    It'll give you much better performance than your original build. Just throw in whatever mouse and keyboard you want and you're good to go. If you don't plan on doing a whole lot of video editing, I would suggest you drop the CPU down a notch. The i5 3570k is more than capable of handling itself in light video editing and for £100 less than the i7.
