    Question about hardware pecking order

    82ElshamRoad

      These are my current specs:

       

      Intel Core 2 Duo  E8400 @ 3.0 GHz

      8.0 gigs of RAM

      Windows Vista 64-bit

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

      Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA, 7200 RPM (for media only)

       

      Looking at that list, what needs to be upgraded first, and what can temporarily remain, to edit AVCHD effectively in Premiere Pro CS4? I suspect #1 on the list is a faster processor, but what specifically should I be looking for? Is a quad fast enough, and if so - which one? I've heard about i7 but don't know much about the nuances of these things.

       

      Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
