So what do you think the best plan of action would be? To upgrade my GPU card or Video card? Also, I found that if I use the "Render Entire Work Area" function in Premiere, it renders the clips and turns the Yellow Bar to Green and then I'm able to edit smoothly with no Choppy playback. I can even playback at Full resolution and get perfectly smooth playback. But now a new problem is arising, this work-around was working, but now when I Render Entire Work Area, it renders about half way and then shuts down my entire computer. Any ideas as to what this may be? I did a little looking around online and think it could be the cooling fan?
Well, the only reason computers really shut down are one of these:
-Some failure in hardware, CPU dying, frying a motherboard, or PSU dying.
-Power Supply Unit (PSU) isn't supplying enough power for the computer and it shuts down.
-Computer is overheating and it's internal thermometers are telling it to avoid damage and shut off.
In your cause it seems like your computer is getting overloaded and the cooling fans can not keep it cool enough. Rendering videos is extremely tough work for your CPU. They generally get incredibly hot and you need a good, ventilated system to stop this from happening. CPU fans are quite cheap on newegg and are a great upgrade. Depending on your motherboard being an Intel or AMD socket type, then that will distinguish what fan you need.http://www.newegg.ca...N82E16835186047
I use that on my current computer which is a gaming build and it keeps my processor really cool and I've never had trouble with it overheating or melting it's socket.
