    Unhappy Best PC parts for editing HD videos at an affordable price?

    Hi, new to the forums, I was just wondering what would be the best PC parts for editing HD videos at a affordable price. I already have a camera (Nikon 3100) and editing software (PowerDirector 11 Deluxe) chosen, but now I had to pick the parts for my PC. Ideally the PC would cost less than 550 and include the following, (using the very little knowledge I have, I have bracketed the parts that I picked on before);

    CPU (AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor)
    CPU Cooler (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler)
    Motherboard (ASRock 970 Extreme3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard)
    Memory ( 4X AMD Entertainment Edition 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory)
    Storage (Hitachi Deskstar 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive)
    Video Card (EVGA GeForce GTX 480 1.5GB Video Card)
    Sound Card (Asus Xonar DG 24-bit 96 KHz Sound Card)
    Power Supply (SeaSonic 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply)
    Optical Drive (Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer)

    Which comes to a total of 538.75, any suggestions on how to improve would be greatly appreciated

    A 2nd drive, and more RAM; assuming you want to use 64bit apps.

    Using a SSD for the OS/programs is the best thing I ever did to speed up my PC.
