Can I make Final Cut run HD video faster (without installing more ram if possible)? Answered

I have Final Cut Express running on my iMac version 10.4.11 with a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 1 gb of SDRAM. I use and HD cannon video camera but when I edit in FC it goes really slowly and I get the spinning rainbow a lot. I was just wondering if there is any way to make it go faster. (would more ram even help?) Thank you.

rebooting the imac before using final cut would help. You also should install more ram, and possibly a faster hard drive.
