Question Which One?

Which would be best:

2TB hard drive @ 7200 rpm, 12GB Ram, eight core AMD processor & 1 GB video or:

2TB hard drive @ 5400 rpm, 16GB Ram , Quad core intel & 2 GB video.

Main purpose is photo and a little video editing.

Thank you,

Steve

Default Choice Three

The two I mentioned are the best in my price point but after reading responses (and others elsewhere) I searched more and found this for the same price:

SPECIFICATIONS
Processor 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3770 Processor6
Operating System Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit7
Memory (RAM) 12GB PC3-10600 DDR38
Hard Drive 2TB (7200RPM) SATA9
Wireless Integrated Bluetooth® and Wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n featuring Single-band (2.4GHz) 2x2 MIMO technology4
Optical Drive SuperMulti DVD Burner10
Video Graphics AMD Radeon™ HD 7450 graphics card with 1GB DDR3 dedicated memory, DVI, (VGA via dongle), HDMI capabilities, and support for Microsoft® DirectX® 11, and one or two monitors. Up to 4855MB Total Available Graphics Memory as allocated by Windows® 7

Its and intel processor w/7200 rpm HD and 12GB RAM so I'm thinking good setup?

Keep it coming.

Steve

It's a nice setup. What do you plan on using it for?

I think that rig would suit you well.
