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:

Just based on D2X experience, I would guess, you are ok on your PC configuration on almost every count with the exception of RAM. Another 512MB or 1GB of RAM will be better.
Speed is significant and interesting but accuracy is downright fascinating!

Just one suggestion:
Buy a Macintosh... and then go out and buy Aperture.
#3. "RE: PC Requirements for D200?" | In response to Reply # 0Sat 29-Oct-05 01:29 AM
I would definitely get more memory. I think that is the integrated version of the video card for the newer ATI chipset. Its probably ok. These will be your two biggest areas to gain speed. If you do find a couple hundred dollars extra in your wallet, I would get memory first and then a video card. Your processor is stellar.
You have a '2' after your hard drives. If they are in RAID (that is great), then I would suggest another drive. Even by formatting separate partitions in RAID, you are just waiting for the drives to finish writing and move to another sector before the next operation. Having two 'separate' drives (which you might already have) will speed up processing... but is by no means a must.
If you use Photoshop CS2, you might get a slight speed boot from Windows XP x64 Professional edition... but again by no means a must
You've got a pretty nice system!!

Thank you all for the replies! A tremendous help!
Jess mentioned "RAID". I don't know what that is. (My brother is the computer expert that helps me with these things). I do know that my computer has a "C" & "D" hard drive. The "D" drive is a "system recovery partition", if I try to open it, I get a warning not to touch the files, so I don't. I also have an 80GB external hard drive, which is actually the drive from my old computer.
As far as software, I have PS Elements 2.0. At some point I'll probably upgrade to the full version after I have mastered "Elements".
I still have a lot to learn about digital imaging. Even though I don't have the camera yet, I've been using my Canon MP760 to scan the negatives from my N80, so I'm at least gaining a little experience in that regard.
I'll plan on adding at least 1GB of RAM. Bring on the D200! This is what I've been waiting for Nikon to release!
Thank you all again for your help!

RAID is the process of connecting two (or more) hard-drives and using them as one. RAID0 means that the computer uses all the space as a single drive and 'theoretically' does everything twice as fast because it is writing half the data to one drive and simultaneously the other half of the data to the other drive (striping). Think of it as painting with two paintbrushes at the same time.
RAID1 means that you write the same data to both hard-drives, thus if one hard-drive dies, then your other one is a mirror copy (but you only have half the total space of the two drives). There is a little more to it than that, but that is main idea. Your brother should be able to tell you if you have RAID or not. It's not that big of a deal. If you have RAID, then when you turn-on and/or reboot your computer, you should see some message blink on the screen to this effect. Also, from your taskbar, you can click:
"Start" >> Control Panel (Switch to Classic View) >> System >> Hardware Tab >> Device Manager
This should bring up a list of all your hardware. Hit the '+' next to "Disk Drives" and "SCSI and RAID Controllers". You should be able to tell from there how many hard drives you have and if they are in RAID or not.

I think this is wasted space, but talk to your brother see what he says. I'm sure he will steer you in the direction that is best for you.
>I also have an 80GB external hard drive, which is
>actually the drive from my old computer.
I would only use this as a archive storage/backup destination. I would keep all your current files on your second internal hard drive. Things can be very slow when using some external hard drives. You might try it and see if you notice a difference.

I think we all do. Especially since everything continues to change at a 'rapid' pace.

Don't worry about bulking up your computer. You have more horsepower than I do. I work on 150 megabyte (and up) layered Photoshop illustrations without things getting slow, even with Illustrator and some other apps going. Assign your scratch file to your second physical hard drive. Spend your money on a display and calibration package.
I'd be excited to take the "buy Apple" advice and dump all my existing software, then wait for Apple to provide raw support for the D200 when the list of supported cameras is very thin today. It makes great sense to buy an expensive new computer to use software that nobody has tested. By all means I'll jump ship, learn a new platform and not worry about how good a job Aperture does with conversions.

I too agree the spec is good enough, although upgrading it to 2gb RAM is definitely going to help a lot for today's larger and larger image files.
Display and calibration software is very important. LCD is good and affordable, but needs lot of calibration initially. But I found that once I calibrated it, the weekly recalibration never sees the need to adjust anything.
I have a 24" 1920x1200 display. I like the widescreen format because I could have tool bars along the left and right. Personal preference.
To support a 24" display, the display card has to be good, very good. The large display will need all the bandwidth that the card can support.

Sharky, on what basis are you concluding the specs are good enough? What is the baseline for comparison? I really don't see how processing 10.2MP files with 16.6 MB size as easy to process with 1 GB of RAM. Could you please enlighten us on how you are concluding that?

I've assumed that the original post is from a person who has just started into digital photography. He did say the D200 would be his first DSLR. He also said he had the computer (with 1gb RAM), but no mention of the display. So, why not spend the money on some good display and calibration tool before upgrading the computer?
I've a similar computer but slower CPU (Athlon 3200+) with 2gb RAM.
I don't have a 10.2 or 12.4 MP raw files in my computer. I only have a D70. I usually open multiple images in RAW. I have a habit of taking multiple shots of the same subject and layout or when I shoot moving objects. So I would open them at the same time, look at them, adjust them, ... Eventually, even 1gb of RAM is just too limiting for my style of work.
Don't forget that we usually have quite a few other applications running in the background, such as antivirus, anti-spyware, music player ... that takes up memory. Of course the Mac lovers here will say that Mac does not need antivirus software... Cool.
Is my computer good enough? I wish I have a RAID 10 disk storage system. I have been drinking too much coffee while waiting for the files to be saved-into/loaded-from disks. I also could use a dual-processor computer with 8gb RAM, when I got more creative in photography in the distant future.
Isn't it frustrating that we have to spend so much time talking about those boring computers when we go digital? I miss shooting slides.

Just one small hint concerning antivirus software. If scanning permanently, it really reduces speed a lot. You may use a separate PC to process photos, never connect it to Internet and work only with images from your cameras, software CDs and files checked for viruses preliminarily - there will be no need in antivirus at all. It increases speed a lot. The second PC - for Internet surfing and word processing etc. - may be a simpler and inexpensive one, I actually use my old one I decided to keep instead of selling for nothing. Both can share the same printer, monitor, keyboard and mouse...

Well I am running a 1.5Ghz 12inch Apple Powerbook with 1.256GB of ram.
I have pushed both D2X (fairly close to D200 files) and files from a Phase One P25 digital back which gives MUCH larger files then any current DSLR can output.
I have had no problem with either files.
2 plus gigs of ram would be great and if you have the budget to do that I would recommend you do.
Other wise I think you are fairly well off.
Once you have a D200 and have spent some time with the files in your post processing program of choice you should have a better idea of if you are conferrable running such files through your system.
#12. "RE: PC Requirements for D200?" | In response to Reply # 0
Like most of the people I would agree that you would probably need a RAM upgrade just to make things move faster so that not to use you hard disk as temp for processing.
In my home in Greece I have a P4 3.2GHz with 2GB of RAM (next step is another 2GB) but here in Japan I have only my laptop. Although it is a Mobile Celeron at 1.3GHz with 1GB of RAM, I can play around with Photoshop CS and CS2 with scannings from my Nikon 5000 Coolscan at a size of about 120MB.
I am not saying that is fast, however is going well.
So do not worry about your system. Just add another 1GB or even 2GB of RAM and you are fine.
Of course you can still upgrade it with many goodies but.....this is up to you!!

In skimming through the replies, what seems to have been missed (apologies to anyone if I missed it) is that the computer requirements depend more on the software you're using than the files you're loading. (At least when we're talking processing DSLR files. If you're doing HD video, that's something else. )
That said, I second the advice for taking RAM to 2GB if you can afford it. But good anti-virus and firewall software is more important, as is monitor calibration hardware and software. I recommend the Monaco Optix XR package.
#14. "RE: PC Requirements for D200?" | In response to Reply # 13GonzoBernelli Basic MemberSat 29-Oct-05 05:34 PM
I would recommend a different processor. Get one with 1MB L2 cache.
Also system memory, minimum 2GB and if you can afford it 4GB.
Consider getting 2 Maxtor 300GB SATA drives, 7200 RPM w/16MB on-disk cache each. Plug them into an Adaptec 1210SA PCI adapter card choosing RAID 0 for striping. All for about $420 and less if you deal with some PC parts discounters. (I'm doing this next weekend).

Wow, that's a plenty fast system you have. Seriously...I've been doing 3D animation and video editing on lesser systems. Don't worry about upgrading. Save your money for now and if you really find that your system is not fast enough for your tastes and have the budget to upgrade then do it AFTER you've got a camera. Unless your living depends on meeting extremely tight deadlines for processing large amounts of RAW files, most of your time will be spent tweaking the few of the good images you've taken in a set. Use the money to buy another compact flash card

You guys have to make me laugh sometimes. "I would recommend a different processor." The guy is using an Athlon64 3500. It's only one of the fastest, most capable CPUs on the face of the planet. But no, it's not good enough, he needs even more. Gimme a break.
Same story with the disks. He doesn't need RAID 0 and all that jazz.
Unless this guy's computer is going to be set for batch processing thousands of RAW files per day, continuously, with apprentices scrambling over it at all hours of the night to keep it fed, all this attempt at getting all the way up to very latest and greatest of speed that is at all possible is just money down the toilet.
I currently am using an Athlon64 3000, with 2 gb of RAM and a single 250 gb SATA hard drive. I'm convinced that my machine is at least two or three times faster than what I'd need to feel like I could chug along nicely. I've worked with Canon 20D raw files that I took with my brother's camera, using PS CS2, on this machine. No problems at all. The D200 files won't be all that scarier.
To the original poster: your machine is just fine. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, do as these others suggest and get some color calibration hardware and make sure you have a nice display. I too have a 1920x1200 24" lcd and it's fantastic. Alas, I have no calibration stuff yet but I'm not a pro and have not so far been bothered by what I see on screen. All the same, I'd like to get a calibrator at some point.
Now, let me get back to plotting what I can sell on eBay and how much my wife will allow me to write off Christmas and my birthday in January, and then how much I can squirrel away outside of the budget, and see if I can manage to procure a D200 sometime in the near future. Muahahahahaha!

I was meaning to post earlier but my old login seems to have been deleted and only just had time to set the account back up. That and I decided to upgrade in the process.
I am of a mind that you have more power than you really need right now so unless you are doing this professionally where the little gain you get will help you make deadlines then I would not worry about it.
So a better approach for you would be to wait for your camera and get used to your work flow before jumping to the upgrades. This will let you see how well your current computer works for you and if you find things are too slow then I would consider the upgrade.
People have said more ram, the more the better and though this is true in general, the amount of gain deminishes as you put more RAM into a system. Each OS has their optimum limits where the amount of gain deminishes greatly after this point is reached. Windows XP I heard has a optimum of around 1 gig. This is not to say that more will not give you performance gains but rather the gains will be minimum. You have a 64bit processor so I will make sure you are running Windows XP for 64 bit processors before upgrading pass the 1 gig ram mark. I heard the Microsoft had a upgrade offer for Windows XP professional to the 64 bit edition. From what I hear, this new OS has an optimum performance of up to 4GBs of ram which will make your RAM investment better for your money.
However, before you go with more RAM, I think the Raid approach will get you more performance gains as HD bandwidth is usually one of the things that slows most of todays computers. People think that this only helps in the save process but in truth, your computer is always reading and writing to you HD so doubling your HD bandwith will have a definate gain on the speed of your computer.
But again, before I do any of these, I would try your computer out as is with the D200 and the software you plan to use and see how they work for you. If you find that you need more power speed, then you can consider upgrading.
Thats my 2 cents worth.

This is unquestionably the _best_ advise posted yet. Your system is quite adequate. There may be ways to improve it, but as it stands it will do the job.
IMHO, if after you use it for a while you find you want to speed it up, I would highly recommend a switch to SATA hard drives. I've been using two Dell systems for image editing, one with a 2.2ghz P4 and a SATA drive and the other a 2.4ghz P4 with IDE, both with 1gig RAM. Despite the slower processor, the SATA based machine is faster running Photoshop CS and faster doing file operations in the OS (XPsp2 in both cases).

Well, just to put things in perspective, my current image editing machine is a 350mhz G4 Mac with less than a gig of RAM. It runs PS 5.5 and processes 35mb image files very rapidly, even with complex PS functions. But PS loves RAM and RAM is cheap so if you do feel the need to upgrade, do that first.
As for switching to Apple, that wouldn't make sense unless you are already in the market for a new machine and don't have a lot of money tied up in Windows software. However, they're beautiful machines, inside and out, and to date, there has never been anything I wanted to do on a Mac that I couldn't do. So don't worry about that. They can be more expensive, but not necessarily. I use both systems, but I use a Mac when I have a choice. It can be a personal style thing, much like Nikon/Canon. Either one will get the job done but after using both you'll know which fits you best.
Bottom line, you've got everything you need but may find you need a little more RAM.

After reading the replies, I think my first focus will be monitor and printer calibration. This is something I should have done already for scanning and printing my film images.
I'll probably also add an extra gig or two, couldn't hurt, and as was pointed out, isn't all that expensive.

I think your setup is fine as it is, a bit more ram is useful if you want to have a lot of photographs or other applications open at the same time but 1 gig is perfectly ok..
I would say don’t bother with a raid system modern disks are very fast and perfectly adequate for what you want to do. Performance gains would be minimal and you would just be doubling the chances of a disk problem.
I would however advise you to definitely buy an external disk to back up your data. These are very cheap easy to fit and with usb 2 or Firewire are very fast too. Just using the software in windows you can simply set up automated backups to the disk, say every evening.
You can also (and should) back up you data using the dvd burner that you have. With the large files you will have from the D200 you will soon have a large amount of data. Having regular automated backups is so important with precious data like this, crashes, disk failures etc always happen at the worst time!

Given that your system is certainly good enough to get going (better than mine), I'd suggest spending your first dollars to do what's needed to backup files. Once you download to the computer and re-format the CF card, you've only got one copy of your pictures. And it's sitting at risk on your hard drive. It may never have happened to you, but these things really do fail over time.
There are different theories on the best backup method, but I'm personally happy with hooking up a large hard drive via a USB connection, and backing up to that regularly. I don't care about speed, since I run the backup at night. I figure with a copy of everything on two separate drives, the chances of both failing are pretty slim. Plus, having one outside the box is comforting. When it's close to full, I put it aside and start another. With it getting almost no use, I figure it's unlikely to fail.
I back up the odd special project to DVD too, but as the files get bigger, DVD's don't really hold all that much (and they don't last forever either), and the second, external hard drive is just so much easier to do.

>what was so wrong with the D70 that you didn't like?
The local Best Buy store had a D70 on display that was tethered down, one day while browsing through the store I decided to play with it for a minute. The first, and probably the biggest thing that turned me off was the really tiny viewfinder compared to my N80. I also didn't like the feel of it, kind of feels like a cheap plastic toy. The last thing was that I wanted a vertical grip option. I have the MB-16 for my N80, and I leave it on 99% of the time, it just feels more comfortable in my hands, especially with my larger lenses.
For a long time I was considering the D100, but when I heard the rumors about the D200, I decided to wait. We'll have a better idea in a day or so, but I think waiting for the D200 will be worth it. In the meantime, my N80 has continued to serve me just fine, and after I purchase the D200, I plan to keep my N80 for those times when I want to use good old-fashioned film!
