Premiere CC 2018 - Help choosing the best cpu/ram/graphics combination from PC offers

This might be too complicated question.

After reading up on various PC specifications, I am just more confused.

 

I previously had Acer S680G

i5-750 2.66GHz

4GB DDR3. 640GB.

Fx 380 512 mb – Graphics card.

Premiere CC 2018 worked ok, a little slugish but done the job.

The PC died after doing a lot of work over years, got my monies worth.

 

I have about $150 to replace the old Acer S680G.

Sticking with win7 and Premiere CC 2018 for now.

 

Regarding refurbished box:

Hard drive space is not a consideration. Win10 is not a requirement.

(We still have the old Acer S680G HD loaded with win7)

If the new computer has at least 4GB memory and accepting slots.

(We also have 2x 2GB Memory sticks from Acer S680G)

For a minimum of 8GB memory in total.

 

 

 

 

If someone is up with CPU/RAM and Graphics I have a question:

 

I would like your advice on the new PC CPU/Graphics card combination.

Regarding the Acer Veriton X4630G with Intel HD Graphics 4600.

The maximum shared Vram Memory is about 2GB, but said to be of lesser value then onboard versions?

 

Is there anything else around this price range with better performance when used for the purpose of video color grading and associated editing?

 

These are all the options in Available Graphics, some of which is outside budget.

Firepro V3750

FirePro V4900

GeForce 210

Geforce 7600 Gs

Geforce 8800 Gt

GeForce 9300

Geforce 9400 Gt

Geforce 9500 Gt

Geforce G210

Geforce Gtx 260

Geforce Gtx 275

Geforce Gtx 460

HD GRAPHICS

Integrated/On-Board Graphics

Intel 4 Series Graphics

Intel HD 530 Graphics

INTEL HD 6000 GRAPHICS

Nvs 300

Quadro 2000

Quadro Fx 1500

Quadro K2000

Quadro Nvs 295

Quadro Nvs 420

Radeon HD 8490 / R5 235X Oem

Radeon R5 340

Radeon Xpress 200 Series

 

Here is the page with PC box choices: https://www.reboot-it.com.au/used-computers/

I am looking at around $150 boxes, and could do with any direction you can offer.

Hence the question about Acer Veriton X4630G with Intel HD Graphics 4600.

 

Am I better off with GeForce 9500 GT, 512MB of memory on board or another option?

This Shared Memory is very hard to compare without any exsperience!

Peter Dry,

You are going to have a very poor experience in editing with such an underpowered computer that simply does not meet system requirements. If it were me and I could not afford a new computer immediately, I would spend time transcoding any H.264 footage to 720P HD footage using the ProRes LT codec or equivalent. A separate USB 3 connected drive or an internal drive that spins at 7200 rpm could work. 

 

The newer computer you have spec'd is not much more impressive, I'm afraid. You may want to save up some more money and buy a proper system that meets or exceeds system requirements so that you can edit with a decent workflow.

Hope the info helps. In the meantime, I'll move this post to the hardware forum.

Thanks,
Kevin

Regarding my Post, two versions of the same post have been moved here?

There are issues with all posts repeatedly disapearing from forum which leads to double posts!

Premiere CC 2018 is saved in documents and installed on Harddrive.

Have lost job and have very limited money due to Corona virus.

Still need to choose PC box with above limitation.

I have moved HD with OS from one computer to another.

Obviosly the hardware needs to be compatible but other issues have been resolved in the past.

That's a good start, given your limited budget, as long as you continue to run Windows 7 and Premiere Pro CC 2018 for the foreseeable future. And if you do upgrade the GPU some time in the future for that system, do not upgrade higher than a GeForce 10 Series (Pascal) since the newer Turing GPUs require Windows 10 just to work at all.
