    probably not. faster disk speed would be more useful.
    TBH - 2*desktops would still be better value.

    At the moment im looking at an Acer with a 1gb card.

    almost anything is going to be higher spec than what he is using at the moment.
    the ATI 4870 or there abouts should be good enough for video editing ( does the screen have to be 17" ) but as per above I would go with the mac book pro

    This probally does not meet all your requirements, but is still a bargin for the price, and worth having a look at on the offchance it has a 1/2 decent graphics.
