OK, so I did a search but nothing definitive for what I want. Besides, this stuff changes so much a reply to a thread 2 months ago may not apply today. I am looking for a system I can do moderate gaming, video editing (digital camera clips, etc.) and burning of CD’s/ dvd's (for music, movies and PS2 backups). I was thinking the 2.4 Ghz range with 1 gig of RAM and of course the ability to expand if need be. I need everything such as the case, power supply, etc. I do not need top of the line, but definitely something that will last on a moderate budget. Under $1000 is preferable, but willing to go over. Thanks for the help.
