Another newbie would appreciate some advice on specs for new pc please.
Until I get a digital camcorder in the not too distant future I have lots of VHS tapes to put on CD/DVD. Discovered Win movie maker a while ago and have been using that with a capture card. Am unable to use the trial version of Adobe Premiere Elements as my Athlon 1.4GHZ CPU doesn't support SSE (whatever that is), so it's time for a new pc.
Until now most of the stuff I've done has only been about 15mins
maximum, and I need to know if 250GB is sufficient for about an hour of video. Also is it ok to use onboard graphics or should I get a low-end card as it's just for the video. Any helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for a great website, I've picked up lots of useful info.
