Thread: Will this make a good video editing PC?

    Default Will this make a good video editing PC?

    Will this set up be adequate for video editing along with Adobe Premier Pro? I have a Canon XM2. Any advice would be appreciated as this represents a big investment for me.

    Looks gggreeeat ! I suggest using the larger faster drive as the system drive and putting video on the other drive. Probably will only make a small difference, but maybe worthwhile if the percieved wisdom is to be trusted.

    Just add more drives as you need them for video storage.

    My system isnt quite as powerful as yours and I have no probs at all. Definitely have PP2 running from your boot drive and store your files on the other, and defrag regularly also.
