Well your ram speed is very slow ddr3 memory. For $75 you should be able to get some 16Gb of 1333 or 1600mhz ram.

Another upgrade would be to get a second SSD for cache and scratch disk data for video rendering.

Lime the other poster said a GPU upgrade would also be a great idea if your editing program uses gpu power too. What's the video editing programs being used?
