Hello, I'm needing to purchase a new computer . My old one (over 10 years old) is acting up. I need one which will run my software programs, hopefully easier than my present pc. My image editor is Corel 2018 and my video editor is Magix. My question is, will the model 570-p023w run these software programs easily ? I also have a raw image editor which my present pc runs very slowly. thank you--tom

Video and image editing is CPU intensive. More processor cores (hyperthreading) and processor speed make for a better experience.
A better GPU also helps.
This product should encode faster than your 10 year old system.
I would look at better processor (which would include a more advanced chipset) and GPU choices if you are doing professional encoding.

You are welcome.
The i7-7700 is a decent processor. It has four cores, turbos to 4.2 GHz, and hyperthreading.
You might want to look at an HP model having an i7-8700. It turbos to 4.6GHz, has six cores, and hyperthreading.
You would want to look at a better graphics card.
The 570-p023w has integrated graphics and a 180 watt power supply.
You would have to upgrade the power supply when you upgrade the graphics card.
You are better off selecting a system that has the right components when you buy.
HP has other systems that will give you what you need at purchase.

I am looking now at a model HP Pavilion 570-p056 i7-7700 . I know very little of whats a good graphics card , this one has a GeForce GT 730 .
With all the different configurations available its kinda mind boggling. This pc is a mini=tower ,does that affect anything?

You want to look at an Nvidia GTX 1060 or better.
You will have much trouble upgrading the graphics card in a mini tower (570) chassis.
This HP product, 750-630xt, has good specs. I would go with a 500 watt power supply (cooling solution has to be upgraded) in case you want to upgrade the graphics card in the future.
I don't know what your budget is and I am not recommending you buy this product. This configuration should be very nice for video encoding. Plus it is upgradable.

I looked at the 750-630xt and it looks like a very good machine . Its a little bit more than what I want to spend , but it might be the best and smartest way to go.
I've been reading up on graphic cards, I never realized their importance . Always figured they were more for gaming systems.
After I think the 750-630xt ove , I will probably order me one.
Thanks for all the help and info !!
