Got a buddy who wants a PC so he can start a YouTube channel. Needs it to do video editing (maybe a bit of gaming, but he wants to be a blogger for the most part). It's been a while since I've been in the computer building industry, so this list was the best I could throw together with my knowledge.
OS, monitors, and all peripherals are absolutely necessary as per his request. He would also like to have the optical drive. Budget is around $700 preferably.
Any suggestions to get more bang for my buck? Or even better, any way to decrease the price without sacrificing TOO much performance? Also, how would this PC perform doing video editing? Obviously, you're not going to get great performance, but it would it be doable?
I don't think you can feasibly make a video-editing PC for the desired price. If it's not possible, how can we make this as cheap as possible and still be able to run some of these programs?
