    CS4 The effect of 6GB not 12GB Ram

    dave rogers123

      I am planning on buying a new computer for Video editing amongst other things I would like to know if Adobe Premier pro cs4 is likely to crash or stall from only having 6GB Ram available when editing 1280 x 720 MP4 files and compiling png image sequences into animations( a couple of thousand images ).


      Will having 6GB rather than 12GB  mean that it will just take longer to render out to H264 or create a DVD or will it prevent me from rendering completly on occasion.


      Computer spec is..


      Motherboard Asus p6Tdeluxv2

      Processor Intel i7 920, D0 SLBEJ S1366, Bloomfield, 2.66 GHz overclocked to 3.8 GHz

      CPU cooler Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme 1366RT 120mm

      Ram TR3X6G1600C8D -12GB (6x2GB) Corsair Dominator DDR3, PC3-12800 (1600), 240 Pin, Non-ECC Un buffered CAS 8, DHX, XMP
