Thanks johnney, but is the graphics cards good enough?

Just about any graphics card is good enough, video editing is cpu and memory intensive, onboard graphics will lend memory from the system, not a good idea when your editing footage, the fx5500 will serve you well, but won't play the latest games if you plan on this in the future.
