That price range is very wide, I could recommend you a $700 cheapie or an over-the-top $2500 system...
Do you want it to be another laptop, like what you currently have, or would you prefer a desktop?
The minimum specs you have listed will be easy to recommend and even exceed. What country do you live in?
Also, to let you know i will only be using credit card not store credit card (bestbuy,circuit city) so they won't take my credit card if i buy in store (maybe online and if i buy online how long does it take to arrive?)
I also won't be saving videos on internal hd but an external seagate hds (5 year warranty) thats because i don't want to have my internal hd give up on me very quick because by downloading videos on it some of the time.
I also won't be buying a MAC because it doesn't have enough features like windows, don't play many PC games and a lot expensive.
From your comments, Is this the right hardwares for me (i am not purchasing the exact product but similar to it if it meets my requirements):
