It's been so long since I last built a computer that I feel far too out of date to help my friend enough.

My friend is looking to upgrade from his laptop to building a desktop computer, he doesn't play games and has no plans to, either, but he is starting to teach himself the basics of sony vegas video editing.

I'm looking for a build that will give him a decent render time for years to come, but with little to no emphasis on gaming capabilities. Is anyone up for the challenge of helping me find the parts to build him a solid computer? He didn't give me a specific budget, but I had hoped it would all come to $600-$800 including a 23" monitor. Thanks in advance!
