Help me find a computer please
Ok, so I'm looking to get a new computer or laptop for my birthday but to be honest I don't have a clue what I'm looking for, so this place looked like the right place I go for help. I would like for it to play mine craft and battlefield 3 as well as able to run Sony Vegas for my editing. I would greatly appreciate any help because I literally have no idea what to search. Preferably a relatively cheap of but in aware these sort of computers are not cheap.

Thanks a lot for any help

I would steer clear of Laptops as they usually cannot be upgraded and to get one that will play high end games like BF3 and video editing will cost a good chunk of money.

If you look to buy a complete system then look on the Dell site to get an idea of price.

Haven't really got a budget at the moment as I'm
Still saving, what would the starting price be around for something with these capabilities? (don't worry about the price of editing software because I already have that sorted )

Thanks

Hope this help you narrow down components you need for your system. (graphic card wise)

BF3 benchmark tests: this is based on desktop components, assume similar ones for laptop should still work.
