1 gig doesnt cut it in video editing IMO. 1 gig is also not enough for servers

id say get an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ or a 3500+ They are both excellent processors, and AMD edges out Intel in gaming.

I personally prefer AMD cause of the better performance to price ratios, but Im sure that some Intel fans are gonna flame me for this :P

i won't flame you, but i disagree that amd has more bang for the buck than inte (except at the super expensive end, there the fx-55 beats out the 3.73ee easily for less money). they both excel at different tasks, anyone that argues that intel is better at gaming than amd or that amd is better than intel with video editing is just a fanboy. buy the one that suits you best, don't listen to fanboys. both can as cheap ( a64 3000 or 2.8ghz prescott) or expensive (fx-55 or 3.73ghz ee prescott) as you want them to be.

don't buy packages, buy all the parts seperately and put it together yourself

we can't suggest anything right now cuz you're not buying right now

but you'll have to go AMD
