What is needed for a good video editing computer?
Hey guys, I am new here, saw the site and decided to register.
I have a question. Im looking to buy a new computer, but I need a very fast one, for video editing so there will be no lag.
I am a gamer and have a Hauppauge HD PVR, but the video always lags while recording. Then when I try to take it into Sony Vegas, it also lags there. I can not watch the video cleanly, so it makes it hard to edit.
So which is the best computer to get for this? Also, what kind of processor would I need and all that? (I know nothing about computers, so any help is appreciated.)
Thanks for you time guys. Also Im not sure if this belongs here, so if it is moved, maybe a MOD can contact to which thread it was moved too? Thank you!
