    I've found a few good things sorting through Google etc. Didn't
    really find a web site with accumlated XP audio/video tips.

    My audio/video apps include:

    SONAR 2.2 (going to upgrade to 3.0)
    Sound Forge 5.0
    CD Architect 5.0
    Vegas Video 3.0

    My h/w is M-Audio Delta 66.
    Athlon 1800+ with 512 MB DDR2100 RAM on an Epox Mobo of some sort.

    Running OK on Win98SE for several years but system stability has
    recently taken a nose-dive so I'm thinking about making the big move
    to XP.

    I am willing to get a new motherboard and since I've started doing
    some desktop video I might even consider a dual CPU system because
    rendering for SVCD takes a ton of time.

    Suggestions/links/references welcome.

    Thanky.

    Wow, I feel for you.
    You'll notice a big improvement over 98.

    These sites have some good tips.

    And Steinburg has some tips in their Knowledge base section.

    I did not disable ACPI under XP and everything is working fine; in
    fact better than fine, I recommend leaving it enabled.

    Gary,

    Besides the great sites already mentioned, have a look at my three-part
    series from Keyboard magazine. It's fourth in the list on my Articles page:
