Hello, I am running Adobe Master Suite on my Mac and have noticed that Premiere runs slow as if I was using my computer from five years ago. I was wondering if my graphics card is enough otherwise I will upgrade. Currently the computer has an Nvidia GeForce 9400 with 256 MBRam. Is this enough?
Here are my other computer specs:
intel duo core 2.66 GHz
4 GB memory
600 GB Drive
bus Speed - 1.07 GHz
Graphics cards have almost no performance effects on Premiere on PC's, (I do not know MAC's but I doubt that would make a difference). It more than likely is caused (secondarily) by the single disk drive and (primarily) in today's terms a weak CPU. Premiere CS4 is much more demanding that previous versions, and for instance if you are trying to edit AVCHD it is even much more CPU intensive.
