for this computer it is fine if i have to build it by my self but i would like if i just got it pre built online
i would mostly be using this computer for video editing and play some games just like battle field and minecraft.
i would like to have a type of nvidia GPU that has about 1gb of memory and a 500gb hard drive with about 4-8gb ddr3 ram and i would like a motherboard witht he possibility to have 2 graphic cards and up to 32gb of memory that i can upgrade it isnt nessicery for the 2 GPU but would be nice. i would also like to have windows 7. under 500$ would be the best price for me. i dont care about the case to much but one that has a side window to see all of the stuff inside. and for the power supply a one with atleast 80 bronze class
Thanks :)

This is the the cheaper video editing PC you can buy, absolutely no gaming tough..

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($324.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($124.99 @ NCIX US)
Memory: Patriot G2 Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($84.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling 500W ATX12V Power Supply ($57.08 @ NCIX US)
Total: $692.03

*video editing will be kinda slow without a decent GPU for GPGPU.

*no SSD so applications will not launch very quick....

*battle field will be unplayable with decent settings.

That is not what I ment I said the possibility to upgrade to more RAM and I wouldn't be using major video editing mostly just small montages and comentarys

I don't see the OP asking for an i7.

He asked for a $500 system that could edit video and play light games. That's an i3-2120 with an nVidia low end video card. That's doable for close to $500 if he builds it.

Here is a starter build mostly taken from the $500 gaming build this month at toms:

CPU Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W
$125
CPU Cooler Intel Boxed Heat Sink And Fan 0
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V, Intel B75 Express, LGA 1155
$70
RAM 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3-1333 Memory Kit
$50
Graphics GeForce GT 640 $100 -oro HD6670 for $65 if he'll take AMD vs. nVidia. nvidia really has nothing good at low end.
Hard Drive Western Digital WD5000AAKX 500 GB SATA 6Gb/s $65
Case Rosewill R218-P-BK ATX Mid-Tower $30
Power Antec VP-450 450 W $38
Optical Samsung 22x DVD Burner Model SH-222BB/BEBE-OEM $14
WIN7 64 bit OEM $100

Total Price $600 with windows.
