I'm currently looking into a new processor and motherboard for my PC. Currently, I'm running on a AMD processor. I've read about more speed/reliability when using an Intel i7, but, I'm looking for more specifics on what to buy that'll run well with my system and current components. Iv'e noticed the overall system has been unstable when running Premiere/AE.
Below's my current specs. Any help would be appreciated.
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor
Memory: 32768MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 32732MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Display Memory: 4095 MB
Dedicated Memory: 3072 MB
you can look thru the other posts here as well for more up to date hardware recommendations. we would need to know a budget and/or how much faster than the fx-8350 you want it to be, to recommend anything specific. recommended specs depend on the project, 2k vs 4k, media, how many effects, etc, etc. currently AE is almost all cpu, and the gtx 980 you have may be plenty for premiere, depending on media.
