    well i am on a low budget. and i don't want a huge computer. would that what i am looking at be ok to encode video? because i need a good processor for that. any suggestions would help.

    Some recommendations:
    The AMD kit is cheaper, but less powerful than the Intel one. Go for the Intel system if your budget allows, otherwise go with the AMD system. Both are much better than your original proposed build.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes. :)
