If you have $1300 to spend you can get a nice nice rig.
I'll start you off

Processor

Tehh,, That's a totally and completely incorrect stereotype. AMD is not always better for gaming, nor Intel better for gaming. Same for editing. It's solely based on which processor you buy and which instruction sets it comes with. Intel's new Q9 series procs have SSE4.1 digital encoding instruction sets for compiling/editing quicker. I'm sure AMD has something just as good.

If you're doing more gaming, spend less on the processor, more on the video card. Get a core2duo or a lower clocked quad core, and get a GTX260.

For the most part its accurate, if u consider a 920 core i7 or a 955BE

but since aussie bucks are a little weak to the doller i'd say hes got about 1090 bucks to buy stuff with in American, but i maybe wrong
