    good octocore, 16 gigs of ram, 1500 gigabyte hd, professional graphic design card.

    ur all set :)
  3. I heard some good and bad things about amd processors in comparison to intel? Also would buying used get me a better computer for the same price or is it just too risky
  4. i wouldnt recommand buying used unless u knew the person, and yeah id get new pc.

    8core amds are quite good actually, amds getting back in the game, and for ur budget fits in nicely.

    :)
  5. intel xeon 4 core 8 thread, at cheap price :) you might want to change some parts as you like...
    video editing favors nvidia cuda cores for hardware acceleration
