Buying a new PC for Video Editing

  Darudi 19:25 21 Feb 2008

I would greatly appreciate your help to identify which desktop PC I should buy - I am no guru, but am competent so good plain english advice would be appreciated but with some specific details on video card type etc would be welcomed! I would also like some guidance on which video editing software to buy.

The requirement is for video editing from a standard definition Sony Camcorder which I can then burn to DVD. I have circa £1000 to spend, and want to get something that has potential for future upgrade.

Historically I have always bought Dell and have been very happy but have concerns about the quality of their screens.

Suggestions on the specification to go for and manufacturer would be appreciated.
