Yes. It is good, though you might want to add some more RAM. Not sure if Premier eats a lot of RAM or not. 16gb won't hurt though.

From my limited knowledge would seem fine for video editing. I guess it really depends on how intensive your video editing would be if you needed more RAM.

For gaming, depends on resolution I guess, your CPU would be fine, but the GPU should be good at 1080p.

Thinking the same as erocker more ram would be a good idea as you might try other programs too ?.. And some are ram hungry..


Maybe check on there forums nd if they don't have one email the company of the software see if they can give you a better insight.

As all so said in post #3 depending on how intensive your video editing is it might be worth thinking 2x8 sticks so it allow you to go 32GB

It'd be the same as it's still running dual channel, you'd benefit more from having 2 sticks of 8 in the long run even if it's a tad more expensive.

More rams the better, if you can afford it 2x8Gb sticks will be slightly better. Otherwise there is not much disadvantage going 4x4Gb. Consider 1866Mhz if you are going 4x4Gb.

I would prefer upgrading motherboard or graphics card by using lower CPU like 3550.
for motherboard, I can use Z77 ATX board. N670 with appropriate tweak can get decent performance. Tom's hardware recommends three models below:

Asus GTX670-DC2T-2GD5
Zotac ZT-60302-10P
Gigabyte N670OC-2GD

With encoding he would be better of with HT on the 3770

Asus7950DCII, What are your expectation with the GTX660 Ti as far as gaming? What Games?
