Last May I ordered a new HP and upgraded to CS5. I just got their performance one and topped out the graphics card and memory. It smokes Full AVCHD faster than I used to edit SD. Everything is so fast and my work space in AE is huge. I also got the largest monitor they had vs. going tosplit screen and am totally happy with all the above.

I paid about 2,200-2,300 for the computer and ran right around 3 with the upgrade and since I was cleared for more like you are I snuck in a couple1tb externals for storage of HD video. Yhe only thing about the whole upgrade for me was that Esata Externals are finiky with windows 7 for some reason, I haven’t looked into a work around and just ran firewire to them when I need them.
