Hello Everyone,

Love this forum and you guys always seem to have the answers.

I'm looking for a pre-built system around the $800 mark. My main intention is to do HD video editing using Sony Vegas and Adobe Pro. I also do work in Photoshop and Lightroom and often will have image and video editing programs open at the same time as well as dreamweaver and web.

I plan to upgrade the video card of whatever I buy afterwards.

I'm currently using a Gateway Laptop NV57H44u with a i5-2430M Intel HD graphics 3000 and 8GB ram and while editing video it can get choppy and I need super smooth video while editing. For the type of video I'm producing I need to know if there are any bumps in my filming and when the video is choppy because of computer slowdown it makes it very difficult to tell.

I use dual monitors as well, one for video editing and one for photo editing/dreamweaver usually.

I've narrowed it down to these two systems mostly because of the pricing. I will be upgrading the ram in either system to 16GB (I'm going to buy the ram aftermarket), and I expect that I will upgrade the video card if necessary (aftermarket).

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Clarify that HP price. I see $1049 for the basic system.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)
