is this PC suitable for editing? Core Duo/4GB Ram
I found this really cheap PC but I'm not sure if it can be used for editing:
Intel Core Duo E7500 2.93 Ghz
Nvidia GeForce GT220
Currently I edit my footage on a Core i5/8GB PC with a powerful graphic card (don't remember the model) but it's not my own, so I'd rather get my own.
Using AE, I realize RAM is what is mostly used during rendering, so I was wondering what if I add extra RAM to this PC, would it be a good choice for editing/post? (3x4GB=12GB)
The graphic card seems old too, should I replace it or would it do the trick?
I edit my own footage. I shoot everything ranging from commercial to documentary. I'm a hobbysit so nothing serious came out of it so far, I usually edited my own footage 720p, but would like to edit it in 1080 now. ALSO, I'm hoping to do freelance editing jobs for other people, so I might need to be able to edit 4K too. (either by proxy or not)
