Computer gee... I mean, gentlemen, I need help.
Okay, nerds, listen up. I can't stand your language, it irritates me and makes me feel like a fool and a buffoon. All this gigga-what and terror-bite, makes me want to megahertz you so bad. You seem to have managed to take something as simple as a computer and made up something you refer to as "specs" that is untranslatable babble in order to milk the common imbecile, yours truly, into buying something "user friendly" and entirely too expensive (*cough* Macs *macs*) just so you can maintain your autonomy over your geek endeavours. I'm on to you.
Now that is out of the way, I need your assistance.
I've been looking for a computer that will be good for video editing. Simple at first, nothing too spectacular. I have been using my notebook from 2009 and I barely need to tell you that it is nowhere near up to the task.
I'm on a budget, a very, very, extremely tight, you cannot fathom how tight a budget I am on.
It is to start a business. At first it is just going to be simple things, text over footage, fade aways, easy **** you can do with a simple editing program.
I appreciate that you will likely tell me what software to use, but before you do, please don't. Software and the user interface stuff is something that I have no problem with, surprisingly, considering my hardware knowledge is somewhere in the prehistoric era. I am quite adept at navigating my way through a program once it is on my computer. Not only that, but I have quite decent google fu as well as people with whom I can consult.
The main issue is the hardware. I have a computer for surfing the net, don't need that. Just need a computer for editing video. That's it.
Should I look into one getting built? No, I will not be doing the building, so the second part to that is do people build computers for specific tasks such as video editing and is it cheaper than buying a ready made one?
What computer, remembering I am on a budget, is best for video editing? I must stress that all the CPU, RAM, whatever fucking other **** that you think I "should" know, I don't, nor do I really care. I just need a clear answer. If there is no clear answer, tell me I need to start learning this ****.
I've been doing some research (this isn't the only website I've visited):
Every single one seems to say, "when you are looking for a computer for video editing, you need to look for..." and then go on to explain details of components that, although I know they are technical terms for the components, are just going to make me look like the guy that goes to a mechanic and asks for the "super flux capacitor" to be fixed when I go to a store to look for prices.
