    Used computer for student

    plecostomos

      Hi all,

      I'm shopping for a used system for my daughter to use for Premiere CC. She's a high school Sr. but has been interning & working with some local video producers and is having more opportunities to do free-lance editing. She's been working on the school computers, but they're not always accessible & I'd love for her to be able to work at home. We're on a very tight budget so I've been looking online for something used - most likely a former gaming setup. Any suggestions on a minimum that I should be looking for in order for her to download Premiere and start working? I'm pretty green, so be gentle. Thanks so much.

       

      Here's one currently listed at a good enough price that I could probably swing an upgrade on the video card if necessary:

      Windows 8.1 Activated

      Asrock H81 Pro BTC Mobo

      8gigs 1600mhz DDR3 Ram

      Intel g3220 Dual Core 3.0ghz CPU/intergrated Graphics

      MSI R9-270 OC Edition

      Cooler Master 600w PSU

      750gigs HDD
