Hi all,

I've been reading the posts speculating about the D200 for months now but decided not to post until there was more definite information available. I'm really excited about the D200, and will probably buy one shortly after they become available. This will be my first DSLR. (Didn't like D70, D2X too expensive, plus I'm not worthy of such a camera).

Anyway, I recently purchased a very nice PC, and I'm wondering if it is capable of handling files from a D200, or if I will need to upgrade to more memory, etc.?

This is what I have:

CPU: AMD Athlon™ 64 3500+ Processor (64-bit with AMD64 Technology)
(512KB L2 cache, 2.20GHz, 2000MHz FSB)
Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® XP Media Center Edition 2005 1
Chipset: ATI RS482
Memory: 1024MB DDR (2x512MB), 400MHz Dual Channel
Expandable to 4GB
Hard Drive: 200GB (7200 RPM, 2MB cache) 2
Optical Drives: 16x DVD±RW Multi-Format Double Layer Drive
48x CD-ROM drive
Media Reader: 8-in-1 Digital Media Manager (Secure Digital (SD), Smart Media, Micro Drive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Compact Flash, Mulitimedia Card, USB 2.0)
Video: ATI Radeon® Xpress 200 (PCI-Express®)
Up to 128MB DDR Shared Video Memory
PCI-Express (PCI-E x16) slot available for upgrade
Sound: AC '97 Audio, Dolby 5.1 (6-channel)
Modem: 56K ITU V.92 ready Fax/Modem
Network: 10/100Mbps integrated Ethernet LAN
Peripherals: Premium Multimedia Keyboard, 2-Button Wheel Mouse, Amplified Stereo Speakers
Dimensions: 14.25"H x 7.25"W x 16.00"D
Ports/Other: 7 USB 2.0 (2 in front, 4 in back, 1 in Media Reader), 2 IEEE 1394 (1 in front, 1 in back), 1 VGA external connector, 1 parallel, 2 PS/2, 5 audio ports (2 in front, 3 in back)

Any advice and suggestions welcome!

Thanks
