Are these decent specs for AMV producing?

Postby ObscureLight » Wed Dec 10, 2008 10:20 pm

hmm im new and I want to try to work with video editing just wondering if my specs are decent enough.

Windows Vista 64bit
AMD Phenom(tm) 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) 2.50GHz
6GB RAM
750Gig Storage (I also got 2 TB of external storage X_X)
NVIDIA Geforce 9800 GT - 2.5MB memory + 512MB dedicated gaming memory

Any other specs I need to list for a diagnosis? Also how do you check what video capture card you have? D: I believe my comp came with one but I have no clue how to check

You actually don't need that much of a computer to do video editing (and a video card doesn't really help out with editing...save for 3d graphics rendering and a few avisynth plugins)
a 2GHz single core with 512MB ram was more than enough to run premiere pro 1.5 a few years back (when I edited on my laptop)

I suppose it depends on your editing software.
