While not my main interest for computing, Video Editing(converting and preserving old vhs to vcd) has been a recent sub interest of mine. But it seems our technology needs to take one more step before doing so with ease(non 4 hour tranfers).

A)Is there an upcoming jump in cpu technology(thoroughbred), or is it all a bunch of hype for a small change?

B)I read the next step for hardrives will be removing moving parts; solid state I believe. Is this looking way into the future, or perhaps 1st-2nd quarter '03?

I'm stuck on the worry of building a new comp to discover the newest, best technology is released 2 weeks later. I realize this is mostly an unavoidable and constant problem, but perhaps there's a storm a brewin' I'm not aware of. Hence this post, and the hope you can help me. 8)

It takes two years to iron out all the kinks of any new technlogy. No use rushing to get it at the top price. Two year old motherboards are now 70% off.

Video editing has to have 4 gb of dram memory and shut down the virtual memory.

The new technology is still going in the direction of speed and power; but you won't see motherboards capable of supporting 4 gb of dram. You have to use four computers in a cluster to achieve it.
