So, I decided to upgrade my computer and pass this one off to me son. I wanna try to start editing videos, other then that it's mainly used for graphics, most of the time I have multiple Adobe programs open at the same time. I want my computer to operate smoothly and fast, without the programs stalling or crashing. My budget is around $2,500.00 and it has to be a computer that I can get from Best Buy, and they must be stock items, nothing that is special order.

Any ideas? Oh yeah, what time of year do usually desktops get released, coz I would like to get a new release so it will last a bit :)

intel I7 is a good option. Socket 1366

Also Nvidia has good Quadro Cards with good capability's for Video editting
If for ATI i'd go with the HD 7xxx series...

Mainboards momentarily are Gigabyte MSI and Asus i personally find the most reliable, Gigabyte on top followed by asus. also go for a recent chipset.

Ram a minimum of 8Gig at 1,600MHz is a good choice for your plans with the thing. ((kingston HyperX personally my usual choice for my customers))

For speed purposes you could install an SSD for first hard drive, notice these are 120GB +- lately and are 2.5" ((with brackets for in a normal HD slot))

Will post more later when home. i am at work ATM so cannot post and review that quick.

The Cyberpower desktop has the fastest graphics card out of the lot and they do all have the same processor.

Hello, first look, it so seems that the dell as the SSD i reccomended, however these 4 systems are all quite interesting if you have to ask me.

Let me state you a detailed discription to ease your choice on these:
The first del - is a good choice if you want to base yourself on CPU and graphics power for sure, it has the necessary components enough for working on what you are requiring. seems they put a bluray player in as well... wich is handy for your new HD movies... must you want those...

Asus: Seems to have a lesser videocard then the first dell, wich is an invidia gtx 560 instead of the 640 GT in the dell above, other then that, its memory would surely make up for it i think... the 4tb of disk pase does seem a plus if you are planning to focus on disk size later on, however 4tb takes a few years to fill up so 2tb will definetly be great to start with i am sure.

The dell seems to have the SSD card that was recommended, with some of the most powerfull hardware on the market i see. wich is a great idea, also for later upgrades, seems an interesting bit.to however counter the first dell it doesn't have the bluray drive... however... i am sure a cd dvd is just fine for now.

Where the cyberpowerPC seems to be a computer to look at, seems custom built first off as it is a Coolermaster HAF-X, Coolermaster has made great cases with great cooling systems. wich is also required. This one seems to have the superior Graphics card towards the others in terms of performance. The liquid cooling will be a lot quieter ((i built one of these personally)), the blu-ray is back and then there is the newer version of the i7 Processor. only downside is that against the dell, none of the 3 others have SSD, neither does this one... However... if you do plan later updates, this one shall have plenty of space for you as the case itself lends to gaming possibility's.

My personal choice would go to the Cyberpower for your needs.

However, all 4 do suit your needs, it is your choice on wich you choose offcourse. they all 4 are quite matched in the discription for what you need. for now it is matter of personal choice i would say. i have pointed to you the things that catched my eye as a techie... however being the techie i can not point you to a certain choice as offcourse personal taste is what matters as well.

Hope i could help with this

Regards

Your welcome

Personally i would take the Cyberspower one...

Just cause i LOVE coolermasters work only, that is a case that can take your kid trough years of evolution... ((i am still working with a coolermaster case and it still operates beautifully with the cooling... however, even coolermaster does not make submlime cases like that anymore :P

However, i tested this case personally WITH the inbuilt watercooling system and i must say it rocks

Let me know what it becomes! here or in šPM it don't matter, i like to know where people end up that i advise! ;-)
