This is my first post here having just joined.
I am looking for a PC (I know I can't afford a Mac) to do some video editing. I have a Kodak zi8 which records in HD, and I have Cyberlink PowerDirector 8.
I've just been quoted £834 for this set up. But will it do the trick? And are there any obvious changes I should request? Or anything I'm buying that I really don't need?
Many, many thanks for your advice
