    I'm looking to buy a computer that won't lag or stutter while I'm editing with sony vegas 12.
    I wan't to be able to put 2 or 3 hd video clips right on top of each other adding some transitions and effects without having any lag issues.
    I have an 3 year old hpenvy 17 laptop that can run it fairly well, but it tends to overheat, freeze and lag while trying to preview the clips I'm editing so I'm looking to see if this computer I'm looking at can do that for me?
    Also, the price tag is $1,600.00 kind of expensive. So, if you guys have any other cheaper options to recommend to get what I need out of it I would really appreciate it, thanks!!!

    Quick reply - Get at least two hard drives, program/OS on one, source video on another (preferably "output"on a third)
    Graphics acceleration on nVideo cards maxed out at GTX 580 - later models don't work (with acceleration) Go for an AMD R9 290 (apparently)

    Which i7 are you thinking about? An SSD for your OS and an SSD for your video files should make a huge difference as well.
