    Upgrading from dual to quad core

    Brushman1000 Level 1

      My camera uses AVCHD h.264 I have grown tired of my dual core PC not editing this well (working with PrE9) so I am planning to change it for a better one, I can't afford the i5 or i7 computers, but have found this one (below) would I see a big difference from the dual core...

       

      How would these specs be for non-professional home editing of this format?

       

      Dell Inspron 560 MT

       

      Intel core 2 quad core Q8300 Processor (2.50GHz, 4mb cache, 1333MHz FSB)

       

      Windows 7 64 Bit

       

      4BG Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at -1 MHz

       

      1000GB Sata hard drive (7200RPM)

       

      512 NVIDIA Geforce G310

       

      DVD +/- RW Drive (read/write CD & DVD) with DVD Burn software

       

      Thanks
