  1. processor at good speed .. core 2 duo & above
    sufficient ram .. 2 GB +
    Graphics card ..
    HDD with RAID(0 or 1) setup or more speed like 10000 rpm(like WD raptor)
    64 bit operating system(if you are going for more than 4 GB ram)
    a good video editing/encoding software with multithreading support
    if you go for high end models the you will get more performance..
  2. i have an e6300 core 2 duo now and it lags quite a bit.willa q6600 or q6700 do the trick?
  3. of course they will do better with 2 more additional cores than ..

    but its better to go for i7 or i5 as you are dealing with video stuffs..
  4. what about the phenom ii x 4.how well do they handle video encoding
  5. I use two video editing computers, both w/ 4 Gigs RAM - one a Q9400 OC'd to 3.2 Ghz and the other a Phenom II X 4 955BE OC'd to 3.6 Ghz. The Q9400 is faster vut only slightly.

    I edit 1080p (Samsung UM10) and 720p (Flip Ultra HD) mp4 files and there's no way Core 2 Duo E8400 even OC'd to 3.6 Ghz could keep up.

    In 3 months I'll probably go with either the new AMD 6core Thubans or Intel i7 860. If you're not editing or encoding HD, you're probably okay with 2 cores unless you'd rather wait 10 minutes instead of 20.
  6. ok, thanks so quad core it is i will start blueprinting a new pc
  7. I use a Intel i7 quad, 8 GB RAM, 2 Intel x25M 80 GB SSD RAID 0 and a simple Nvidia GT220 graphic card. Works like charm.
    Full HD movies edits/converts without any problems.
