Ive had a quick scout about but I cant seem to find a definitive answer to the question of which version of 64 bit Windows 7 is the best option for Premiere Pro? I didnt want to waste money by purchasing Ultimate only to 'tune' out most of the services - ala black viper's 'barebones' setup, to get the best from my limited hardware setup
I am bulding the following simple system for a Non internet connected workstation for exclusive SD editing purposes, amd 64, 8Gb, GTX550 TI, 160 Gb Velociraptor primary drive, 2 Tb Assets drive and a 1 Tb output drive. I will be running production premium.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers guys, Les
Win7 Home Premium is enough, but if you ever consider upping memory beyond 16 GB or using network services for a home network or backing up to a NAS, then you are better off with Win7 Pro. The price difference is small, so Pro looks like the better, more future proof option.
Thanks for the tip!
