I've been editing videos for several years. I use Sony Vegas Pro. My boyfriend is in a band and the majority of the filming and editing I have done is of his performances. I upload some videos to YouTube, but also put them on DVD for his band and parents to watch (and one day our children can watch them!). The YouTube videos I create are 5 mins max. The DVDs can range from 60-90mins. I'd like to start creating some compilation discs
Most recently I used to use an old Acer laptop for my editing, but rendering times were painfully slow.
I'd like to buy a new desktop PC for between £450-£550. Where is the best place to buy one? I've been looking at a few sellers who build machines on ebay, but I don't really know what to look for.
Can I get a semi-decent desktop for this price? What should I be looking for, and from where? I have upgraded parts within desktops in the past, but I don't have the time, or the technical know-how to build something from scratch.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
These are a couple of systems I have looked at on ebay:
