I'm looking at purchasing a Dell Inspiron 660s for running Premiere Elements 11. Here are the system specs:
Intel Quad-Core i5-3330S running @2.7 GHz, with a 3.2GHz max-turbo frequency
Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit (PrE 11 will be running 64-bit as well)
8GB of RAM
1TB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
I will be doing consumer-level editing with only AVCHD video. I do not need the power to run After Effects or anything like that, just Premiere Elements 11, 64-bit. I would like the program to be very fluent, smooth, and fast, but I do not need overkill, as I am only doing consumer-level laid-back AVCHD editing, keying, rendering, soundtrack mixing, etc.
Please let me know if these specs will allow me to smoothly run Adobe Premiere Elements 11 to fit my needs (nothing more, nothing less).
If something here is too much or needs to be upgraded, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
This looks like an excellent machine for editing AVCHD on, Mr. Filmeffects.
In fact, you could probably run After Effects on it too if you want to.
A second hard drive for your media and project files can always give you an added boost. But, with today's systems, it's not always necessary.
Thank you for your help. It's most appreciated!
