I've got $3500 and want a Windows based PC. I'm going to buy it, not build it. If you're in the San Antonio area I'll take bids We will use it for surfing, running Office Pro, and light home video & photo editing. I want a new monitor for that price. I know for my purposes I could probably get away with a cheaper machine but i don't care. For that matter you could trade your Glock for a Jennings. My thoughts as a novice: Intel i7? 2TB HD (should I get multiple HD's and set up RAID?) 32 or 64GB RAM? (what kind of RAM?) What type of video card? I'd like to occasionally edit home videos. I'm not a gamer. Windows 7? How many USB ports? TV tuner I need advice on how to prioritize things -- RAM vs CPU, etc. Thanks!
