I have an old editing rig from my last job that I lost access to the operating system on so I need to wipe the hard drive and reinstall an operating system or should I just update and start fresh with a new build? Here are the specs:
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit CPU AMD FX-8350 35 °C Vishera 32nm Technology RAM 16.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 936MHz (11-11-11-30) Motherboard ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. M5A97 R2.0 (Socket 942) 32 °C Graphics PLL2210W (1920x1080@60Hz) 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 (ASUStek Computer Inc) 61 °C Storage 931GB Western Digital WDC WD1003FZEX-00MK2A0 (SATA ) 31 °C 931GB
Is any of this worth saving or should I scrap it and build a new one? I have a $1000 budget to build a new one if needed. What could be saved and what should I add to update this machine to be worthy of running Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects for years to come?
