Can I make a solid vid-editing desktop for 800ish?

I have a monitor but, I would need to also buy windows(64-bit)

I'd be using adobe premiere pro mainly and might do some slight gaming as well but this desktop is going to primarily be for post-production.

if i'm buying the parts from newegg, can 800 give me a system that can easily handle adobe premiere?

requirements for the new adobe premiere pro:

* Intel® Core™2 Duo or AMD Phenom® II processor; 64-bit support required
* Microsoft® Windows® 7 with Service Pack 1 (64 bit)
* 4GB of RAM (8GB recommended)
* 4GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on removable flash storage devices)
* Additional disk space required for preview files and other working files (10GB recommended)
* 1280x900 display
* OpenGL 2.0–capable system
* 7200 RPM hard drive (multiple fast disk drives, preferably RAID 0 configured, recommended)
* Sound card compatible with ASIO protocol or Microsoft Windows Driver Model
* DVD-ROM drive compatible with dual-layer DVDs (DVD+-R burner for burning DVDs; Blu-ray burner for creating Blu-ray Disc media)
* QuickTime 7.6.6 software required for QuickTime features
* Optional: Adobe-certified GPU card for GPU-accelerated performance
* This software will not operate without activation. Broadband Internet connection and registration are required for software activation, validation of subscriptions, and access to online services.* Phone activation is not available.


thx for any help, also, does any one have any good system configurations?

  1. oh, and I know I'm asking a lot so, if anyone can just give me the basics on the componants for a vid-editing pc, that would be great, like I read a few times the 16gb of ram was bare minimum for this

    does it matter what mother board i get?
    what's a nice video card that can handle premiere pro well enough?
    what cpu should I get?
  2. intel i5 2400
    Z68 chipset motherboard
    2 x4 gig of RAM
    case
    dvd drive
    430 - 500 watt psu
    hard drive
    Win 7 64 bit oem

    use the onboard graphics
  3. what kinds of sdd/hardfrives would be best?
  4. If you use a motherboard with a Z68 chipset [ or z77 ] you can add a small cheap 40 gig SSD as a cache drive . Intel call this "smart response"

    and it offeres a good performance boost without the expense of a large SSD .

    The samsung F3 1 terabyte drive is still the best HDD of that capacity IMO , but WD black and seagate are both worth considering . I'd buy on price .
  5. what video card should I shoot for?
