Hello -


I am trying to use my imac to create video in FCPX, but find it is really slow and laggy - not just during rendering, but for import, editing, etc.


My workflow consists of primarily GoPro 3 clips.


My iMac specs are as follows:


24-inch, Early 2008

Processor  2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory  4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Graphics  ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB

Software  OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)

1tb drive with 902 gb Free


Should this Mac be able to run error and lag free?


Do I need to upgrade?


Thanks for your advice.



Mac OS X (10.7.4)
