Thanks in advance.
Over £800 - seems a bit overkill for what he wants it to do. I would expect that computer to have the power to run the country, never mind do a bit video editing.
Well hes asked me to build it round the processor and he has sed he doesnt have a budget as such he wants it to be a decent spec. I personally wouldnt spend this much
