We are an organization that creates video productions for deaf children and deaf adults and are seeking to obtain the best workstation possible to handle Adobe Premier Pro (CS5). Please advise what PC workstation specs is considered best at the lowest price possible. (We are non-profit and have a limited budget.)
We do a lot of editing tasks such as transitions, graphics, captions, tracking green screen, virtual set configurations, etc. So we need a quality performance system.
We are looking into the HP Z620, but not sure if that is the best for the price. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
The workflow listed could require either the desktop or workstation platform depending on the media and complexity. CS5 also does not have the best performance compared to CC2014 for many codecs. From the sounds of it the budget will limit you more than the configuration options. The X99 workstation would be the best choice even less than ideal configuration with the upgradability. However the 2.5K range is going to likely put you in the Desktop platform which means the 4790K and 32GB of ram with a 970GTX video card. Those would be your primary specs to start with.
