  1. Nevermind, didn't include CPU, RAM and HDD...

    I don't think that you can find anything that will play the most recent games on high settings in the laptop side, for that price. You could probably do that with a built PC though. Depends on if you really need it to be a laptop or not.

    Do not listen to Seladon, he has absolutely no idea what he is talking about.

    Look at this:

    It meets all the specs that you listed above. I know from personal experience that it can run all the recent games (Assassins Creed Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty Ghosts, ARMA III, etc.). I have no doubt that It will be able to run decently with whichever video editing software you may need to use.

    ASUS is a great company as well, and each laptop I have owned has lasted at least 4-5 years. They actually manufacture the majority of the parts that you will find inside any other computer you purchase today.
  3. First, look at the date on the post, you're a bit late to the party.
    Second, this deal wasn't there when I answered here.
    Third, you're not even fitting his budget.
