I am about to buy a new computer with win 7 64 bit -and planning to move over to Vegas Movie Studio 11 from Premiere CS3. (CS3 seemed over kill for me and moving over to a win 7 64 bit would mean an expensive upgrade with Adobe.)
Would the spec below - run Vegas Movie Studio platinum well? I am an occasional video editor - usually up to 15 mins only, sound and titles mainly.
I have deliberately gone for i5 3550 processor as opposed to i7 3770, as for occassional video use and as a non gamer, the hyper threading facility didn't seem worth the extra cost, but if people think it is essential I will reconsider.
I have picked the Geforce GT 630 graphics card as it is recent mid range OEM release with 384 CUDA cores/875MHz.
