Hey guys, I'm having a lot of shots ruined by my GH4 constantly focus finding, despite me standing right in front of it... in front of a white background. The thing is kind of a P.O.S... to be honest.

Hey Jeff, I have an opportunity to pick up an XPS 8700 for $475.00 but I don't know if these specs match the one you had suggested to me previously. Would Premiere Pro run smoothly with these specs?

Brand: Dell
Processor Type: Intel Core i7 4th Gen.
Product Line: XPS
Graphics Processing Type: Nvidia GTX 745
Model: XPS 8700
Memory: 16GB
Operating System Edition: Windows 10 Home

I'm most concerned with the graphics card. There's so many Nvidia's it's hard to figure out which is good, mid-range, or lousy.

I have until tomorrow morning. Hopefully you'll see this before then!
