I've just built myself a new PC which I'll be using for video capture, editing, etc. It's a 3.2 GHz Intel CPU with 160 Gb S-ATA hard disk and 1 Gb of DDR-400 RAM. The hard disk obviously has my Windows XP Professional operating system and video editing software running. With this setup, should I capture to the same hard-disk or is it advisable to get a second hard-disk and capture to that? I anticipate that in the long run, it's advisable to do it in a second hard disk, so the system drive doesn't get contantly trashed about with all those read/writes. But for now (until I get the second HD), will I get frame dropouts or reduced performance in my video captures if I use the same system drive? I just wondered that if the drive is already concentrating on running the OS and video software, will it be too much task for it to handle a video capture at the same time? Is an IDE hard disk as reliable as a S-ATA for video captures without frame dropouts? Thanks.
