New to the forum. I'm getting back into video editing after taking a hiatus (about 2-3yrs) and just wondering if my pc is up for the task (SD and HD editing). I plan on doing weddings as well as sports videos and using the Canon 7D.
Here are the specs that I know of..
Intel quad core 2.4ghz (q6600) Core2
3GB RAM (actually 4, but only 3 can be used)
2 7200RPM hard drives
Geforce 512mb video card (don't know the model off hand)
Blu Ray writer
XP Pro 32bit
Premiere Pro CS4 & AE CS4
450 power supply
I believe the MoBo is an Asus of some type
I'm thinking to get me up to speed I could overclock it to 3ghz, add a fan, upgrade the power supply, upgrade the OS to Win7 Ult 64bit, crank up the ram to 6-12GB. Invest in a decent video card.
Or should I just build me a brand new pc from scratch?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
