That up there is too much machine for what you want honestly. I'll build you something else when I get to work.

Gamers don't game on two screens, but they can game on 3 in Surround or Eyefinity. Not really worth the hassle, and the games you want to play more than likely won't support it.

I personally require 2 monitors for at home and work. Don't like to use a computer without 2 screens.

Edit: How serious of video editing?

Alright, so I'll go with one screen, thanks ^w^

What do you mean you will build me something??

I'm not looking for something to make the next big blockbuster, just looking for something so that I can have some fun with my hobby. I have worked with Imovie before and another program that I just can't remember the name of (XP) and those were fine with me. Mostly I do home movies, and I hope to make them good enough to post on Youtube or some site like that. (I know I can put BS on Youtube and it be fine but I actually want to post something with a bit of quality so it will probably be some time before I actually post something.)

He means he will put together a parts list for a build (if you want to build yourself) that will suit your needs better without costing a lot.

If you don't want to do a build yourself...then you could order parts from NCIX.US and they offer to build it for you for an extra fee ($20 I think? could be a little more) - but that takes all of the fun out of it .

I found a computer that someone else built and is selling. Here are all of the specs of the computer they posted.

dual core processor - 8gb memory - 2x 250gb hard drives - 2x dvd rw - SD card reader - nice video card with vga + dvi & hdmi ports plus 10 usb ports
Can also include WiFi card if needed. Running Windows 7 Pro - ccleaner - malwarebytes - security essentials + open office.


Do you think it would fit my needs?

Those are very vague specs...

Depends on the actual hardware and price...

Duel core could mean 10 years old, and nice video card means it works, nothing more and could be a $25 card when new. Most ad that vague are usually by either someone who hasn't a clue about computers or someone who found one in the trash and got it cleaned up enough to sell to someone who doesn't have a lie for a quick buck.

LOL no, don't buy it.


If anything, go with what was linked before. Substitute the Toshiba drive for a WD or HGST. Substitute the eVGA PSU for a Seasonic 520w M1211, and sub the MX100 SSD for a Samsung EV0 840.
