my specs for a video editing desktop
I'm waiting on my delivery from here, its worse then waiting for xmas! currently on the 12th day and still in pre production I'll mainly be using it for video editing and maybe a small bit of gaming. what does anyone think of the specs?
I'm already thinking of getting a SSD just to run Windows, sony vegas and other editing programmes i use on a regular basis.
It's a kind of budget PC coming in at just over £600 wanted an I7 but saved money going with a AMD

Should be a half decent video editing machine. Obviosuy on a low budget you can't quite get all the nice things like a caviar black HDD and an intel CPU but overall it should get you through editing videos no problems.
I can't stand waiting it drives me mad lol, but apparently it's the best bit! Enjoy it.
