I've been browsing over the forum a few times in the past and have just signed up after frustration with skipping video while I'm trying to edit.
I'm hoping some of you can help me out with my PC and see if I can get it running smoothly. I am currently editing video from my GoPro Hero 3 black. I'm only recording 1080p at 24FPS. I'm using powerdirector 11 and when opening the vids, I have the preview screen set at medium (AKA blury!!!) and it is skipping like mad and freezing all the time.
Occasionally I have had simple playback skip a little as well.
What do you think of my PC? should this be up to the task of editing HD video from my Go Pro using Cyberlink Power Director 11?.....let alone when I want to start recording 60FPS or 2.7kp30/4k

I'm considering a new install of Win 7 64bit, but thought I would get some advice here on the rest of it before I do that.
