I have been doing video for almost 2 years now and currently edit on my father's old ultrabook (i7 quad, 8gb RAM, integrated graphics). Its fine and rendering times are ok, but I recently began toying around with After Effects and the computer begins to lag behind.
I have more or less 1000 dollars to blow and I found a Dell XPS 8900 for around that price. I checked the specs sheet and it seemed really good.
An i7 6700 Quad-Core processor, 16GB of RAM expandable to 32GB, 2TB 7200rpm drive and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 with 4GB of RAM.
I don't shoot in 4k in my spare time and when they ask me to, I'm not the one editing the footage.
Is this good enough and fast enough? If not, any recommendations for a PC or a laptop is greatly appreciated.
