Depending how serious about editing you are I'd go with a Quad core not a dual core....

And for an OS make sure that you get a 64 bit so that you can use your full 4 GB's

If I was you I'd go with either E or F since they are quad cores and would be better for music editing purposes....
Thats true but in the questions and answers below (on system F URL) the seller offers various upgrades for free including a free upgrade to the 9800 GT. Does that make a big difference? Cheers for the quick reply by the way, very much appreciated

System F is of course the best, but I also like C for its value for money...
