Hi Guys!

I have simple request. I need to buy a new desktop PC for AVCHD video editing. I will be using the CANON HF G10 to shoot and will be editing 1 - 30 min videos for uploading on the web. Some effects but not heavy. I put all my $ into the Camera equipment so my budge is tight at the moment. I will most likely be using Sony Vegas 9 or 10.

Below is the link to the configuration I would like to purchase:

1) Please let me know if it will do the job without stuttering.
2) If not, can you please suggest a configuration that will work for me?

i am in the uk so not familiar with us prices but that seems a bit expensive and its not a

great graphics card--you can get software that leverages your graphics card to speed up

video conversion--i would have thought maybe a gtx550 or 560 would be better

does it have to be a hp?
