First of all what is your budget,what sort of games are you likely to play and can you provide a link to the PC you are interested in?

are you sure about the meemory. I don't know anything that could hold 1 terrabyte.

my budget is around £430. and the site that im looking at buying from is pcspecialist.

kevscar. do you think i would need more than a terrabyte or less?

thanks for your help.

?memory: 1tb? - no way. Do you mean the Harddrive?

Asus M4A78LT-M LE Ram memory 8 GB (max)

1 Terabyte is 1000 Gigabytes. I guess you mean the hard drive rather than the memory?

Before you order from pcspecialist...

copy and paste the above into a google search

sorry meant RAM not hard drive memory :L

would you recommend these specs (with 4gb of RAM) for use of casual gaming (minecraft, COD, etc) and video editing or do you think i would need a more powerful system?

thanks for your help.

That system seems to be capable enough for video editing and other normal processes you'd want to use it for. I'm not a gamer so I can't advise on the graphics card, but here is a review of the card with some test results at the bottom of the page. click here Hope it helps.
