I'm new to the video editing industry and my job requires me to start learning about this (trainer for mid-size retail company). We just purchased the following machine and will be setting it up next week and will be using it for Camtasia and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. I was curious if the power supply is going to be sufficient because from my research online it looks like I might be cutting it close.
Compaq Elite 8000 - 320W stock power supply
Intel i7-3770 processor
1TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive
12GB ram (4GB stock - added two more 4GB chips)
Quadro 2000D video card - 67 watt wax power draw
I read that if I've got too much for the power supply the computer will either not turn on or you will reduce the life of the power supply (by over-working it) and potentially damage other hardware. That is my biggest concern and I wonder if I should upgrade the power supply now and not run the risk.
