    Guys I know this is a heavliy favored Mac user forum but I need you guys opinions as well. I will say I do own a PC ,its a HP 002 Blackbird and I have plans to upgrade or change.
    I have a question concerning which computer to purchase. I will be using the computer for editing ONLY.Which choice should I go with? This or something similar. All the while keeping my cost somewhere $1500.00 -2000.00

    Or rebuild my HP 002Blackbird keeping only the liquid cooling system and the power supply which is a Topower Powerbird TOP-1100W, and use these parts

    Thanks for everyones input.

    The first link is broken.

    If you are doing serious editing either get a Mac Pro or just upgrade your Windows based PC.

    The i7-4770K is faster than what the iMac uses and it can be overclocked.

    Get a mac and then run Windows in VM. Best of both worlds and when Windows inevitable eats itself, just revert to snapshot for easy recovery.

    How does Windows eat itself?

    First link is broken. I would say look into the PC rebuild. Make sure your motherboard and cooling work with the newer socket. I would assume there wouldn't be any issues but you never know. Just do the research on the case. I don't know how proprietary it is. For the parts you posted you'd have to spend closer to $2000 to get that on the iMac side. With the iMac you are getting an excellent screen though. Personally I would look into a PC rebuild. Especially if you have all the software already working / licensed for PC.
