Avermedia NV300 hardware requirements


Hi all,

I recently purchased an Avermedia NV3000 video surveillance camera capture card and software and presently have it running on an Asus P5PE-VM motherboard with a 2.66GHz Celeron processor and 512MB of RAM.

I only plan to have 4-6 cameras in operation eventually.

Avermedia recommends a P4 3.2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM, but I assume that this is for a system with all 16 cameras attached.

Can I get away with my present or a faster Celeron for my reduced camera load requirements?

I am running the NV5000 kit on a P3 800mhz with 256 megs of memory, and didn't have any performance problems yet with 2 cams. It all depends on the FPS settings I guess. Also make sure your hard drives are fast enough.
