It’d be cheaper to buy a pre-built than do a build. He’s still going to need money for software, Vegas is around $600 and Audition is $350 separate. So, he’d need to find a desktop or laptop that had enough gas to push Vegas in HD for less than $600 (don’t forget shipping fees and or taxes.) If he were an experienced builder it could be done (it’d be a stretch!) Otherwise, I say just get a pre-built. Just be clear on the spec requirements to make sure the computer had the minimums.
