Need help building or buying computer for $800

Hello ladies and gents. As you can see from the thread I need help building or buying a compuetr for $800. The reason I say building or buying is simply because I need a great deal of memory, and I wanted to know what would give me more bang for my buck. I am using this comp for video editing. This will in turn be uploaded onto youtube in regards for my company. Now, any suggestion on brand name or part prices would be a great help.

  1. RAM

    I suppose that's a start... if RAM is your biggest concern find the fastest out there... This is DDR31600 @ 6-8-6-24

    I don't do a ton of video editing, but I'm pretty sure if it fast for gaming, it'll do just as well with video editing.
  2. Hi el_matador23,

    You should google it (: One of the first links is pretty good: http://www.videoguys.com/Guide/E/Videoguys+System+recommendations+for+Video+Editing/0x4aebb06ba071d2b6a2cd784ce243a6c6.aspx

    Basically:
    - CPU with as many cores as possible (doesn't have to be super high frequency, just multiple cores)
    - Graphics card that has lost of dedicated memory, 2GB or more, possible a NVIDIA Quadro (doesn't need to be super powerful, just alot of memory so there are some affordable Quadros).
    - If you will be editing long video files get a bunch of large hard drives, 1 or 2TB in RAID0 so your loading times aren't too long, but that might start to cost if you get a decent RAID controller and all.

    Hope that helps,

    Google is your friend...
