    Opinion about the HP Elite 7300 Microtower

    thomasjv Level 1

      Hi everyone,


      I am thinking about buying a new PC using Premiere Elements. At the moment version 9, but a guess I will have to buy version 10 to use it as a 64 bit application, am I right?


      I'm from the Czech Republic, and they offer here a PC with quite good features for a quite good price, but I don't know, if it will be good for editing AVCHD video with the program I stated.


      Here are the specs:


      Processor: Intel Core i7 2600, 3,4 GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, Turbo boost 3,8 GHz, 95W

      Memory: 4x4GB DDR3 1333MHz

      Chipset: Intel H67 Express

      Graphic Card: Nvidia GeForce GT545 3GB

      Storage: 1000GB 7200RPM, SATA II

      OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

      Power Supply: 300W


      1xPCI Express x16, 3x PCI Express x1, 1x Mini PCi, 4x USB 2,0, 2x USB 3,0, 1x DVI, 1x RJ-45, I have no idea what Motherboard is in there, can't find it anywhere...


      Price: +-1000 USD


      Now is my question for anybody who knows something about PC's. Do you reccomend this PC for video editing? What is good, what is bad, what is missing? At some discussions they say a 300W power supply is not good at all and the PC will logicly be slow or bad. What is your opinion?


      Thanks anybody a lot! Thomas
