My current laptop isn't handling PrPro 2015. Its brand new i7, 12GB RAM, but its not playing video smoothly in the editing process. Looking at buying something more substantial.
Is it true that High performance GPU is better than massive amounts of RAM? Dose PrPro only take advantage of 10-12GB of Ram and the rest is essentially useless?
The price of some of the high performance gaming desktops I was looking at is between $2000 and $4000, really hoping for some advise before spending so much. As an example; will the specs of the desktop below help me? Will it make the program work faster and not freeze up and skip in the editing process?
What are you guys running? Any recommendations?
