This is good one because in this system NVIDIA GTX760 192 - bit 3 GB (1 x HDMI, 1 x DP, 2 x DVI) graphics card and that's great!
After Effects is not a video editing program. If you're asking about a computer for editing, you should be asking in the Premiere Pro forums (or the hardware forums).
However, since you posted in the After Effects forum, I'm guessing you also want to know how it works for After Effects.
8 GB of RAM is pretty small for After Effects. I would suggest 16 GB at the very least.
Processing power is also very important. I would get a more powerful processor if possible.
The GPU doesn't matter much for After Effects (details here: GPU (CUDA, OpenGL) features in After Effects), but it does matter for some third-party plugins and it DEFINITELY matters for Premiere.
If you're looking to buy hardware for After Effects or Premiere, it would be a good idea to watch this event where Adobe team members talk about how After Effects and Premiere use system resources: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/event/index.cfm?event=set_registered&id=2490687&loc=en_us
Szalam's right about asking on the Premiere forum, and he's right about the lack of RAM & speedy processors for AE.
Don't be surprised to learn that your very light on storage for video editing. HD files take up a lot of drive space. And just a single drive may not be able to keep up with multiple layers of video in Premiere.
So other than a small amount of memory, slow processors and not much storage, I'd say that machine's just about perfect.
thanks for your reply. I know that After Effect is not a video editing program, I just happened to post exactly the same thread on Adobe Premiere Pro and here too.
I have heard that I should get an i7 processor but it would go way out of my budget, I've tried to build a computer too but it's still out of budget. Do you think that i5 will handle After Effect? Rendering time is not a problem for me because all I have is time. What comes to the RAM is that I'm going to upgrade it sometime but for now I can handle only 8GB, what kind of issues this will cost me?
thanks for your reply! I can upgrade the RAM later and I can buy external storage. Processor is slow but it fits for my budget.
Do you think that i5 will handle After Effect?
Yes. See the system requirements for After Effects.
The faster, the better when it comes to processors. But you can get a lot done with lower-end hardware. It just takes more time. Once you get your setup set up, I'd suggest going through this: optimizing for performance: Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects
For now I can handle only 8GB, what kind of issues this will cost me?
RAM previews will be significantly shorter and may take significantly longer to be created. Renders may take longer.
