Why don't you test your current system to see how it is performing with our Premiere Pro BenchMark (PPBM)?
As it sometimes takes a while to get the results posted just post the results in the Output.csv here.
Thanks Bill. Will do - I have speecy file ready - once you approve the
account on your site, I'll download and run the test!

What hardware should I upgrade?

That error means that your results are not the same place that the vbs script file is located. Either move the Statistics.vbs file to your export location, or CUT (do not copy) and paste the exported files to the project folder.
And how do I get those to you the next step was to run those VBS files and they're not opening...

You did not run the second MPEG2-DVD CPU only test.
You can see that there is no "MPEG2-DVD test_1.m2v" file in your listing.
Great! I missed that part - done now - here is a link to the output.csv file: Dropbox - Output.csv
Bill- thank you for taking time to help me through this and creating this test. I can only imagine the countless number of people you have helped!
Congratulations, I received the files with your submission and did not need the Dropbox.
Here are your results in case anyone else is following this thread
"606","310","2122","1925", Premiere Version:, 188.8.131.52
- The first number "606" is the time it takes for our Premiere benchmark to write out (export) a large file to your project disk. Your system badly flunked this test with 61 MB/sec. Examining your Speccy file it is evident that you have no SATA disks directly connected, all your storage devices except the C: drive are USB devices and that vintage motherboard only has USB2 ports which are totally useless. Get some disk drives.
- The second number is the H.264 export time for the highly complex 7-layer with some 4K media. This is the only score that I would consider reasonable for a 4-core (8-thread) i7-860 with no overclocking and no GPU acceleration (see below).
- The third number is the MPEG2-DVD export timeline with GPU hardware acceleration and this is the worst score I have ever seen and shows your GTX 660 Ti GPU is not being used. You have to enable it. I am guessing but suspect that you should have a result less than 200 seconds.
- The fourth number is a CPU only result of the export of the same timeline as #3 above and since there is such a difference between result 3 and 4 I suspect that you have other processes going on in the CPU that are unrelated to running Premiere and stealing CPU cycles. Also from your Speccy information it appears that your CPU temperature may be running high "average" 73°C. You might want a realtime CPU temperature monitor to check that out. If it is running that high at ambient you have a heatsink problem and that could be throttling back you CPU under full load.
- Here are my numbers for an non-overclocked well-tuned I7-2600K with a single very fast disk drive and a GTX 660. "228","340","45","1089"
If after making these low cost improvements you are not satisfied then it is a major upgrade.
You are the recipient of many, many hours of work and I just want to say that I cannot do this for everyone
BILL! I cannot thank you enough for your time. I installed a sata drive (7200) and have enabled my graphics card in the cuda file in Premiere Pro. These 2 things have made editing a breeze. I added about 20 clips to the timeline about 7 layers deep on FULL resolution and it's smooth with no hiccups. I'm going to re-run the tests this weekend and see my new improved numbers!!!!
