You got two options, buy a OEM(pre-made) or custom built.

My main concern deals with how much muscle (and speed) will I need to run these editing and production programs.
I've been used to a Pentium 4 running XP...very slow going. Anything (i5, i7) above that will seem fast.
Thanks for the reply. PLR
