Hey! I've noticed you guys are all pretty knowledgeable about computers and you helped me out before while I was browsing around as a guest
Anyways, I am wondering if this computer would be a good buy for me. I only have a few uses I will be using it for: Video Editing in both SD and HD, but much more in HD. I am pretty confidant it can edit the SD of course.
The specific camcorder footage in question would be coming from the Pansonic TM-90 (2011 model). I would be using 1080/60p function on the camera.
Anyways the two uses: Video Editing (At ABSOLUTE longest it would be 45 minute length videos, most of the time less than 20), and watching the occasional YouTube Video.
I am on a budget, and only have $800 (this costs $750) to spend on a computer, and it must be bought in the next two weeks.
Specs of the computer:
Intel Core i7 2600
16Gb DDR3 SDRAM (upgradeable to 32Gb, I don't expect to need 32Gb, but if you would recommend upgrading, then please say so)
Comes with a 1TB Hard Drive I expect to upgrade.
Gigabyte GA-H67MA-USB3-B3 motherboard, which seems okay. I believe it is only used on the SandyBridges, so I'm assuming it's adequate.
(Intel H67 Express Chipset)
It has one PCIEX16 Graphics Card Slot, and I would like a recommendation on what card to get? Or if you believe I don't need one please tell me.
It also comes with Windows 7 Home that I am upgrading to proffesional.
