I've been told the minimal requirements for a solid Premiere Plus machine is a gaming computer with:
8GB RAM, but preferably 16
SSD: 512 GB
Is that so? I have some fiscal flexibliity, but not much; I'm out to strech my dollars to the maximum extent. I could raise my price bar, but let's start at $600. Not many sales a re going around at the monet, vyes, but we are where we are.
I have a laptop with i7 CPU, 16 GB RAM and the rest of your specs. It works well for Premiere Elements and Premiere Pro. My videos are typically less than ten minuets. Premiere Elements does not use a GPU.
CPUs on the Passmark list that score about 7000 and higher work pretty well for video editing.
Is this for Elements or Pro?
Either way HDD need to be a SSD too.
HDD is only usefull for backup.
Looking for video-editing software; my pardon, but I thought that was obvious. Are Plus and Pro the difference between image manipulation, and video editing?
I'm aiming to make talk-heavy Youtube Videos; political commentary,they could be over twenty minutes, but I'm thinking of their running around ten minutes or so, beginning.
Wasn't told that CPUs/GPUs were video-editing benchmarks.
Premiere Elements is consumer level.
Premiere Pro is professional level and only by subsciption.
Okay, I am probably aiming at Elements, given Pro is subscription, but what computer should I buy?
Whsprague, what computer should I buy? Could I get an Asus, at around $600-$700, with the specs you mentioned?
WHS is right. There are so many variations out there that it's impossible to recommend a specific computer. Even within brands and models, there are dozens of variations.
Rather, use the link to the benchmarks he posted above. For high-def video, get a processeor that rates at least 8000. For 4K video, get at least 10,000. You can easily do that for under $600 (not including your monitor(s).) Especially if you buy a Dell or HP refurbished computer, which are great values.
Get at least 1 terrabyte of storage on your hard drive. 2 TB is even better. And at least 12 gigabytes of RAM. All of which should be easily had on a refurb for under $600.
Your ASUS does not have enough SSD space or RAM for me. I think that the primary drive needs to be twice that and RAM should be at least 12. With the larger SSD, you would still need an external drive to store completed projects.
No it is a dual core. You need a quad core preferably with hyperthreading.
Low cost is always important. And that computer may work. But working well and working are not the same. That one has the HDD space and RAM for video editing. But that particular CPU is slow. https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-7500U+%40+2.70GHz&id=2863
