Hi Abu, the expected render times depends on a lot of factors, so it's almost impossible to say without generalising.
If you render your scene in 1-star quality each frame typically only takes a fraction of a second to render on a PC with the recommended specifications.
If your graphics card is old/slow and/or your scene is very complex (lots of detailed meshes, high resolution textures, spotlights, reflection planes, Global Illumination
effect etc) and/or you need to render a video in a high resolution (e.g. 2560x1440) you should expect each frame to take several seconds to complete.
You can see real-world rendering times in the Gallery
section of the forum, for example here
If you've already got a PC that meets the system requirements, I would highly recommend that you download the Demo version
(Small download but limited functionality and model library) or the 7-day trial version (No limitations apart from the 7 days). You can get the latter by contacting your local reseller on this page
Once you've installed it, try to import a model and create your own test scene (or load one of the included demo scenes) so you can see for yourself how long it takes to render a movie on your own PC.
