I have asked in a previous thread what pc is best if i wanted a quad core pc. but i just wanted to know.

What is the most important thing i should look at when buying a pc, is it the CPU/Memory or the graphics card/cpu and memory?

If i buy a pc with an integrated graphics card would i still be able to edit videos smoothly (hd videos).

This is a spec i've seen for another pc

ZOOSTORM PC
Built to award winning standards, the Zoostorm Quad Core range of desktop PC's deliver fantastic computing performance, exceptional gaming and are perfect for most home applications including office, e-mail, internet, gaming downloading and all multimedia activities. Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66GHz processor. 4Gb DDR II RAM. 1Tb SATA II hard drive. DVD+/-RW Double Layer drive. On board graphics. 10/100 LAN. Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium. Helpline number: 0844 8006183.

Thats all the info i have on this pc

Gaming is not an issue for me as i only require it for burning dvds and editing hd videos.

I can get this system for £400

it's just the base unit.

And can anyone tell me how long does it take to burn a single movie on dvd using a quad core pc on nero. as it takes me over an 1 hour on my p4, 1gb ram, x550 radeon pc.

I have looked into this as I am building a PC for my son who does video editing all of the time and the opinion appears to be that the CPU is the most important factor in Rendering video
for writing dvd's I would say the speed of your hard disk and dvd writer would be a factor

So would you say this is a good CPU to opt for Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66GHz inc 4gb of ram? @ £399

yes fine, not sure about other programs, but adobe Premiere is very good, i'd highly recommend it, it doesn't yet support multi-core and graphics card acceleration

Here is your problem, Vista version or Windows 7 Version needs to be 64 Bit , after 3GB of Ram Windows Struggles. So your gonna have to get a 64 bit version of the OS. You can still use your 32 /16 bit apps on it. Especially if your gonna do Video Editing....

I went for a dual core amd phenom 3.1ghz on the basis that not many programs will use the 3rd and 4th cores so the higher frequency would be better
However that is a good deal and will be a quick pc, I may be tempted to put a dedicated graphics card in there as i dont know what the onboard one is
