Welcome to the forum!

Fusion is rather fast as it's a full frame and not scanline in the way it renders, however that means the more ram the better performance of course.
My suggestions would be a single CPU with the best video card you can afford and the most ram you can fit on your system. It's really that simple and a system like that (laptop aside) is rather affordable and readily available these days.

I run my fusion on a i7 2.7 with nvidia 670 with 4gb ram and Fusion fly's on that.

i've been there as well..
laptops are not cheap, but quite affordable.. ie simple Dell Inspiron on i7 is doing good. got some chocolate made in fu, HD, 15sek a frame ;)

to summarize:
The more RAM the merrier, even in GPU. If doing lots of compo work - a fast drive (RAID or SSD) for the footage / Disk Cache. Got myself an SSD and it made a difference.

cheers

Hello, I'm a Mac user with an iMac i7 3.5 Ghz quad with 16GB of RAM and a NVidia GeForce GTX 775M (2GB) and Mac Book Pro Retina 2.6GHz i7 with 8GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024MB. I read the post from the BMD CEO that said he wanted to have the Mac version of Fusion 7 asap so he did not have to use the VM emulator on his Mac. But the first thing I see when I download the user-manual is that virtualisation is not supported and - sure enough - I am unable to import any footage at all. I am currentley using the MBP R while on the road. Will I have the same problem with my iMac? I am loath to invest in a windows computer with so much invested in Macs if a Mac version of the software might be available....soon(?) I am hoping someone is able to use Fusion 7 on a Mac with VM just as Grant Petty is apparently doing and can tell me what is their set-up. Many thanks in advance!

I just found posts in other threads that suggest Boot Camp should work. So I am trying that route & will keep the board posted!

And yes, you really want as much RAM as possible. Fusion uses it to cache renders and it can really improve performance massively - up to keeping a complete (short) project in RAM.

Cheers,
