    Default Need help on buying PC for AVCHD Editing


    I need a PC for editing multi track AVCHD HD Video (up to 2 tracks together mixed with normal DV).
    Is this good enough?

    Intel Core i5 Quad Processor i5-2500K
    Asus P8P67 Rev 3.0 Intel P67 Socket 115
    Kingston Value RAM 8 GB
    ASUS Radeon HD 6870 1 GB GDDR-5 PCI-EXPRESS
    SEAGATE Barracuda 2 TB SATA 7200 RPM
    Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5

    If you can try and go for a i7 Quad core processor. Which AVCHD the faster the processor the better. It's hard to tell which processor to get because there are many different i5 and i7 chips, some are better than others. Try a processor review website, they often have comparison charts. Obviously your budget has to be taken into account.

    Just a note about CS 5 make sure you get a 64bit operating system as CS 5 only works on a 64bit system.

    Thanks. But considering a mac, what do you get most value for money from?

    I mean do you get a PC with better specs suitable for video editing compared to an iMAC ?
