I've been looking for a basic video editing system, and would like some opinions on this one. Dell has a special for $350 off, which brings it down to about $800.

http://www.dell.com/us/p/xps-8900-desktop/pd

i7-6700 CPU
16GB DDR4 Memory
1TB HD 7200rpm
GTX 745 Video
DVDRW
WiFi N + Bluetooth 4.0
Windows 10 home

This is the best deal I've seen recently for what I want, with i7, 16GB, and under $1000. I know the weak spot here is the video. Unfortunately, it's not customizable. I'm working off a laptop now, so I'm pretty sure this would a big improvement. I'm thinking that I could upgrade the video later.

My needs are fairly basic: Assembly, editing, simple effects, and color correction. No need for 4K. I'm not looking for blazing speed, just a system that won't stutter and pause on me. Do you know of a similar system that would fit me for under $1000? Thanks.

By the way, I put this here because I'm looking for Premiere Pro CC specific recommendations. Apologies if this is not in the correct forum.

Hi Douglas. What is your plan for media and cache storage? You do not want media and cache on the same drive as your OS and applications.

System:
Dell Precision T7600 (x2)
Win 7 64-bit
32GB RAM
Adobe CC 2014 (as of 7/2015)
256GB SSD system drive
4 internal media drives RAID 5
Typically cutting short form from HD MP4 and P2 MXF.
