I have been learning premiere pro cs6 on s gateway 3.3ghz i32120 6GB dual core computer DX4860 UB32P gateway. Now that I am getting into color correction etc things move very slow. I don't have a lot of funds at the time ($1000ish to spare) I shoot using Canon DSLR in raw. My videos are only 2-5 min long promo videos. Usually have 30 or so 30 second clops that get cut down for the 2-5 min video. I do not see getting into after effects until next year.
For the next 6 months of working on these and learning will I get decent results upgrading parts of my current setup, or just start a new build?
I would go with a new build.
What is your hard drive setup?
I would suggest moving to a Haswell 4770 and Z87 systemboard. You would likely want to look at a 650Ti or 760GTX video card as well.
