Default Need help buying computer

Hey everyone,
I like do a lot of image processing and watch HD videos. Right now I am using
a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor 3600+ 2.00GHz with 2.5 GB Ram

My video card is NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS

RIght now I have to watch HD videos with all post processing off and VLC on "Hurry up" so the video can keep up with the sound (looks pretty bad).. Loading my RAW image files is pretty slow too.. I think I get by because I am patient but would like a lot better performance.

I am looking at this Acer Aspire AM3802-U9062 at Acer | Aspire AM3802-U9062 Desktop Computer | PT.SCR02.009 | B&H
Here are the specs.(it may be easier just to click the link)

So does everyone think this will get the job done? I am very cheap so hopefully I can get this computer as a gift but the price of this on this one is pretty much as high as I want to go..
I would love all feedback. Thank you.
