Please give me advice for buying a new PC to use with Movie Studio Platinum 12.0 was created by dennisjackson

Hi, I was wondering if you could give me advice for buying a new PC? I will use it mainly for editing and rendering videos with Movie Studio Platinum 12.0.

Is there a computer system you recommend that's less than $1200? I currently use a 10 year old sony vaio laptop. I think just about anything new at this point would be a serious upgrade.

I found one on newegg.com for $625. From what I've read in the forums, it appears to have what I need.

www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=9SIA65E5F14692

Do you think this would work?

If not, do you have any suggestions? I'm looking to buy on amazon or newegg.

thanks,
Dennis

Hi Dennis

Don't buy the computer you have linked in your message - way too old!!!

Don't buy the cheapest thing you can find - this is an investment for many years, so you should be spending as much as you can afford.

If you are going to buy a new computer, I recommend you also upgrade to Vegas Movie Studio 15 Platinum.
This new version will work faster with modern computer Graphics Cards.


Use the Power Search function on NewEgg and select these types of components.

CPU Models
I recommend Intel i7 or AMD Ryzen 7 - most CPUs in these series are perfect for Video Editing.

Graphics Cards
Nvidia GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580

Storage
If you can find a PC that has an SSD and HDD, they are the best.
However, most budget computers will only have a HDD.

Operating System
Only look at Windows 10

Here are some good examples of what you can find:

Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems.
Peace :)

Good suggestions from Derek. Don't forget though that if you are moving from a laptop to a desktop you will probably need to allow for a monitor within your budget if you don't already have one. Derek and the Chief provided some good advice on selecting a monitor in this thread Cheers, Robbie
