Hey there. I'm wanting to edit video and hoping I can use my current computer to get by. I really like Adobe premiere but I'm finding that the actual process is very tedious because my computer is clearly not powerful enough. This is for personal use so I don't care if rendering the final project takes a while, I'm really just wanting to get my computer to be more fluid during the actual editing process without constantly loading and hesitating. Obviously all shiny new equipment would be ideal but I'm on a budget, so maybe some of you computer geniuses can let me know if my current computer has any potential at all to get me going. here's what I'm working with: stock hp 6813w . It has 6gb ddr3 ram
1tb hard drive
Amd quad core 3.1 ghz processor
I think the graphics card is just integrated.

Let me know what you guys think. Any chance to make this puppy powerful?

There is no certain number. Basically I was going to see what you guys say it takes to make this thing work well for editing and then weigh out my options and see if it's worth it/possible to upgrade or if I need to just start from scratch

TDP of this Phenom is 125W but motherboard limit is 95W so not good.

Ok so with that processor would the editing process be smooth? And so far what I'm understanding is that the cpu and gpu are the only things that will benefit me correct? Nothing else? Ssd, more ram, anything else that might boost?

Say the software for rendering you use to see system requirements..Today min 8GB is recommended.Yes you will be much faster with SSD if Drive C: is on it.

If I wanted to use 2 monitors would that be something that an upgraded gpu would help accommodate or is that something that would just be a strain on the whole system causing me to lose performance?

I has never deal with rendering so cannot say everything about performance and upgrade before seeing the system requirements.

 

Thank you!

What exactly is your budget for this?  There are professional graphics cards and gaming "Consumer" graphics cards.  The professional versions aim for accuracy at the cost of speed, with gaming cards, the reverse is true.  Those professional cards are aimed more at people who use CAD software and are supported by Nvidia/AMD directly.  An add-in graphics card can help with rendering, as can a good CPU.  For the CPU, I'd go with an FX-8300 series if you want AMD, or an i7 for Intel.  That computer you have now is old, you really should consider a new PC.
