Not sure what they're smoking to claim 27.2GHz...

The PC itself is good, but you would need a very high end Graphics card depending on what type of editing you're thinking of doing as that one is onboard and has no chance of rendering a 3D model.

You're getting a good deal on a chip, drive and OS, but you're going to have to invest more on a graphics card as well.

27.2GHz / 8 threads = 3.4GHz.

It doesn't work like that though and the seller is trying to lure people in with grandiose claims.

The video card in that machine is pretty weak.

I am not familiar with the price differences between US and UK.

But this guy is building a much better machine for about the same price. I hope it can help you.

I ran the 8350 in the GA-970A-D3 and it wasn't pretty. Getting it stable required aftermarket heatsinks on both the VRM and chipset.
