I work in a government system and am a Mac/Final Cut person. The county provides "approved" computers packaged for purchase. I'm making the jump to PC's and premiere and need some advice if the computers they have bundled will work.
The highest option is a Lenovo Thinkstation 310. Here are the specs:

Intel i7-6700 Processor (8m cache, up to 4.0 ghz
16gb DDR4 213 mhz UDIMM
256 SSD Harddrive and a 1 TB 7200 hard drive
NVidia Quadro K620 2gb (DVI-DP
23.8" Monitor- VGA + HDMI + DP

I need to know if this is butch enough to run Premiere CC 2015 well. We do not edit anything too crazy. Work mostly in 1080P although often have different formats on the same timeline (HDV, Mpeg 4, Xdcam ). I would also like to have the CPU Monitor and an additional NTSC television/monitor for playback.

Will this set-up work? Any help/advice would be appreciated.

There are, of course, a lot of variables. It should work. I personally would bump RAM to 32GB.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2015.02 (as of 6/2016)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.

My advice.

Forget laptops for video editing and go for desktops which are cheaper, more powerful, adaptable and easier to add on the necessary peripherals.

Like.... extra HDDs, powerful graphic cards, I/O cards eg BM Intensity , memory sockets, audio cards.......

Sorry if I was vague, but it is a desktop.

Will this graphics card allow for a cpu screen to display Premiere as well as playback on a separate TV/monitor?

Those oktoberfest ladies probably won't but you can output video from Premiere with a normal graphics card.

So this set-up should be able to handle premiere well?

BTW- that pic is my "click bait". More people might be inclined to answer my questions. Hahaha
