I'm looking for a computer that will able to run video editing software well (Sony Vegas and Adobe Premiere) while making videos like this: http://www.youtube.com/CreepahWeegie (you don't have to click the link, only showing what videos I make) , and be able to play games at a decent quality (TF2, Garry's Mod, CS:S). I have about a 700 dollar budget to work with and I was wondering what would be the minimum to maximum specs for a computer dealing with those kind of things and what computer would be most beneficial fitting within my budget to do said things. Thanks

For a bit more, you can get this which has a mid range gpu which can play your games and easily and the cpu will work well with your video editing programs.

I was looking more towards a Laptop computer, but I can give this desktop a good see. Is there any laptops that would be good for this?

TOSHIBA Satellite P775D-S7144

This laptop will be able to play the games you mentioned easily and the processor is a quad core which should work well with the video editing programs.

For your gaming needs be sure the computer has a good graphics card. My daughter plays World of Warcraft and the video card was a major concern. She ended up with a Gateway(can't remember the model number but this was a couple of years back). She has 8GB of memory and a better video card than you usually get with the standard desktops. She did have to add an additional fan though after a little over a year. Seems the case fans lost some of their gusto after that and overheating became a problem - but now it runs great. (She spent about what you have to work with $700.)

I just recently remembered, that I would like to have an Intel Processor on the laptop, not AMD.
