Workstations for video editing
on Apr 20, 2017 at 10:34:08 am

In the recent couple of days I realized that used PC workstation market is saturated with cheap systems . I will quote some deals. But are they any good for video Editing. If yes which processor? How much RAM? How about ssd/had drives?

Check what 300-400$ can give you.

they may work in a pinch for 1080p, but for $600 your money would go a lot farther with a ryzen 1700 system. i know several people that have tried this, buying a computer from 2006 and expecting to edit GH4 footage without proxy creation. Yea, your gonna need proxy transcoding with slow cpu and slow hd's. It's doable, just will take a long time to get everything edit ready.

the best computer there was the ivy bridge btw.
