I'm wondering if someone can help me with a hardware question. I just want to make sure I don't make a mistake since I'm planning to spend quite a bit on a new machine. I'm looking to purchase a fairly fast machine...something in which to edit video with as few hiccups as possible...so I was checking out single core 3.4 ghz processors. I noticed the processing speed of dual core systems is less, often times I see them at 1.6 or 1.8 ghz and I understand this is because they share the load. So if I'm buying professional video editing software with requirements of a 2.4 ghz processor, will the 1.6 ghz dual core suffice? (as long as the software can utilize both processors)
Thanks for helping me understand it all.
