The integrated graphics is a down side for video work.

It is a desktop PC?

Buy a dedicated video card.

"8GB PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM memory (4 x 2GB for ultimate performance)(expandable to 16GB)" That's good but you also need to buy a dedicated video card about 1024MB for you to have a serious smooth task in the future.

For some people, the bigger the better. Just like myself. :)
