Graphic card for Adobe Premiere Video Editing?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have always played not so demandhing games such as warcraft, starcraft and whatnot.
However, i recently got into video editing (Adobe premiere to be exact) and im looking for something more powerful.
I am not sure what kind of power i would need for to run adobe premiere smoothly. Now i am just an amateur video editor getting familiar with the program.
Videos are laggy and processing time while editing videos just takes way too much time.

Not very restricted by budget but i do not want to spend more than +-$250

I am running dual 24in monitors

Any recommendations/ suggestions would be appreciated
Thank you

My current setup.

Your GTX 460 should be OK, just check if you have CUDA/MPE enabled under Premiere Pro.
The problem lies in other places:
1. RAM: definetely get 8GB more. It's the biggest problem here.
2. CPU: Phenom II doesn't have SSE4.1+ instructions which Premiere Pro uses to speed up things.
If you don't want to spend big money, please check if your motherboard would work with FX-8120 or better with FX-8320 (or maybe even with FX-6300?) and get one of them because FXs are SSE4.1+ enabled...
3. Disk drives: you have 1x SSD and 1x HDD. Get 1x HDD more if you can.

So, in your place, I'd first check if MPE is enabled w/ CUDA. Then I'd add 8GB RAM.
If now it's still not up to your standards, then I'd think seriously about changing CPU and maybe mobo also.
Adding another HDD is the last thing - if you have no money for that, no problem. RAM & CPU are bigger problems wink.gif

Hope this helps smile.gif

Great advice, I'd also make sure you're not running any other applications in the background or during your work with Premiere. Look up the "nvida hack for premiere" to be able to utilize the gpu for rendering. This will help. It's not a true hack by the way, just a way of adding your card to the list. Your graphics are fine.

Especially Antivirus and Firewall apps are Premiere-killers wink.gif

Thanks to Adobe guys - no more adding things biggrin.gif
What someone needs to do is simply delete the "cuda_supported_cards.txt" file from PPro folder and that's all thumb.gif

oh wow i had no idea ram could be an issue
since when was 8gb ram not enough? lol
just ordered a 16gb total ram
I will think about FX-8320 and mobo as well.
I have never heard of SSE 4.1 anyways....
