Hit Film requirements and a new computer

Hi,
I was looking at another computer. The processor is a •AMD Athlon II X2-245 processor
2.9GHz, 2MB Cache I see the AMD Phenom is for the recommended processor. Is there reall that big of a difference between the 2?? I need to know before I buy this computer. Let me know. I want hitfilm to run without the video kind of stoping at times! Thanks, Chad

  • HitFilm runs primarily on the graphics card, not the CPU. You'll want to pay very close attention to what graphics card that machine has, and how it compares to the recommendations.

    It comes with a hd 4200, but I can upgrade it to a better card for under 70 dollars!! What other cards are good to use other the ones listed on the Hitfilm ultimate requirements? Thanks!!

    Thanks Simon for the info. I got a laptop that I have hitfilm on and the only problem I have had so far is that the video kind of drags and not playing back smooth! I cant upgrade the laptop video card.. I found this video card and it is the same brand Dell uses in the computer I'm looking at.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129185 The computer is going to cost be a little under 500.00 us dollars with the monitor and all the goods. I belive the Card I looked at (The link above) should run HF with no problem! The computer I just sold had XP on it...... :P drove me nuts trying to use xp anymore! Thanks!

    The Radeon HD 4200 is well below the minimum spec for HitFilm, and probably won't run it at all, so make sure you do upgrade the video card if you buy that machine.
    For more comprehensive video card comparisons, have a look at this chart at Tom's Hardware, and see how any card stacks up against the HitFilm minimum requirement (X1900).

    The HD4200 does run HF quit well for being what it is, just a little slugish like with V-lab. I found this card, it seems like it has all of the requirements.. http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814129185 Thanks, Chad
