Expert Review

Although advertised by HP as a gaming desktop, this model works very well as a computer for editing. It comes with an Intel i7 hexa-core CPU, but you can upgrade that to a faster chip or even an octa-core processor if you need better performance. You get 12GB of DDR4 RAM with this computer and there are options for upgrading to 24GB or 32GB if you run more memory-intensive software. The default hard drive on this system is 2TB which gives you plenty of storage although you can upgrade that to 3TB or add a solid state drive.

This pick includes a DVD burner with the option to upgrade to a Blu-ray reader/writer if you need one. You get a 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 video card with this system, but there are options for several more powerful cards as well. This is a great computer for editing if you want some customization choices, but don’t need as many options as you get with a company like Origin.Rating: 4.75/5
