Purchase Date: I'm buying this computer between now and the end of summer.
Budget: Less than $700, but $800 MAX.
System Usage: First and foremost- video editing and HD capabilities. Second- burning. Third- basic internet/downloading.
Parts not Required: Speakers, and that's about it.
Preferred Websites: TigerDirect, Newegg
Overclocking: Not necessary at all.
Monitor Resolution: Not sure yet, but probably around 20 inches.
Additional Comments: I'm using this computer for editing large, uncompressed videos. Everything else takes a backseat, need quite a bit of space for rendering and burning. Also, need Firewire, as I'm going to import from DV tape video cameras
