Windows 7: Hardware Upgrade 7, Is Good?

For 3D and video editing the cpu you quoted looks suitable. I'm in the UK so not familiar with US prices. You can compare processor power here

PassMark - CPU Benchmarks - List of Benchmarked CPUs

higher is better. For gaming the graphic card is important. Not my thing but others here can help re gfx.

'sort of all really' - my mate used to work in a guitar shop and the 1st question he'd ask a customer was 'what kind of stuff are you into' ie jazz, metal, country etc. When they replied 'well, sort of everything' his heart would sink. Then he'd sell them a Strat copy.

Very solid choice for someone that uses a computer for everything.

If it was my computer I would use a very hight quality cpu cooler.

I would also recommend Windows 7/64

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - Newegg.com
