    if you dont want to uuild yourself cyberpower are good, and for that budget i would recomend an i5 based system with at least a gtx 460 and 6 gig of ram, then again, since you are video editing a true hexacore could help you in which case amds top end prosessor (10XX phenom) would also be exelent

    The majority of reviews i see online do have Dino PC as a bit hit & miss, but they do offer good systems for less money compared to other sites, which is why i picked them on this occasion. [URL="http://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/"]Cyberpower[/URL] and [URL="http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/"]PC Specialist[/URL] imo are more reliable companies, but you will need to cut down on some of the quality of the components as they charge a bit more accordingly. Persoanly, my PC is from PC Specialist, and i would reccomend them if you can spend a little more.

    However, there has been someone posting on here claiming to be from Cyberpower, maybe they can offer you a deal ?

    It's best to get one really fast card rather than two slower cards, Less compatibility issues, heat, noise, power usage, and if one fails, then your back to getting crappy frames.

    Your welcome.

    A 1GB 6850 or for a little more the 1GB GTX 460 should be fine. If you go upto say a GTX 470, then you will want to go for a 750w Corsair PSU. The price jumps are quite reasonable actually upto the Corsair 850w. But you will be pushing the £1k mark.
