I want a computer that will be really good at video editing and these are the parts that I have. I am willing to make some purchases but I don't quite know what else to buy. I don't want to spend much.
If you can, please make suggestions as to what the limitations on upgrades are. I only want upgrades that will give me a good boost in performance.
I have never put together a system from start to finish so also feel free to suggest processor cooling fans, thermal pastes, and anything else I might need other than what is above to do this job. Remember I'm a college student so inexpensive = good
