came with an editing software Pinnacle studio 14. When i run pinnacle it runs very slow and when i record videos it lags and does not record enough frames. Does my computer need a new video/graphics card or more RAM? thank you

    It's difficult to see your computer from here. What are the specs?

        Yes, you might want to increase the ram and see how it runs then.
