    Default Video editing

    Hi ,friends can anyone help me decide o buying a used pc for beginner video editing I want to be able to use premier Pro ,I like to know if the specs on this pc will do or will I have upgrade again thanks in advance.
    The PC has two 6-core CPUs (AMD Opteron 2435 @6x2.6ghz) 12 cores in total.
    16gb RAM
    600w PSU
    500gb HDD with windows 10 installed and activated. Room for 5 more hard drives (I can add more if required)
    GTX 580 gaming Graphics card - older but very powerful still (similar performance to a gtx 1050)

    Default

    What a strange config... old server I guess? Seems okay on paper if the price is worth it. As far as I know premiere still doesn't really play nice with dual CPU configurations and it also didn't like AMD much though that seems to have turned in recent years so I doubt it's "optimal" but if that's not your main concern I reckon it'll handle its own alright. Definitely if you stick to Full HD and don't use too many GPU dependant effects. Premiere is still largely CPU oriented.
    RAM is a bit low for a PC but should be enough to get you going. I wouldn't pay more than 200 for a config like that though and would rather look for something more recent and less weird.
    The cats are watching us...
